This course is a bundle containing both the McKinsey Case Interview Training Programme and the BCG & Bain Case Interview Training Programme. You should purchase it if you are preparing for all firms and are not sure with which ones you will be interviewing with yet.
1. Brush up your maths
The first step of your preparation should be to brush up your maths. Every case interview involves mental calculations. These calculations are not necessarily hard, but what is difficult is to do them quickly and accurately. This training programme contains videos and exercises to refresh your memory on basic mental operations and teach you more advanced maths shortcuts useful in consulting interviews.
2. Learn how to consistently crack the case
The second step of the programme is to teach you how to consistently crack cases. Over the past few years we have analysed 100s of case interviews and come the conclusion that they can ALL be broken down into SEVEN types of questions (Situation, Framework, Quantitative, Creativity, etc.)
The cornerstone of the programme is the IGotAnOffer Method which teaches you a step-by-step method to consistently crack each of these 7 types of questions. This method is extremely intuitive and easy to apply. And you will learn how to use it both interviewer-led cases (McKinsey) and candidate-led cases (BCG, Bain, and other top firms).
3. Watch a best-in-class candidate solving cases
Once you have learned the IGotAnOffer method, you can then watch a best-in class candidate apply the method by solving 12 live cases. The live case videos are structured so that you can hit pause and answer the interviewer's question as if you were in a real interview.
Watching a best-in-class candidate will help you master the IGotAnOffer method and learn the small details that make a difference between candidates who get an offer at McKinsey, BCG and Bain, and those who don't. At each key moment in the live case, we explain with extreme clarity WHY the answer provided by the candidate is great and how you can replicate their example.
4. Work on your weaknesses with detailed PDFs
When you watch the best-in-class candidate, you will quickly identify areas in case interviews where you struggle more than others. For instance, a lot of candidates who train with us struggle a little bit with framework and quantitative questions at first. This is why we have created detailed PDFs key areas of the case so that you can train on these specific types of questions.
ALL the cases and questions in this programme are from actual past interviews at McKinsey, BCG and Bain. You will therefore be training with questions that are exactly similar to those you will get in your interviews.
5. Impress your interviewer on Fit / PEI questions
At the beginning of each of your interviews, you will spend 10 minutes discussing an aspect of your CV with your interviewer. You will get some questions which are fairly generic such as "Why consulting?" or "Why firm X?" and relatively straight forward to answer.
Both some other questions are much more difficult to tackle. These are called Personal Experience Interviews (PEI) questions and are used both McKinsey as well as other firms. The programme includes a 1h training video to make sure you impress your interviewer when you answer PEI questions. It both covers the main type of PEI questions and how to answer them effectively. Excelling at PEI questions is a great way to set yourself apart.
6. Practice mock interviews with peers
Finally, by signing up to this course you’ll get access to our Peers case interview group which lets you practice mock interviews with other users. You’ll be able to browse profiles, select a relevant partner, and schedule a 90mins session to interview each other over video (2 x 45mins). In each session, you’ll be the interviewer for 45mins, and the interviewee for 45mins.
Practicing interviews with peers is a great way to boost your confidence, gain experience solving cases, and learn new tactics by watching your peers answer questions.
Two benefits you won't find anywhere else
This course comes with on demand support from ex-interviewers and a 50% money back guarantee if you don't get an offer. To the best of our knowledge we're the only ones to offer that kind of support and guarantee for case interview preparation.
On-demand support from ex-interviewers
Stuck on a specific case interview? Need help to answer quantitative questions faster? Our dedicated support team of experienced interviewers is at your disposal to help you fine-tune your preparation. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions on case interviews. We typically reply to emails under 24h but it can sometimes take us up to 48h during busy periods of the year.
Money back guarantee if you do not succeed
If you don't get an offer, all you need to do is to upload the rejection email you received in this short refund application form. Our team will refund 50% of the course cost, and 50% of the first coaching hour cost. We don’t cover additional coaching hours because it’s not financially sustainable for us to do so.
To be eligible for that guarantee you need to actually interview. This guarantee does not cover cases where you are not invited to interview, or if you decide to cancel your application.
This guarantee applies to McKinsey, Capital One, and Linkedin, all of which use the interviewer-led interview format. The guarantee also applies to the following firms which use the candidate-led interview format: BCG, Bain, Deloitte, Accenture, EY-Parthenon, KPMG, PWC, Strategy&, Oliver Wyman, ZS Associates, LEK, A.T Kearney, Alix Partners, and Roland Berger. If the firm where you plan to apply does not appear on this list, feel free to contact our team and ask for a money back guarantee extension prior to making your purchase, and we may be able to help.
* How do you estimate your 80% success rate?
Here is how we calculate our success rate. Candidates who train with us get part of their money back if they do not get a job in consulting. We assume that candidates who do not claim back this amount got a job in consulting. The figure quoted is simply calculated based on all candidates who trained with us since we launched this programme at the beginning of 2016 and is updated regularly. Historically the guided success rate has always been slightly higher than the self-study rate.
Does this programme work for Experienced Hires?
Yes it does. In fact, about 50% of the candidates we work with are actually Experienced Hires and the other half are University graduates. And yes, we estimate that our success rate is similar for both groups (~80%).
This is because the core skills tested in consulting interviews (i.e. problem solving, leadership, etc.) are the same for graduates and experienced hires. The main difference is that the more experience you have, the higher the "bar" will be in your interviews.
Can I upgrade if I start with the Course only option?
Yes you can upgrade at any time. You simply need to purchase coaching sessions at the following link. The total price you pay will be the same.
