Bain & Company | MBA | Real Case Simulation


really depend on the circumstances the question is asked:

- MBB Interview: I think you should explain your ambition to be part of this specific firm by reading the main values of this company, for instance in Bain you could aspire to become a Mentor for future generations in order to give back the advices and help you received by other Bainees (one of the Bain value is the strong cooperation among employees)

- MBA Interview: It is very important to demostrate that you have a clear idea on what you wanna do next the MBA. For instance specify what industry, company and role in order to tangible contribute to the MBA community and of course its ranking.

I expect to enter into a very ambitious firm, where the people are driven by their work and aims for the best possible results. I expect to have a very high learning curve and to get constructive feedback on my work. I further expect to sometimes be on deep water and learning how to swim. Another one of my exceptations is to travel with the job and getting new aqcuaintances.
