The case study course

About us

The case study course is a student-run association at the University of Cologne. By participating at our sessions which take place every semester, selected students get the opportunity to develop their skills with regards to solving business cases and presenting the results. At the same time, we bring the participants into contact with five highly reputable consulting firms which provide insights about their work, culture, people and application process. If you are interested to learn more about the world of consulting or plan to apply at consulting firms in the future, the case study course is a great opportunity for that - regardless of your pursued degree (Bachelor, Master, PhD) or background (e.g. Business or Natural Science)!

The application phase is currently closed.



The was founded in the late 1990s by Paul Drew-Bear, Director of the American Management Seminars and Visiting Lecturer at the University of Cologne. In 2012, nine students founded the e.V. as the student-run continuation of Drew-Bear's iniated course. Since then, the club exists in its current form, enabling selected students every semester to improve their consulting-specific case-solving skills and to get into contact with some of the world's most renowned consulting firms.
