Case Interview Workshops

Unlimited-size classes (varying from 90 minutes to 2 hours, 3 hours, or a full day)

Case Questions founder Marc Cosentino demystifies all aspects of the case interview process by sharing the road-tested system that equips you to approach, analyze, and address the most sophisticated cases systematically and effectively. Students learn through a combination of lectures and video exercises. 

In the extended versions of the workshop, Marc provides live coaching while students “get their feet wet” by doing their first case in a controlled, supportive environment. 

On-Campus workshops starting at $4,000. Zoom workshops $3,500.

Mock Case Interviews

1:1 or small groups (60 minutes)

  • New to case interviews? Marc walks you through a case structure while you generate analyses, share ideas, and run through the math. Small groups work though a case together.
  • Have you done some cases? Marc provides coaching as you move through the case.
  • Are you ready to interview tomorrow? Marc runs through a case as an actual interviewer (no helpful hints!).

You’ll get feedback on your strengths and gaps plus a case review sheet with a game plan to improve your performance.

On-Campus, individual and small groups, contact Marc for more details. Individual via Zoom $200 an hour.

Case Competition Workshops

Create winning presentations for competitions and job offers (90 minutes or a full day)

In the 90-minute format, Marc shares strategies and competition-winning insights.

In the full-day format, case competition guru Kara Kravetz Cupoli PhD assigns you a case in advance. You bring your 10- to 15-minute PowerPoint analysis to this all-day training. The morning session features competition strategy plus time to update your draft. In the afternoon, you are assigned a team at random; you then deliver a 15-minute presentation to faculty/staff volunteers who participate in 10 minutes of Q&A. Kara, plus your peers, evaluate each presenting team.

For Public-Sector Candidates

Case Interview Workshop – Government and Nonprofit Organizations

(half-day)

Public-sector industries face unique challenges, stakeholders, and opportunities. Outside of this workshop, there are few places where consolidated resources exist or where best practices are shared. You’ll walk away with an insider’s understanding from Evan Piekara a consultant who has been on both sides of the case interview table. Evan teaches you how to approach, analyze, and address the most sophisticated cases. From understanding the public sector ecosystem to preparing for interviews, from learning about the top frameworks as well as the best resources to guide your career going forward, you can use this workshop to hit the ground running. You can also set yourself apart from countless others applying to Big 4, mid-market, and boutique firms.

On-Campus Workshops starting at $4,000. Zoom workshops $3,500.

For Career Services Professionals

Train-the-Trainer

How to give a case and write a case interview (90 minutes to 3 hours)

Marc teaches you how to give a case interview with confidence, providing substantial feedback and “next steps” for success along the way. You get handouts to review with students to ensure they are covering key elements in answering a case. You get structures for the four most popular cases. Plus, you get two “ready-to-give” unpublished cases. 

In the extended format, you learn to write your own case – because the best way to learn how to give a case is to write one. Not only will you own your case, you will know all the possible solutions. Your confidence will increase when giving students cases, and you will deliver more realistic experiences to others as you go. 

On-Campus workshops starting at $4,000. Zoom workshops $3,500.
