Interviews

Our interview process involves a series of case interviews to help us get to know you better. Since each of the case interviews will entail a discussion of an actual Bain case, you will also 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 one or two rounds of interviews, each with two 60-minute case interviews. Candidates who interview in one of our Nordic offices can expect to complete both the first and second (if applicable) round of interviews in same day.

First round
You will meet with two managers or principals on your university’s campus, in one of our Nordic offices or over the phone, 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 have time at the end to ask your interviewer questions.

Second round
Those successfully passing the first round may participate in a second round of interviews, consisting of two case interviews. Interviews typically take place in one of our Nordic offices. You may meet with Bain consultants, managers, principals or partners during this final round.
