Italians do it better (the MBA)

Tuesday, January 17, 2006


Today and yesterday was time for consulting interviews. I've got 4 interviews, 2 with Boston Consulting and 2 with Value Partners. With VP was very funny the fact that one of the interviewer was following a wine tasting course with me in 2001 in Milan and we started talking about this commong experience. Both the iterviewers were very cool.. very informal but at the same time very professional. I hope i can get a second round and a job offer even if to be honest during the second case i was a little in panic. Usually, during a case interview they ask you why this, why that, why IESE and so on and then they ask you to analyze a situation. My questions were something like "what is the sum of numbers from 1 to 1000", and "how much will u offer me for a taxi licence in Milan" and.. "i'm a steel producer in West Europe, should i fear the threat of the Chinese producers?". Since now i've only the answer from BCG which said that i'm admitted to a second round in Milan. So, around the 6th i'll be in Milan but i don't know if i will be able to stay a whole weekend or just the day of the interview. Now i'll have to solve a case called "Topesa" which for the italians sounds quite interesting.
