Step 4: Technical Case Study Telephone Interview

We will ask you about your motivation for the Programme and the distinct capability, assess your current knowledge and ask you to work through a real business case study.

Top application and interview tips from our FLPsŽ:

"IŽd recommend (beyond the basic pre-application research for any potential job) that you dig deep into our core values and understand what they mean, and how they could be implemented. For the interviews/case studies this was invaluable."

Victor Berrizbeitia, Marketing Co-ordinator, Chicago
"Devote a lot of time to learning the techniques for dealing with case studies, find people to run through case studies with you and use case study websites."

Pius Enigheno, Projects Engineer, UK
"My tip would be to familiarize yourself with the HireVue video interview process as much as possible, and really try to avoid letting the format throw you off."

James Kruse, Strategy Coordinator, Chicago
"For the first step in the interview it is very good to have a convincing answer to the following three questions: (1) Why BP? (I echo the comments on our core company values, make sure you know them and are able to give examples how your own behaviour fits with them) (2) Why the MBA (or other relevant qualification) and how it shaped my perspective on what I want to achieve in the long-term (3) Why are BP and I a good match?"

Sabrina Armgart, Strategy & Marketing Advisor, Germany
