About This Class

This course is designed as an introduction to the infamous case interview. It is an interview process employed by many of the world's major companies, and especially those at top consulting firms like McKinsey, Bain and BCG are among the toughest interview processes in the world. These companies can be very secretive in what they expect from potential candidates, but after this course, you will gain an understanding of what you must do in order to succeed in the case interview. 

Regardless of whether you want to go into management consulting or some other avenue of the business world, knowing how to ace the case interview can be invaluable to you and your career. The tools of the consulting trade will be useful to you regardless of your profession, because they deal with fundamental issues like problem solving, structure, analysis and sound recommendation.

The lectures consist of short videos for your convenience. After the lectures, a quiz will help you revisit what you have learned, before you can start preparing for the interview itself with the potential test-examples and case samples found at the end of the course.
