    Interview

    Interviews at BCG are mostly case study based. Lateral hires can also expect one or two interviews with senior partners that are more geared toward assessing fit with the company and its culture. Case studies are classic business problem case studies, i.e., no puzzles or brain teasers. Candidates should expect four to five rounds of interviews. Decisions are typically made and communicated within a week or two of the final interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Candidates familiar with case study interviews should find the overall process similar to that at other leading management consultancies.   Answer Question
