Business Analyst - Case Study Guide

What is a case interview?

There are many different types of case interviews common in financial services. At Capital One, our case interviews are conversations focused on real business problems from a variety of industries.

What does a case interview assess?

Case interviews give us an opportunity to gauge how you solve problems, and give you a chance to test drive the type of work you'll be doing as an associate. We are looking for you to demonstrate:

  • Communication skills
  • Conceptual problem solving skills
  • Quantitative analytical skills

How do you prepare for a case interview?

The best way to prepare for a case interview is to practice! We've included a sample case and video to help you prepare. Candidates from all different educational and professional backgrounds can be successful with practice.

As you prepare, remember to:

  • LEARN: Get exposure to cases; while our cases are unique, the more you learn how cases work generally, the more comfortable you will be in your interview. Often university departments, business schools, and career services will have resources for case interview prep.
  • DO: Master the details by actually working through the numbers and questions in the cases you review. Do NOT memorize a list of industry terms, instead, be prepared for terms you don't know, and ask your caser about them.
  • ENGAGE: Leverage as many additional resources as you can. Attend any case workshops you are invited to, and ask your recruiter about additional case prep events or practice case opportunities.

Licheng - Career Progression

We inspire our people to grow

Licheng

Senior Business Analyst

DPhil Engineering, University of Oxford

Joined 2016

Promotion

I earned my first promotion a little over six months after joining, in July 2017.

Key Achievement

I have already had the chance to build a new response model for direct mail - it determines who will be mailed and when.

Key Achievement

My contribution to the data supplier project helped us gain a 500% increase in account booking through the direct mail channel. Direct mail remains a key part of the marketing mix for us, so this was a big responsibility so early in my career.

Standout Moment

Within the marketing and acquisition team, I participated in a major project to switch our 3rd party data supplier.

Start at Capital One

I was keen to work in a data driven, decision making role, and to live in an affordable city. The opportunity at Capital One was ideal.

Senior Software Development Engineers will be working with their agile teams to test, learn, iterate and scale up with new technologies and help influence the direction of the future.

Here’s what some of our Senior Software Development Engineers have to say:

“We’re using the latest tech, including React and Node, and are contributing to open source technologies.”

“The people at Capital One make it what it is. The buzz that constantly exists in the office is amazing.”

“I’m pushing tech boundaries here.” 

Our culture supports innovators

We offer our people the freedom to innovate, the encouragement to be individual, and opportunity to make a big impact. It’s not a coincidence we’ve been awarded Top 5 Great Place to Work in the UK for 5 years running.
