University of Michigan Business School Case Book 1 - 2001-2002 Edition Michigan A Word of Thanks ! This casebook is the result of many hours of hard work put in by students of the University of Michigan Business School. In the first year of their MBA program, a year that is difficult because of academic and career search pressures, they devoted several hours to interview second year MBA students in order to gather real cases that were administered during interviews for full-time consulting positions.

We believe that the consulting industry offers unparalleled opportunities and rewards for intelligent and creative professionals. Perhaps more than any profession, consulting offers individuals the opportunity to choose from any number of rewarding areas of expertise while working in a team-based environment.

Maximizing Your Return This book is an attempt to provide second-year students, returning from the summer, different types of cases from various consulting firms. It is an attempt to help kick-start the case interview preparation for full-time consulting jobs. The book has real cases that were given to second-year University of Michigan Business School students last year. They were collected via an interview process between first- and second-year students. The consulting club appreciates the efforts of everyone who helped put this book together. We would also like to point out what this guide should not be used for. This guide is not a substitute for the hours of practice needed to learn how to “crack a case.” Being able to nail a case interview comes through practice and perseverance. While we hope that this 2

Therefore, we would encourage you to seek out other MBAs to practice with and use the career counselors in the Office of Career Development. We should also note that recruiting is a multifaceted process.
