Case Study Interview Practice for PhDs

Case study interviewing is a key component of the hiring process for management consultants, requiring candidates to think like a consultant to solve business problems. Consulting companies typically begin their hiring process early in the fall, and successful candidates will need to demonstrate their mastery of the case interview process.

For many PhD's, case interviewing is a very new process. Fortunately, it is something that can be improved upon with practice. The Career Center is organizing small groups of graduate students interested in actively practicing case study interviewing this summer, in preparation for the fall recruiting season. These groups are for students who will be finishing their degrees this next year and will be actively pursuing employment with management consulting companies.

If you are interested in joining a case interview practice group, please contact Tom Lehker at tlehker@umich.edu.
