Initial interview consists of a simple phone interview with one of the team members.

Asks to run through your resume, then they talk about what goes on in the firm.Then there is a writing/Excel section where you basically fill out an income statement and write a blind executive summary.

First step was an initial phone call with the basic "walk me through your resume" question. Two other questions were "Walk me through an income statement" and "Tell me about a recent M&A deal."

Second was an in-person interview located at the office. In consisted of one-on-one interviews. All behavioral questions with no technicals. The last portion was a writing test, where you were given one hour to complete a one-page teaser based off a CIM.

A day after completion of the in-person interview, I was given the offer.

Straightforward interview. Know why you want to do IB and genuine interest, in addition to basic business writing skills.

You begin with sales or revenue, then subtract COGS to get gross profit. Then subtract SG&A to get operating income, or earnings before interest and taxes. After subtracting interest, subtract taxes which will get you to net income.
Tell me about a recent M&A deal.

I can't remember what I said, but just choose any recent deal in the news and describe the parties involved and basic rationale for the transaction.
