The most effective case interview training program in the world, according to our subscribers, participants and our placement results for McKinsey and BCG, is celebrating its third season: The Consulting Offer III.
We could say many things to explain the impact of this program, but the 50% success rate of both Seasons 1 and 2 for full-time offers from McKinsey and BCG says it all.
The 50% of participants who did not receive offers from McKinsey or BCG are also much better off. They believe the program was a life changing experience, but decided to use their new skill set and polished profiles in pursuing other career paths, usually internal consulting within Fortune 100 companies. One went into investment banking after declining an offer from McKinsey. We believe that without this change in direction, the success rate would have been even higher for McKinsey and BCG.
The third season will be grander, more effective and with improved training techniques as we are always looking for better ways to teach clients. It will not be a simple repeat of TCO I and TCO 2 with just the case questions changing. This is an immersive experience where we give you a complete career, skills, communication and image transformation.
This time we are going to get you into McKinsey and BCG, but also focus on building out your soft skills to ensure you are an outstanding management consultant who gets promoted in the minimum possible time. That is our goal for Season 3.
You have an opportunity to be a part of this great program. Not just to learn from it but to be in it, and to change your career trajectory by directly working with some of the most senior former partners of McKinsey etc. Where else can you receive this opportunity?
Here is the trailer to Season 2. As you can see, it was an opportunity of a lifetime for Alice and Michael, the participating candidates.
More importantly, based on feedback from our clients who worked through the program, the course changed their lives and allowed our subscribers to achieve the levels of performance they did not think were possible. That is why we want to continue building the program with a third, better, season.
If McKinsey and BCG have declined you before, and you are wondering if taking part in TCO III can change things for you, keep this in mind:

We took over the largest conference center at the luxurious Ritz Carlton in Buckhead, Atlanta in the great state of Georgia.
We spent an entire day converting the room into an elegant production set.
Candidates went through every aspect of a McKinsey final round interview, including the closed-list dinner.
They received personal one-on-one mentoring from former McKinsey and BCG senior partners. Kevin P. Coyne who co-led McKinsey’s Worldwide Strategy Practice led Season2.
Non-participating guests, in this case from the Harvard Business School, watched the entire event and had an opportunity to have detailed discussions with the candidates and coaches while watching the entire session live.
The coaching, discussions and mentoring continued well after the camera’s went dark, which speaks to the commitment of the ex-partners like Coyne & Boricki who led the program in Season 2.
All of this culminated in the world’s most successful case interview training program. Now back for a 3rd major season.
