What kind of cases does Accenture Strategy typically gives?

Anonymous A

Hi,

I'm invited to an interview with Accenture Strategy (France). I was wondering what kind of cases to except. If relevant, I know that my interviewer has previously worked mainly on pricing engagements.

I know that Accenture is a big firm, and that it might be hard to predict what to expect, yet help is more than welcome!

Hi,

At accenture I've seen 2 types of interviews:

1) Case interview with the manager

  • No clear guidelines for cases, so the case depends on the manager
  • 60% chance that it will be marketsizing
  • 40% chance - profitability and general frameworks
  • Interviewers are less demanding than at Big3. unless you meet an ex-big3 consultant as an interviewer

2) Assessment center

  • You will be in a group of 6-10 other candidates
  • You'll have a case (general business problem though with various aspects to look at, i.e. marketing, supply chain, finance)
  • The main goal is to discuss the case together and come to a collaborative solution
  • You will also have a couple of written cases (Marketsizing only) after the main task

Good luck!
