Hey guys,

I have received an interview call from Strategy& Dubai office and wanted some insights about the interviews and the office. They told me there will be 3 45-minutes back to back interviews.

It would be great if you can help me!

Thank you!

Hi,

The interviews are pretty standard and similar to any other consulting company:

  1. Fit part
  2. Case (20-25 min)
  3. Your questions to the interviewer

Fit part usually includes the questions like "Why Consulting", "Why Company", Various stories about yourself (Leadership, Teamwork, Achievements - these are not very standardized)

Cases are a bit less demanding than MBB cases. Mostly standard cases like Market sizing, Profitability, Market Entry, Launching a new product, Acquiring a company, etc

Your questions to the interviewer - try to prepare interesting questions in advance

Hello!

Nothing special, traditional MBB structure: (1) FIT, (2) Business Case and (3) some minutes for your question for the interviwer.

Regarding what´s special with the office for it´s location, mainly the kind of projects -more Public Sector than in other offices- and big clients in an "early" stage (maning that they are not historical clients that have been always working with consultants, that you find everywhere in the old european/american offices)

Hope it helps!

Cheers,

Clara

Hello,

Strategy& follow a standard format for the interviews. You will have :

  • 5-10 minutes of introduction and fit interview
  • 25-30 minutes of business case
  • 5-10 minutes of questions to your interviewer

Feel free to contact me for any further information, I had the interviews with the italian office of Strategy& and with another Dubai office.

Best,
Luca

Hi,
the interview will be structured in 3 parts:
- Personal Experience Interview: fit and CV questions to assess your personal impact, leadership skills, and entrepreneurial spirit
- Case Interview: typical business case to evaluate your structure in approaching problems, problem-solving skills, and business sense
- Your final questions to the interviewers

Hope it helps,
Antonello
