Bain Ibérica's interviews are designed to assess your skills in situations that are similar to Bain case assignments. Since each case interview will entail a discussion of an actual Bain case, so you will gain some insights into what it is like to work at Bain. We encourage you to prepare for your case interviews.

Successful candidates will participate in two rounds of interviews; each round will have two 45 minute case interviews.

First round
You will meet with two Bain managers or partners if you are invited to interview with Bain.

The bulk of the first round of interviews will revolve around the discussion of Bain cases. Your interviewer will present a short business problem and then ask you to structure the problem and recommend a practical solution.

Your interview may kick off with an opportunity to share your achievements and future goals. You should also have time at the end to ask your interviewer questions.

Second round
Those successfully passing the first round will participate in a second round of interviews. You will meet with Bain principals or partners during this final round.
