Nowhere near the same depth, just unstructured business problems. The key is to structure it so you appear much more organized and tactical than the interviewers

When you interview for industry, I would not bother with studying random consulting case studies. You don’t need that much structure and/or math for the most part from what I’ve encountered.

What you need to do is try to understand how their business works and ideas on how to make it better because 95% of the time the case questions will be about their company (minus the random ex-consulting hiring manager that pulls a non-related case).

1. Digital Product owner (80% focusing on financial industry)

Which one should I choose that can get me into Tech?
