Case interviews are two-way conversations that demonstrate the ability to think creatively in unfamiliar businesses. Your interviewer will describe a strategic or operational challenge and you’ll have to reach defensible conclusions in a short period of time. While these skills are common to successful consultants, they are important tools for other areas as well.
