If you want to be 100% sure that you get the offer from MBB, Gaurav is the coach for you. He was my coach and I got the offer from McKinsey Istanbul! We had limited time to prepare but Gaurav navigated and utilized it to perfection.

Gaurav is a master coach who knows exactly how the interviewers think and covers all aspects of advanced cases carefully – atypical/tough cases, advanced tips, communication strategies – he get’s everything done to perfection. He also uses ‘real’ last round cases and not just any published cases.

Fantastic experience overall. I would highly recommend Gaurav for anyone preparing for MBB!
