BREAK DOWN THE CASE INTERVIEW AND UNCOVER THE SECRETS TO A $100,000 OFFER

by Kim Tran, former McKinsey consultant and case interviewer

You must master the case interview to join the management consulting industry

Case interviews – essentially job interviews with business context where candidates are asked to solve a hypothetical business problem – are a signature of the consulting industry. In the recruitment process of top consulting firms, there are often 4-8 of these interviews – 4 times more than the number of interviews at most firms.

For the candidate, that means case interview prep is the single most important part of the whole study plan. Approaches differ from person to person, from website to website, but they can be summed up into 2 types: one is tips-and-techniques , the other is fundamentals-and-intuition. Both improve your performance considerably, but both have their own limitations.

The “tips-and-techniques” works well at the start…

This “tips-and-techniques” approach is basically learning interview tips and rehearsing answers. Because of the specific nature of these tips, help the candidate know when and how to apply, they tend to have effect very quickly – to the point that you can increase your case interview performance literally overnight.

The “tips-and-techniques” works well at the start

The “fundamentals” learning curve has more potential later, but takes a long time to see effects

… but the effect wears off just as quickly

Learning just the tips is scratching the surface of case interview prep – in the long run, it’s not a good alternative. You will come across cases where no off-the-shelve frameworks can apply, or questions no pre-made scripts can answer. To handle those situations, you need to learn the hard theory of case interview – which leads us to the second approach. literally overnight.

The “fundamentals-and-intuition” is great in the long run…

This route is about learning the hard principles of case interview – such as the consulting problem-solving methodology, the issue tree, the MECE concept, and the deepest roots of the frameworks, while also training to improve business intuition. Ideally, this approach equips the candidate with enough skills and knowledge to tackle any kind of case.

The “fundamentals-and-intuition” is great in the long run

The “fundamentals” learning curve has more potential later, but takes a long time to see effects

… but takes a ridiculous amount of practice

Mastering these principles could take months of intensive learning – months that might be used to quickly improve your performance with tips and techniques, months that a candidate might not have (many of my customers only look for prep materials weeks or even days before the interview – not the best approach, but it happens nonetheless). scratching the surface

The best case interview prep approach combines both elements combines both elements

I’m Kim Tran, former McKinsey consultant and founder of this platform – MConsultingPrep. I used to be in your very position – wandering around the internet, looking for people and materials that would help me get into McKinsey. Eventually I was offered the position of Business Analyst, but the prep experience was not entirely satisfactory.

It was at that time that I laid the foundations for this program – the concept of breaking down each and every step of the consulting recruitment process. When I got out of McKinsey, I offered case interview coaching sessions for a few years – and the mistakes of my interviewees during those sessions solidified the idea that a comprehensive case interview prep package must tackle both sides of the problem – the tips and techniques, as well as the fundamental theory and intuition.

Adding into the mix was something every candidate must master in case interview - Consulting math

To help candidates become both practical and intuitive, the Consulting Math Drill is a complement to smoothen your transition from good to great performance in case interviews as there's a big chunk of the case content that involves math. The package provides you a step-by-step training from easy to harder levels, which is crucial to the attainment of math skills. The order of difficulty level of our packages are as follows:

  • Mental Math Practice Tool to help improve your calculation speed and accuracy.
  • 300 short-context math questions with high appearance frequency.
  • Comprehensive chart drills to get you quickly generate insights and calculate with charts provided in actual case interviews.
  • 50 long-context math cases divided into 14 hurdles. Each case usually has 3-4 questions and requires complicated calculations to solve.
  • The ultimate Math in Case package provides you with detailed answers, including a recommended approach, formulas, explanations, and ‘next-step’ insights for actual qualitative cases.

TAIWAN

“It helps you develop a step-by-step approach to breaking down cases and ensuring that you cover all areas (in a MECE way!)… I can confidently say that I now have a level of consistency in my approach to case studies. I also understand how to be hypothesis driven, as well as use insights from data to support my conclusions. I’d give it a 5/5 rating!”

Farhan

USA

“Great visuals and commentary. I paid for the End-to-End program as I have less than 2 weeks to prepare for a case interview format. While I haven’t nailed any mock cases yet, the notion of structure, hypothesis and staying on message has resonated. The detailed feedback provided during the sample case interviews is great. Keep up the good work!”

“Hi Kim, I have followed MConsultingPrep since day 1 and was really amazed by your free content quality. This premium product didn't let me down. Your Math Drill product in the E2E package has helped me communicate my approach to Math problems better. I never thought I can get the offer from McKinsey without investing much in prep's product.”

Agust Muller

GERMANY

“I know this website from their Youtube videos on market-sizing questions, and the blog content are much more insightful and relatable than I expected. Also the end-to-end in the package are a game changer, since they helped me land an offer with Bain and a boutique firm in Spain. My approach to casing and problem solving has completely improved ever since.”

Julian Martin

SPAIN

“The E2E package was particularly of great help to me because I cae from a non-business background. The "Everyone can make it to consulting" message from Kim really resonates with me and I was not let down. I felt like the E2E content can be consumed by anyone since it is all structured and detailed, very suitablefor self-paced learning and growth.”

Christ Goldberg

UKRAINE

“I followed the steps in the guidebook and was strict with myself to answer the practice questions as in a real case interview. The improvement was fast and I got a lot more confident prior to my official interviews with BCG, which helped boost my performance a lot!”

Takayo Kishimoto

JAPAN

“I did not have much time preparing for the case interviews so I relied on MConsultingPrep Youtube videos and blog posts since day 1.
