Case Interview Workshop

Bain & Company

February 4, 2013 - 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm (already occurred)

This workshop is designed to help students prepare for case interviews.

What is a case interview?

The case interview is an example of a real business problem typical of the kind our case teams work to resolve every day. For this reason, our interviewers prepare their interviews based on real cases and tend not to rely on brainteasers or theoretical problems. Cases involve qualitative and quantitative questions as well as real-world business situations. We do not strive to test you on business terms and expressions, current events or strategic "frameworks."

Instead, we evaluate you based on your ability to think about and structure an approach to solving a business problem, not on whether you get the "right" answer. A good case interview should be fun and thought-provoking.

The case interview is only one dimension of the recruiting process, but it is typically the part that raises the most anxiety. We hope the information in this section will help you to prepare for the experience so that you can be confident and enjoy the interview.
