McKinsey interviews are the toughest in the industry with only 1% of applicants receiving an offer. Providing solid answers is not enough. You need to stand out to land the job offer. Hence, preparation is a must.

However, not all preparation is the same. 9 out of 10 candidates, who we coached, using the exact same methods demonstrated in this program, received an offer with the firm.

We developed the Ready-for-McKinsey program primarily for two reasons. First, we have seen candidates constantly repeating the same mistakes in our initial coaching sessions and real interviews. Additionally, they ask the same set of common questions. Second, we scanned all materials out there that should prepare candidates for their McKinsey interviews. What we found is that they are either outdated or from ”coaches” without any real McKinsey background and, hence, not useful at all.

As former McKinsey consultants, interviewers, and experienced case coaches, we made it our mission to change the odds of applicants with this video academy. Enroll and benefit instantly from our 9 years of combined experience with McKinsey, unique insights into the McKinsey interview process and tips and tricks for the Business Case and Personal Experience Interviews.

Due to the contrast technique we apply, showing bad, OK, and excellent candidates in simulated interviews, the program is aimed both at candidates at the beginning of their interview preparation as well as at candidates in more advanced stages of preparation.

    A great video tutorial series! I learned more during my first playthrough than in the 3 weeks before when I was going through the classics case in point and case interview secrets and practiced with some people from preplounge. The cases are very Mckinsey specific and they authors really demonstrate what the differences are to traditional cases and what is important for each question. It helped me to get a clear understanding of the interview process and content of good answers. The PEI part is equally clear as they show how a bad story can be transformed into a good one for all 3 dimensions. I can highly recommend this program.

    Very good primer into the world of McKinsey interviews. I am excited about the learnings and the approach that is taken here. The two guys clearly now what they are talking about and present it in an entertaining and succinct way throughout all components of the feared McKinsey interview. I definitely recommend it to everyone who is going through the process with the firm. L.

    I ordered the videos with the Imbellus guide to help prepare for the upcoming Mckinsey first round. They’re very helpful and having the support available is also efficient to answer questions on the go.

    Lots of great tips on the general approach but also the small details that matter in case and fit part. It’s very well presented how McKinsey interviews differ with focus on more creativity and more structure. The whole process is shown in a succinct and accurate way with all of the best practices.

    Good for case starters like me but I believe also pros can learn a thing kr two from these videos.

    the program is great as it provides a practical insight to mckinsey interviews by contrasting bad, good & excellent performances for the case and pei. unlike other books or videos, they do not discuss frameworks, but offer an approach that works for all cases. the insights on the pei are very helpful for coming up with your own stories. i would say that it is definitely a must-watch if you are going for mckinsey as the two former interviewers know their stuff and cover all aspects clearly.

    I wanted a career change and received an invitation at Mckinsey and BCG for an experienced hire position. Unlike my university buddies, I have never dealt with consulting interviews and have no prior knowledge of how to approach these interviews.

    I am glad that I found the videos. The academy is divided into 2 parts, the case interview where typical Mckinsey case interview questions are simulated and acted out. After each question and answer there is a detailed explanation why the answer was bad, good, or excellent. In the end, it’s always the same tricks that make an answer good or excellent. I think the most interesting part is the difference between good and excellent because you only learn that if you’ve been an interviewer yourself. In the second part, they talk about PEI and how to get to the right answer. I think Mckinsey is very specific as an employer and only wants to hear very specific things and dive deep into one story at a time. The guys work out very well which elements the story has to contain and how the interview goes (intro, interim questions, content).

    In conclusion I can say that I benefited enormously from the program and got a very quick insight into how Mckinsey interviews work and what is important to get through.

    I can absolutely recommend the RfM to every applicant for McKinsey! Here, all questions related to the daunting interviews are systematically clarified and answered (e.g. how to approach the McKinsey business cases and the PEI, what is important to the interviewer, what matters, what to consider…). I like the fact that there is no focus on frameworks, but on the specific way of thinking and communicating like a McKinsey consultant. They even demonstrate how to answer a question with completely different replies, yet getting the same strong performance feedback from the interviewer.

  7. William D

    The program promises to teach you how to solve cases and PEI questions “the McKinsey way” and it delivers on this promise. The result is a video guide to problem solving and story telling that is that is well structured, concentrates on the essentials for McKinsey, and does not get lost in irrelevant details. The methods taught are surprisingly simple to understand yet hard to master I believe. I am still early in my journey and this helped me a lot in my approach

  8. Siena

    An all-around great program. I can get a lot out of it, great instructions and tricks. They show partly very simple and surprisingly ”easy” ways to approach the McKinsey case questions that I can replicate in my case practice and noticed how it improved my approach and answers. Well paced, concise and not too long.

  9. saskia

    good overview of the mckinsey case interview process with lots of tips and insights. complied in an understandable manner with good case examples and pei stories to clarify what is important. i learned a lot i did not come across yet in my case prep. i especially liked the explanations at the end of each video as to why an answer was bad, ok or excellent. i think its a no brainer if you want to get into mckinsey and not spend a lot of $$$ for private case coaching sessions.

  10. Akaash

    I was looking for a resource for practicing cases by myself after going over Case in Point. The interview videos are great resource for all those who need to pass their hiring process. The guys demonstrate that there are no right or wrong answers but everything depends on your approach and thinking process. The focus on creativity is very different from the framework approach of Consentino and I have heard from several sources already that McKinsey uses more creative cases where frameworks don’t fit. I would definitely recommend this program. It’s also fun to watch!

  11. Essa

    The videos provide an excellent basis for applications to McKinsey. The case preparation, conduct and PEI stories are discussed and showcased in detail. There are many points and insights on the content and communication for both types of interviews, nicely explained and made tangible with numerous examples.

  12. Lena P

    I havent practised cases since graduating 2 years ago and the program is a definite lifesaver for McKinsey interviews. I have watched it from start to finish now I believe 7 times and also listen to it while going for a run or walk sometimes. My interviews are coming up in a few weeks and I keep noticing new small details every time I watch it again. I was very keen to implement what I have learned in practice interviews and also taught my interview partners the approach that is shown here. They all adopted it and are using it now

  13. edwin

    Completely new approach. I’ve been prepping for case interviews for the last 3 weeks already until I stumbled on this program and I wish I had found it earlier. The videos give a completely different insight into McKinsey interviews from what I have seen in LOMS for example or practiced in mock interviews.

    I have incorporated what I learned into my practice sessions and restructured how I practice for case interviews now and the difference in performance and my confidence is huge because I always know what to do and how. You still need to practice to incorporate the learnings but doing cases makes a lot more sense now to me

  14. Marium

    Awesome videos! As someone who had no idea what a case interview was less than a month back, these really helped. My preparation is still ongoing, I’m practicing with a lot of different case buddies but I always come back to these to remind myself of the essential habits/approaches as well as the extra analysis to make my answers go from good to excellent. Hoping to do the same on my actual interview soon.

  15. Pascal

    This academy is a great mental workout if you are aiming at McKinsey. The guys make it very clear why and how McKinsey interviews are different and how you can use this to your advantage when preparing and solving the case with an interviewer and when telling your pei stories.

  16. Gia

    I used this video format as the foundation for my McKinsey preparation and was able to land the offer. I still had to practice what I learned here but I am convinced that these mock interviews and the debriefs showed me the right way and helped me to be very focused on the essentials in the real interviews.

    The real interviews happen exactly like it is shown in this program.

  17. Leon

    The program is super valuable. You can really prepare for the types of questions, almost in a checklist kind of way once you watched it. I paired the program with 3 interview sessions (2 cases and PEI) on top of practicing with friends and by myself and, while difficult, I felt very confident during the interviews because I always knew what to do next. I got the offer on the same day and the guys here have a huge part in this. Thanks again! It is very comforting to have an offer in times like these…

  18. Peter

    Both guys are great and very knowledgeable coaches and it shows in their program. They really managed to put their insights into McKinsey’s interviews in a very concise and effective program. After watching their videos a few times I changed my approach to McKinsey interview questions.

    The program covers the case and the pei interviews. For the case, I took tons of notes to remind myself of the key habits for every question. After that it is almost like going through a checklist for each when doing a real case. I felt super prepared because I was not expecting any surprises and the process was very clear. For the pei, I adjusted my stories that I already had drafted to fit better with the McKinsey dimensions. Also I changed a bit how I told them and what aspects I highlighted.

    I learned more in this program than through all practice interviews. I would definitely recommend watching it 3-5 times during your preparation. Totally worth it!

  19. Steven

    Great preparation for the McKinsey interview. For the case preparation, it’s not about standardized scenarios or frameworks, in contrast to other preparation programs. You have to think for yourself, and these videos guide you on where to focus your thinking effort and how to communicate. The PEI videos are also very much like the real ones.

  20. zhuowei li

    my favorite preparation for mckinsey and I recommended it to all my peers for their applications!

  21. Phaki O

    Very much to the point. I watched it 5 times before my interviews and incorporated the learnings into my problem solving approach. Their tips work and it makes everything very clear.

  22. Anthony James

    such a cool program. I purchased both this and got LOMS from a friend. the videos from the ready-for-mckinsey program are much more structured and new so they cover the actual questions I got in the real interviews.

    I used it as a starting point and then practiced, practiced, practiced with friends and coaches to solidify the habits.

  23. Sarina

    Amazing collection of Mckinsey interview videos, really well structured and taught by the guys. I did not know that the problem solving interview is so standardized and you can prepare so well for the specific question types. also the personal interview where you have to discuss stories of your life are really clear once you watch the videos and the debriefs.
