Networking: Attend our Consulting Networking Night on the evening of September 14th. Register in Handshake for this event, which is open to all Tufts students who would like to explore the field of consulting.

In the case interview, you will typically be given a business problem and then asked to solve it in a structured way. Learning this structure takes preparation and practice.
