Hardest Technicals [Diversity]?
Curent diversity student looking to pursue an investment banking summer internship for next summer (2024). What are the hardest questions I'll be asked. Struggling to get through accounting right now so Im nervous what else some of the elite boutiques will ask. Any diversity kids lend a helping hand and share some hard questions? Really interested in restructuring by the way. Thanks

"What is a bank?"
That's a tough one... go easy on the newbie
Heard they might even ask what is the name of their bank
Top EB's will ask candidates the same thing - they don't go easy on diversity. Know the guides inside out like everyone else. Good luck!
Know this is cap for a fact
which go easy? asking for a friend...
Current An2 at a "top EB" and this is not true at my bank, at least in pre- superday interviews . I interviewed candidates last year in pre-superday rounds, and I was given a separate question list for the diversity pipeline vs. normal pipeline that was noticeably easier
Isn't that low key racist? 'Don't ask the diverse kids the harder set of questions…'
Bro just grind the technicals from people stating the same shit on here thousands of times. Stop putting diversity excuses and simply study the material, not that hard.
If you start to get a sense that the questions are too hard, double check with the interviewer to make sure they have the diversity questions
Funny but this isn't a lie
If they ask you any technicals beyond "tell me about yourself" threaten to report them to HR for discrimination. Good luck!
Wut is cash
You will not get an offer if your technicals aren't solid.
And let's say you do, you won't survive your summer stint. I can promise you that.
Nah they'll get an offer
Prepare as if you aren't diversity, then you will either 1) be prepared for normal questions or 2) be able to slam dunk " what is COGS ?"
Oh fuck there's a technical screen just for diversity candidates? Shit I've been giving the same technicals for everyone. Will i be fired now?
400 IB Interview Questions guide is the best resource. All the technical questions I got were covered in there. Expect basic accounting and valuation . From my experience, EB interviews are much more technical.
Poor baiting troll post, try again harder next time
Lmao. Good troll recognition, but why are you blatantly ignoring the fact that many people above fell for the bait?
Ngl you had me up until "really interested in restructuring btw". No one who's still struggling with accounting would even know what that is...
Not diversity, but expect standard technical and behavioral questions .
Not all banks go easy on diversity hires - better to over prepare than underperform.
In the end, you're all doing the same job, so demonstrate the confidence, capability, knowledge, and intellectual curiosity that they want to see from applicants.
Are u jealous of my "VP relationship" post and start posting trolling things?
You trolls are seriously crazy 😂.
You guys are not doing this community any good on a serious note
My bank isn't allowed to ask diversity candidates technicals in interviews.
Bro what bank
Mostly LBO and Acc/Dil questions
I interviewed diversity and not diversity. I got asked the same type of questions in both. Really no difference.
You should reexamine your motivations for entering into investment banking if you're struggling with accounting. You do realize that the companies that end up in restructuring typically get there because of one of a basket of only very few reasons, none of which are friendly to an analyst who's struggling to get through accounting, right?
If you're still keen on IB for whatever reason and want to extend your career longevity, perhaps investment grade DCM is the way to go (or, when IPO markets come back, ECM ). Significantly less analysis and accounting related work there.
