Case Prep Series
We are excited to announce the Case Prep Series that will be held throughout the semester! The case prep series is a group of workshops dedicated to giving the club members a multitude of resources to ace a case interview and [hopefully] receive an offer from any strategy consulting firm. The case prep series will consist of 3 workshops:
Workshop 1: Face the Case
February 13th, 6-7:30 pm
Location: MoSE G021
This workshop will be geared towards giving the participants an overview of consulting and types of cases that may be used during interviews. There will be valuable resources talked about as well as a walk-through of a case.
Workshop 2: Ace the Case
March 5th, 6-7:30 pm
Location: MoSE G021
This workshop will be geared towards practicing for cases. We will talk about how to work on cases on your own, how to breakdown and extract important details, and practice working through cases with group members.
Workshop 3: Embrace the Case
This workshop will be geared towards giving the participants an opportunity to practice mock case interviews. Two cases will be provided by the PHD2CC. This is a virtual format where we will find a case partner for you and provide two cases (you can receive one and give one) with an interview guide to practice. If you are interested in this opportunity, please sign up via the form before the deadline of April 6th. Please note that this is a member-only event.
