    MBA Interview
    1st Round: 2 interviews; both structured as Personal Experience Interview and a business case.

    Final Round: 3 interviews; same structure

    Overall, interviewers (a combination of recruiters, consultants, and partners) were friendly and straightforward.

    Interview

    Pretty clear case and PEI interview combination. Had to talk in depth about personal experience and do some case math. Cases ranged from mining to retail to banking, but overall not too bad.

    First round had two back-to-back 1h interviews and final round had three. Each interview consists of a 15min personal experience interview and 30min case interview.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at McKinsey & Company (New York, NY (US)) in August 2020.

    Interview

    Final round mostly about PEI, though there were 5 cases total in the entire 2 rounds of interviews. Important to be very solid on the math but not fast. Better in second round because interview with home office.
