Hi All, I wish to join one of the top consulting firms like McKinsey, BCG, B&C etc. I am currently working as a Business Analyst with a work ex of 3 years. I have started exploring on my own and one thing that came out different were Case Studies interviews and I have started reading and preparing for them. I will do MBA also post working in one of these firms. I was hoping if anyone can help me to prepare better or suggest a plan to land a job for a role that aligns with my ambitions. Thank You

If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB?
