1. Management Consulting, Finance, and other industries using case interviews typically include business case or word problem questions.
2. Always explain your rationale behind response to questions in order to show employers that you have a grasp on business strategy in problem solving.
3. Seemingly “ridiculous” questions may be testing your ability to analyze and reason through a situation/problem.
4. Quantitative questions may be asked during interviews such as calculating yield to maturity, WACC, or even basic mathematical inquiries. The point is to see how you approach answering these types of questions. Showing your analytical reasoning skills can be helpful.
5. Some companies use a Super Day interview format
6. For an upper level finance position, additional questions may focus on business strategy or philosophy.
