Case Study Interview HR Interview Partner Round
Round 1

Case Study Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: The client wants to enter a new market. Please help him evaluate whether he should or should not. What is the market entry strategy?
Interview Experience
So, like a normal Market Entry Case interview, I asked the basic qualifying questions to understand the client, industry etc. After structuring the case, I understood more about competition. Then we understood that the potential was there but Supply chain models needed to be looked into.
Interview Tips
Read about structures. Practice cases with peers. Case study interviews are about confidence, practice and understanding how to structure a problem. That's what the interviewer is looking for.

Also, prepare a list of HR answers in advance. That is a must do!
Round 3

Partner Round

Interview Experience
It involves an interview with a Partner of the firm. It is a culture fit interview. I was asked to estimate number of cigarettes sold in India in a year, which a classic guesstimate.
Also, I was asked GK questions. Wherever I didn't know, I confessed honestly.
By the end, we both were having more of a conversation than an interview

Partner is there to see if you will fit well with the organization. Act yourself, make the person feel comfortable. Have a good conversation.
