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
