At the beginning of christmas season, Strategy& invited the CEMS students for a “Crack a Case” Workshop into their new office on the 41st floor of the DC Tower. With an amazing view over Vienna, they had the chance to get to know more about the company and how to get in. The main topic of the workshop was the famous consulting application process and the associated case interviews. In interactive traning sessions the CEMSies learned what the success factors for consulting interviews are and how to solve tricky case studies. After an introductory presentation about the structure and the general approach to case studies, they were split up into groups of three to four and had the opportunity to practice interview-like case studies with the strategy& consultants. The consultants challenged the students and also shared useful tips and tricks for improvement. Afterwards, the students were invited to an informal conclusion of the evening in the Mexican Bar Mendez where they could network with strategy& employees in a more relaxed setting while having some food and drinks.
