Our main goal is to promote the consulting industry and to provide a platform for our members to develop their consulting career. To reach that goal, we're bringing together enthusiastic students from the University of Basel and ETH Zürich and providing them with a framework to prepare for case interviews.
We are a non-profit organisation registered as a student association. Members of our club are students of the University of Basel and ETH Zürich. Our constitution is public and available upon request.
We are mostly master's and PhD students from Swiss universities; in particular University of Basel and ETH Zürich (including the D-BSSE, the UniBasel Biozentrum and the Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research among others).
Case Interview Workshops
We organise weekly workshops for our members to meet and solve cases. The format is typically one-on-one and back-to-back meaning that students pair up and do two cases, one in the interviewer and one in the interviewee role. Our members are on different proficiency levels and cover diverse educational backgrounds.
Occasionally, we invite practicing consultants to coach our members on case interviews as well as personal fit interviews. It's a great opportunity to network and learn about the industry directly from consultants. Our coaching events are published in our Event section at least a month in advance.
Case Interview Resources
We provide our members with a library of over a thousand cases, CV and cover letter resources, literature, discounts for couple of external interview preparation programs and other useful tools and resources.
Case Interview Partners
Through our consulting club, you have a chance to pair up with other candidates for practicing case interview. It is crucial to practice your case interview in person and the Graduate Consulting Club provides a platform for finding a suitable case partner.
