Urgent: Need written cases for Monitor Deloitte interview

Abhinav asked on Jun 20, 2019 - 1 answer

Hi Guys,

I have an interview coming up with Monitor Paris office and I am struggling to find resources (written cases) to prepare from.

Can you suggest some casebooks that have data heavy cases?

Thank you.

Hi,

It's a very standard written case interview.

I've uploaded some samples here:

The best way to prepare is the following:

  1. Prepare for a regular case interview - it helps a lot. Basically, prep lounge website is about it
  2. Practice making slides. Look for publically available MBB presentations for reference. Good books are "Pyramid Principle" and "How to make it with charts"
  3. Practice reading cases fast and prioritizing the information. I found useful two sources:
  • Written cases you'll be able to find in google or in case books. I've seen a couple in "Vault Guide to the Case Interview" and "Insead Business Admission Test"
  • Harvard cases - either buy or try to find online. You can find a couple of MIT cases here for free: https://mitsloan.mit.edu/LearningEdge/Pages/Case-Studies.aspx Unfortunately free cases don't have the prep questions.

The appropriate structure for BCG written case is (However you should check the format with the company you are applying to):

Slide 1: Context, Objective, Recommendations

Slide 2-4: Analysis (Usually 1 slide with a table, 1 slide with graphs and 1 slide with pros and cons)

Slide 5: Next steps or risks & mitigation

Good luck!
