Dear all, 

I recently got invited to an interview at Roland Berger in Germany. I really want to prepare for the interview in the best way possible, since for me this is a huge opportunity and I'd love to work for RB.
Unfortunately, I don't know any (former) RB consultants personally, who I could ask the more "insider-ish" questions. Some of these questions would be: 

  - What are possible tricky personal fit questions?
  - What do the cases look like? 
  - Are there specific industries, which I should focus on? What Industries is RB focused on specifically?
  - How to prepare for the RB cases? (Books, Courses, etc.) 

I am very thankful for any advice! Looking forward for your answers! 🙂

In my experience,

 

1. Personal fit questions will mostly focus on why exactly do you want to join RB (it is good to emphasize their entrepreneurial culture + their European heritage which they are proud of)

2. Cases look like most other cases at other firms BUT might be a bit more technical/mathematical at times

3. RB does full blown strategy consulting, so you can basically work on any industry there. What they are strong at is Restructuring/M&A, Automotive, Public (for government in Germany,etc.)...

4. Best to prepare by doing as many cases as possible with as skilled teachers as possible!
