My approach

My story and goal:

I failed all my interviews at MBB after I applied there for the first time. Two years later I got offers in all interviews.

My personal goal is to help you get an offer and not make the same mistakes I made. Hint: Using onll Victor Cheng, Case in Point  and others can lead you down the wrong path.

I am happy to offer you a discount based on your personal situation. Just send me a message. In general, I offer 10% off for the first session.

My coaching approach:

Please find below how I typically structure coaching and the type of cases that I use. However, I will always discuss a customized approach with you depending on your situation (prior knowledge, # of applications, prep time, etc.)

 

Typical two week before interview curriculum (3 sessions)

  • Assumed prior knowledge: +30 cases on Preplounge/ offline

 

  • Session 1: Assessment of your situation and background + Case 1 (I will send you an individual preparation plan afterwards)
  • Session 2: Case 2 + structuring homework beforehand
  • Session 3: Personal Fit interview + market sizing

 

Typical 4-6 week before interview curriculum (5-7 sessions)

  • Assumed prior knowledge: +10 cases on Preplounge/ offline

 

  • Session 1: Assessment of your situation and background + Case 1 (I will send you an individual preparation plan afterwards)
  • Session 2: Case 2 + structuring homework beforehand
  • Session 3-5: Cases 3-5
  • Session 6-7: Personal Fit interview + deep dives and delivery practice

 

Typical 8 week+ before interview curriculum (10+ sessions)

  • Assumed prior knowledge: Familiarity with solving cases through books, +5 cases on Preplounge or offline

 

  • Session 1: Assessment of your situation and background + Case 1 (I will send you an individual preparation plan afterwards)
  • Session 2: Case 2 + structuring homework beforehand
  • Session 3-5: Cases 3-5
  • Session 6-7: Personal Fit interview + deep dives and delivery practice
  • Session: 8-10: Cases 6-8
