I got my first interview for a Financial Analyst position, what should I focus on for the interview?

I just graduated with a degree in finance and have been doing applications. I just heard back from a company, and they want to interview me about as position titled "Decision Support Analyst". I'm wanting to brush up on my financial knowledge a bit before the interview. Those of you who work or have worked in financial analysis, is there anything that I should focus on going into the interview?

What entails Decision Support Analyst's position? It does not sound like a Finance Analyst position just based off the title. You should hit up glassdoor and brush up on behavioral questions as best as you can. Don't come off rehearsed, and be very competent and amicable. Good luck!
