Consulting is unique in how they do interviews. Case interviews are a big part of the process – this is a way for the employer to present you with a business problem you may encounter on the job, and learn more about how you would solve the problem. On the Career Resources section of this page, we have a bunch of resources to get you started in your case prep. Once you’ve read through some materials, it’s time to get some practice with friends. Practice is the most important part of the process, and you can also sign up to do a mock case with your advisor.
On this page, we’ve compiled many resources to help you prepare for a career in consulting. Of particular interest should be our Case Interview Guide, and Management Consulted, which gives you access to 500+ cases, 10K+ case structure & math drills, 8 online video courses, and 11 industry primers.
