Case study interviews

Typically, there will be 3 case study interviews lasting around 1 hour each. Case study interviews test your approach to problem-solving, the creativity and analytical nature of your thinking, and your usage of the data presented. Usually, the case study part of the interview will last 30 – 40 minutes. Apart from the presentation of the initial case, our case study interviews are mainly candidate-led.
