WHY ME

When I decided to apply to consulting during my last year of Master, I was surrounded by other students who had been preparing cases for months. At that time, I did not know what a consulting case was about. However, this did not prevent me from getting an offer from McKinsey & Company! It's all about preparation

I am looking forward to sharing and teaching the structured approach that I developed during my interview preparation, the sources that I found most useful, and further tips beyond the mere business case. 

Throughout my consulting experience, I did lot of coaching to graduating students interested in applying to consulting. During the first year of MBA I joined a structured "peer leader" program and helped several MBA students with case prep. 

I joined McKinsey & Co. after winning the "Next Generation Women Leaders" Award and I am happy to share my experience as woman in consulting. Also, I have got lot of friends who work for other consulting firms and I am also happy to talk about differences in the approach and interview process among them. 

MY APPROACH

The key lesson I learned thoughout my interview process is that "cracking the case is important but it's more than that".  For this reason, if you choose my coaching package I am happy to support you through a 360-degree preparation.
For those who are interested into a single session, I will focus on case prep only - so please refer to the 'solving the case' part only.
