Hi,

Roland Berger also tends to ask more questions relating to sector or functional expertise (given that usually people need to apply to a certain practice at RB). Hence, the cases tend to be more technical and less conceptual, compared to McKinsey and BCG. However, you still need rigorous structuring and ability to hypothesize on the grounds of incomplete information.

Cheers, Sidi

1. As I recall, RB uses mainly interviewee-led cases. In London a few years ago I also recall that Market sizing was part of the first round interviews, but this may have changed.

2. At the core, the criteria that all major consultancies look for in candidates are the same. McKinsey's website has a good overview of the "what we look for" part. If you want to get a glimpse into the actual types of questions typically asked at RB interviews, Glassdoor is usually pretty accurate: https://www.glassdoor.de/Vorstellungsgespr%C3%A4ch/Roland-Berger-Fragen-im-Vorstellungsgespr%C3%A4ch-E35272.htm?countryRedirect=true

3. Have a strong answer for "why Roland Berger". Similar to above, go through glassdoor not just for insights into the types of cases that are commonly asked.
