What the Heck Is A Case?
Let's start with a simple definition. The case interview is essentially a word problem based upon a real life (or simulated) consulting situation. Cases come in all shapes and sizes, from the simple, straightforward question designed to see how you think about a problem, to the highly complex business strategy issue that takes twenty minutes to explain and involves graphs and charts and buzzwords up the wazoo. However, they all have one thing in common. (No, it's not to inspire fear in the hearts and minds of would-be consultants!) The consulting firms tell us that the case interview is an excellent way to test a candidate's analytical abilities, his or her resourcefulness and way of thinking about problems, and, ultimately, his or her aptitude for consulting.
