Application Details

The process took a day - interviewed at Oliver Wyman in August 2010.

Interview Details

Questions were case interviews like any other consulting interview, however they were more oriented towards cases involving currency and investors. One interviewer attempted to guide me to his line of thinking, but his way of doing so was lazy and consequently confused me as to his intentions.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Oliver Wyman.

    Interview Details

    First round interview was held on campus - was largely based around previous work experience, relevance and a general understanding of what the role entailed. No case in first round but did as a brain teaser.

    Second an final round was a super day in NY with other Ivy league schools. Consisted of a presentation to two partners, a case study and a one on one interview with an Associate.
