Case Interviews are a primary interview technique used by consulting firms, as well as private equity, tech, healthcare, and a variety of other industries. With internships and full-time recruiting ramping up, you can’t delay in your preparation. No matter where you interview, you'll want to be case interview ready!

Amherst College's Loeb Center has hired Management Consulted to host a 5-hour intensive consulting interview workshop. During this fast-paced, virtual workshop, participants will be challenged to think beyond simple frameworks, participate often, and learn to handle a variety of analytical problems. This workshop will enhance your ability to:

--Understand the case overview & structures: It’s one thing to “solve a case.” But can you do it in a way that drives to the heart of the business problem; makes clear, ranked recommendations; and convinces key stakeholders to accept your recommendation?
--Handle market sizing questions
--Practice mental/Case Math: You’ll learn to do a deep dive into case math, including (1) charts, graphs, and exhibits and (2) drawing level 1 and level 2 insights from the numbers.
--Go through a case & create structures: It is to enough to regurgitate frameworks you memorized from a book. An “A” candidate blends frameworks to best solve the business problem that is being asked. You’ll learn to break down level 1 vs. level 2 case structures and START STRONG.
--Create an ultimate case practice plan
