Want to Prepare for a Consulting Case Interview? Visit Bain & Company’s Website!

Looking for additional Consulting Case Interview practice?  Head to Bain & Company’s website to work through one of their practice cases.  You will be able to review the client background (I reviewed a case where you have a friend looking to open a coffee shop), think about & review a framework that will help setup the case, complete analysis (Ex. Determining market size) and finally see both a good and a better final recommendation.  Compared to the BCG case library example that I highlighted a few weeks back, this case was shorter and less interactive, but it still allows opportunity for a motivated student to pause and try to work through the case individually.  I also liked how Bain & Company showed the steps in their calculations, rather than just the correct answer.  In closing, this is another good practice tool / resource for students looking to enhance their case interview expertise.
