Roland Berger interview process in APAC

Hi,

I am in the mist of preparing for the interview round with Roland Berger in the APAC region and was wondering if anyone has past experience ?
What was the interviews like ? Any specific quantitative test ? Generally speaking, anything in particular or different ?

Thanks a lot !

Hello,

Until someone replies directly to your question it may be helpful to have a read through the Glassdoor Interview questions. Some of them are applicable to your current situation. See link below:

I did for their SG office and landed an offer but took up Mck instead. It was a lot of focus on textile, fertilizer and hi-tech/semiconductor industry. Brush up your supply chain cases, and also get ready to do some good amout of graphs/chart analysis and live math (simple stuff though). SG office seemed to be doing a lot of "back office" type cases, so it was more analytical in nature. Your experience may vary.

Thanks for your comment Hemant ! When you say "back office" type cases, what do you mean by that ? Thanks ! — Hugo on Feb 08, 2018 (edited)

Roland Berger Case: Onlinestar

Solved 29.4k times
Roland Berger Case: Onlinestar Onlinestar, an online retailer of furniture and garden products (core business), has grown significantly in recent years as a result of an expansion of its product portfolio. The company mainly imports goods from Chinese manufacturers but also operates its own production of cat lavatories (special business) in Eastern Europe. The company sells its goods via Amazon and ebay, and recently via an online shop on its website. Despite this development, the financial ratios have deteriorated in recent years. In particular, gross profit margin decreased significantly. Combined with a significant increase in shipping costs, this led to a negative result for the first time in the recently ended fiscal year and a resulting strained financial situation. Against the background of expected stagnating sales for the current financial year, short-term action is required. The board of Onlinestar asks you for an analysis of the reasons for the negative result as well as a derived recommendation for action. As a consultant, you should bring in your knowledge in online trading and develop solutions. In addition, the management board would like to receive a sales and gross profit plan from you for the current financial year.
