Thanks. Any tips as an interviewer of mck?

As someone who just did this move, you absolutely still have to study a lot. I found the brainstorming to be a bit easier though, and the phrasing is a bit more natural since you learn how to “speak business” a lot better

What specific tech skills are MBB looking for that they would be willing to offer flexibility on starting level. Again this is for the consulting not expert tracks at MBB. Many thanks in advance!
