Business topids - think sbox, the enron trial(& implications), overhyped bird flu that kinda thing. They wont give two hoots about IB stuff unless you're applying to CF.
As for the 'lacking in professionalism compared to IB' - it's kinda like comparing chalk and cheese. That, and for a first round interview, the interviewers might only be 4 years older than you. I'd say that's a positive thing. It shows that you could be making pretty important yes/no decisons in 3 years...which means more to me than being interviewed by some head up arse senior management stiff... but each to their own.
And as they're just ticking boxes about you (despite how important it is to you!), it's also an afternnon off work for them. I know i'd treat i as such...
