Ola Joana,

As others have already stated, there aren't many cases in Portuguese - even in MBBs Portugal and Angola we practise mainly with English ones, but it's quite straightforward to translate them from English to Portuguese to practise.

Anyway, if you PM me we can discuss this further as I've extensive knowledge of both McKinsey (spent 1 year there) and BCG in Luanda, so might be able to help you with the best strategy for you to find those cases (even if they are not off-the-shelf!)

I did my internship in consulting and now I am preparing actively for interviews


As far i have seen, there are not many cases in portuguese in the web. You would have to buy the paperback issue in portuguese of the common handbook cases, however they are not easy to find.

I would strongly suggest you to do mock interviews with english cases and answer them in portuguese, which could be the best idea.

Thanks for your comment - are you preparing interviews in Portuguese too by any chance?

Hi there,

(Dropping a note here as other candidates may find this useful in the future.)

I am not aware of any portuguese cases being available. Consultants either use the english cases or make up cases based on their local engagements.

I know the portuguese market well, have been on both ends of recruiting (candidate and recruiter) for several consulting firms, including Bain Madrid which covers the portuguese market, and I have helped several candidates.

So if anyone is recruiting for Portugal/Angola, wants to do cases in portuguese or related to the portuguese market, I am happy to help.
