ABOUT ME

  • +2.5 years in consulting with McKinsey and Company
  • +1.5 year launching Amazon Business in Spain
  • Part of the recruiting team in both firms, having conduced and shadowed dozens of interviews. 
  • Professor at the Master in Management in the business institution Instituto de Empresa in Madrid, where I received the award for the best-rated professor of the year by the MiM students. 
  • Fully sponsored for MBA at MIT Sloan of Management
  • Experienced professor and coach, author of numerous preparation materials for the Master in Management and several consulting-prep pages. 

MY INTERVIEW PREPARTION FORMAT

Having received offers from McKinsey & Amazon (top employer from MBAs), plus having extense experience in interviewing myself, it became crystal clear to me that traditional frameworks don´t work! Consultancy and strategy is about thinking out-of-the-box and finding creative solutions to complex matters. 

Precisely for this, as professor in the Masters and as a coach, I prepare candidates to leave behind traditional frameworks and develop a creative, critical and holistic approach to master all types of cases. The well-known frameworks you find in case literature are a basic toolbox for solving certain types of problems, but they don´t teach you how to (1) approach a case, (2) draft a roadmap and (3) solve it. Hence, teaching how to approach ANY type of business problem with a holistic approach rather than "frameworks" is the philosophy of my sessions and key for their success. 

I am the author of my preparing materials, such as Preplounge´s FIT Guide (https://www.preplounge.com/en/shop/tests-2/integrated-fit-guide-for-mbb-34)  thought for ad-hoc sessions or as a part of a full coaching plan. Number of sessions can be tailored to your needs, contact me for creating a tailored plan!
