Strategy Case

A typically Strategy Case is a common type of case you’ll see in your first or second round consulting interviews. So you can think about it like first of all make sure you understand the problem statement and clarify the goals. After that, write out your structure and gather information.
In this way, you should be well prepared for the case.

2. Case

Entrepreneurship Case

In this case, think really outside the box. Entrepreneurship is about creating opportunities over resource control. So be aware of the fact that you might have to go completely new ways to find appropriate solution. If you are able to consider that in your approach and are open for getting inspired by various examples from your environment, you will be able to find adequate solution.
