Are you interested in becoming a management consultant, but don’t know where to start? Or a consultant hoping to gain entry to a more competitive firm? If so, this is the book for you. 

After conducting hundreds of interviews during his time as a McKinsey consultant and consulting coach, Antoine Espinet has an insider’s view on what it takes to land an offer from a top-tier consulting firm. He’s coached hundreds of candidates to an offer at McKinsey, BCG, and  Bain - together known as MBB - and outlined the most common pitfalls and success strategies in this book.

Full of interviewing techniques, increasingly difficult practice cases with step-by-step solutions, and comprehensive descriptions of the consulting lifestyle and what it takes to succeed, this book is the definitive guide on how to prepare for a life as a management consultant. 

Antoine walks you through the entire application process to help you assess your strengths, get your resume and cover letter to stand out, and ace each section of the interview with proven techniques. 

Every step of the journey is outlined in detail, with clear definitions of the business jargon consultants use day-in and day-out, an overview of business case frameworks, and even exercises to uplevel your mental math skills.
