I have been invited for a third and final round for the entry-level position at Roland Berger Middle East (Saudi Arabia).
I heard from a colleague of mine that the partner interview did not include regular case. However, the partner started an open discussion and he wants to assess the candidate thinking style and they he/she strcutre the answer. My colleague did the interview one week before me with another partner and he did not make it. They said to him that they liked his motivation however he failedto structure this final round open conversation :( Thus, wanted your help in two things:
1- Has anyone of you know what is usually the style of the final round and RB in MENA for the BA level?
2- How can I prepare for such an open discussion and try to make sure that I am structuring my ideas quickly and effectively.
Would highly appreciate your information and recommendations!
FYI, my first round was a regular market size. The second round was an unusual case (imagination I will call it). Both interviews were started with 10-15 min FIT and followed by 35-40 min case.
