The Case Approach

Case studies have become the new normal in any placement process in the consulting world. Mostly all consulting companies have incorporated a round of case study analysis as a part of their selection process. They prove to be a window into the thought process of the candidate and a yard stick of his/her analytical skills. Even the companies coming on the XLRI campus have resorted to test our skills through case studies. In order to prepare the XLRI juniors, who will be sitting for their Summer Internship placement process in October, CRUX conducted ‘The Case Approach’. Through this event, CRUX helped kick start the preparations of case study for the batch of 2015-17 for all of the 360 students.

In order to give them personalized inputs, the batch was divided into 3 and there were 2 seniors per division to share their insights, experience and inputs into the process. Since they had already gone through the process themselves, they provided knowledge into the types of case studies frequently asked and the thumb-rules to handle each kind. They also had an interactive session of solving a case in class which helped the students get some hands on experience on what to expect.

All in all, the aim of the session to share knowledge was accomplished in an interactive and eventful manner.
