Our case study interview approach

1

Remember there is no single right answer to any case – what is important is that you walk your interviewer through your logic and provide a defendable conclusion

2

Listen to the interviewer and ask clarifying questions to understand what is actually expected from the case.

3

Don’t panic if the case is from an unfamiliar industry. We’re looking at problem solving skills and how you tackle the issue at hand. Conversely, if it is from an industry you know, be careful not to make implicit assumptions.

4

Begin the process by setting a structure for how you are going to approach the problem. Don’t feel obliged to use a standard framework because it may limit your thinking and hence the quality of your final solution.

5

Ask the interviewer follow-up questions if you feel those will help you give a better answer

6

Work through the case logically and follow the structure you selected to use. Draw clear conclusions from your analysis so that your reasoning is easy to follow. Also, conduct your analysis out loud; otherwise we might not see the whole process behind your reasoning.

7

Make quick and accurate calculations where necessary. Quite often we will include numbers in our cases to see if you can prioritize issues and understand their quantitative impacts.

8

Listen to any tips your interviewer may give, they are there to help you crack the case.

9

Use business judgment and common sense when solving a case to prove your hypotheses and ensure that solutions are realistic.

10

Remember to include an actionable final solution along with recommendations that answers the original problem that was presented.

Examples of a typical case study

Our interview process typically consists of four interview rounds. Each round will include a general discussion to learn more about each other and a case interview.

Magenta_Career_1_MarketSizing

Typically asked in the first interview round with the aim to dive into a candidates’ general problem solving and logical structuring skills.

Example: Estimate the number of Nokia Lumia phones to be sold in 2012 in Finland to consumers

Hints: Use the Finnish population and estimate the frequency of times consumers on average upgrade their phones. This will give you an approximate number of mobile phones sold annually. You might also want to make a quick breakdown of the population by age groups to see if whether usage differences exist within different age groups. Then estimate the percentage smartphone sales and what market share Nokia Lumia has in the smartphone segment.

Magenta_Career_2_BottomLine

Typically asked in the second interview round with aims to further test logical structuring skills and basic business understanding.

Example: Company X, operating in the sports retailing industry, has seen its profits dwindle. Why is this and what can the company do about it?

Hints: First outline what components affect profits. List how revenues are derived for the company and in return how costs are incurred. You might want to use a common income statement breakdown to structure various types of costs. Now go back and discuss what the company is able to impact and how to come up with your solution to what the company should do.

Magenta_Career_3_Strategy

Typically asked in the last interview round with an aim of understanding how the candidate is able to take an umbrella view on any given business problem.

Example: A Finnish apparel manufacturer is considering opening an online store. Should they do this: why or why not?

Hints: What are the different factors that will affect the decision and what are their current statuses? Select a strategy framework, which will help you structure your discussion. Using your framework outline the elements impacting such a decision. Make sure to give a summary and conclude your answer.
