HOW WE PREPARE STUDENTS?
The Consulting Group at Baylor knows the importance of case interviews and wants to help our members succeed. We host case interview preparation sessions to help members prepare for interviews. We also offer the opportunity for members to schedule one-on-one practice with the executive board or other senior members.
WHAT ARE THEY?
Consulting firms use a unique style of interview called a case interview. Case interviews test candidates ability to use analytical and problem solving skills in a real-time environment. Candidates will be evaluated on their business judgement and ability to be articulate in their thinking.
Students from all majors and backgrounds can succeed in case interviews. With proper preparation, anyone can pass a case interview!

"I have enjoyed the group because I have been surrounded by like-minded individuals who have similar professional goals as me. In addition, I have been able to network and meet people who are now working for companies I aspire to work at some day, and they have provided guidance for students still at Baylor. The leadership of this group is committed to providing its members the best opportunity to land a consulting job and I think their determination to reach their goals is more apparent than any other group."
