Case interview preparation
To help candidates prepare for the case study interview, we introduce two example cases that have previously been used in our recruitment interviews.
Our first case, "Scandinavian Sandwiches", is a typical first round case that is used to assess the candidate's ability to identify key parameters for market sizing, quantify information based on given assumptions, and form hypotheses based on financial data.
Our second case, "Ferris Wheel", is a more advanced investment calculation assignment typically used in later interview rounds. Specifically, the case is used to evaluate the aptitude for breaking larger issues into manageable entities and forming financially sound recommendations based on fact-based analysis.
Both cases are divided into easy-to-follow steps with clear instructions presented below. Please click on the (+) sign for case parameter data or model answers for each step. Our real-life case interviews follow a similar format of breaking down each case into approximately three to five steps.
