Hi,

Could anyone advise/opine on the extent to which the interview process for strategy consultanting focuses on the financial aspects? Obviously you have to know your stuff, but I get the impression that knowing Grant, Porter, etc is secondary to being able to calcualte NPV, interpret accounts and generally number crunch...

Thoughts?

Thanks.

Guess it depends on what level you're trying to enter - I interviewed with five relatively big name firms in London, did well, and know absolutely nothing about accounts and NPV - some intuitions at best. This was for associate/junior consultant roles with R. Berger, PwC, Marakon, etc. Common sense and business awareness with a bit of structured thinking seemed much more important. Was happy I'd practiced case studies, though. Suspect if you're post-MBA it's a different story? Best of luck!
