Program Description

Enventure’s Case Interview Workshops is a fundamentals training and peer-to-peer mentoring program for aspiring consultants to practice case interview questions in a supportive space. Consulting is a dynamic career option for curious problem solvers, which allows for team-driven solutions to a variety of real-world business problems. Consulting isn’t just restricted to individuals pursuing a business degree, but the advanced analytical skills obtained during a PhD, MD, or JD lend themselves well to the demands of the job. This career option allows for a variety of different specializations within the field and also provides solid avenues into biotech and pharmaceutical research. However, just as with any skill, repeated practice with hands-on problems is key to becoming a true expert. Case Interview Workshops support the acquisition of directed skillsets, methodologies and approaches commonly used in consulting in general and especially in case interviews which are essential in the recruitment process, thereby supporting the personal development of individuals interested in a consulting career and beyond. 

Join us Monday evenings 6:30-8:30 pm starting January 11th as we kick off this semester with a series of informative (and interactive) sessions. Weeks 1-7 will be formalized training on general business concepts, case interview anatomy and commonly used frameworks.

Whether you’re experienced within the consulting field or new to the case interview process, Enventure’s Case Interview Workshops has something for you!

Monday evenings 6:30-8:30pm, with all sessions held via Google Meet.

Course Logistics

Week 1 to 8 (1/11/2021 to 3/1/2021): Training session

Week 13 to 20 (4/5/2021 to 5/24/2021): One-on-one practice

Course Culture 

Given the limited time we have every week, we will push, challenge, and question you in the hope you will quickly learn. The feedback we provide is typically direct, open, and tough – just like the real world. We hope you understand that these comments aren’t personal, but are intended to emphasize the case interview process and help you rapidly accelerate your learning.  We also expect you to challenge our point of view, and engage in productive conversations. This form of feedback is extremely beneficial in preparing you for 1-on-1 case practices as well as the actual interview.

Expectations

This course is meant to be an interactive and challenging learning environment for you to progress in overall structuring and the case interview process. General expectations are to be mentally present while attending, otherwise you won’t be getting anything out of the course. We expect that you will start to become more vocal asking questions when needed and interacting with the leadership as we walk through course content. While attendance is not necessary every week, we strongly encourage you to attend a majority of the training sessions as these will provide the fundamentals to cracking cases. During the group practice portion of the course we hope that you will actively participate and engage with everyone. For the one-on-one practices, if you decide to attend we kindly ask you to prepare to give a case beforehand so that each partner has a chance to practice. We will make several case interview books available to you prior to these sessions.
