looking for solid case partners, preferably face-to-face in Zurich

Hey guys,

Any one got experiences with the written + presentation case with Roland Berger? I will have this assessment for Roland Berger at the Swiss office. I will receive some slides and 60 min preparation. 30 min presentation and 30 min Q&A with a partner + principle.

I have no idea how to prepare... Any one can help?

Very appreciate it!! Thank you in advance!

Yue

Hi,

Here I've uploaded some written case samples (PM me for a password):

The best way to prepare is the following:

  1. Check if the calculator is allowed. So far it was. If not - you have to train mental math. I posted the main tips here: https://www.preplounge.com/en/consulting-forum/tips-to-do-big-multiplications-in-my-mind-726#a1422
  2. Prepare for a regular case interview - it helps a lot. Basically, prep lounge website is about it
  3. Practice reading cases fast and prioritizing the information. I found useful two sources:
  • Written cases you'll be able to find in google or in case books. I've seen a couple in "Vault Guide to the Case Interview" and "Insead Business Admission Test"
  • Harvard cases - either buy or try to find online. You can find a couple of MIT cases here for free: https://mitsloan.mit.edu/LearningEdge/Pages/Case-Studies.aspx Unfortunately free cases don't have the prep questions.

Good luck!
