What is a case interview?

A case interview consists of a business problem taken from a real-life business situation.  It focuses on your analytic/structured approach to the problem rather than specific business knowledge.  Cases involve qualitative and quantitative questions. The interviewer takes you through a series of steps to see how you tackle the various levels. The steps can range from identifying a critical issue, to breaking a problem into component parts, to finally identifying one or more solutions.
Test your skills and prepare for your case interviews. 

Practice interviews (questions and answers) are available on the Bain & Company website:  joinbain.com/apply-to-bain/interview-preparation
