The BCG Online Case Experience you will need to master if you want to join the Boston Consulting Group (BCG). The Casey chatbot interview replaces the former BCG Potential Test. In BCG’s new online case format, “Casey”, a virtual chatbot interviewer, takes you through a business case interview.
In this video, I first contrast the “old” BCG Potential Test with the new BCG Online Case, and break down for you what to expect whichever test BCG requires you to take in the local BCG office that you apply to. Drawing on lessons from my video on how to master the McKinsey Problem Solving Game Imbellus as well as on my Casey-specific advice, I provide you with strategies to help you improve your BCG Online Case Experience performance. I furthermore offer you three very hot tips for your BCG Online Case preparation – make sure not to miss those!! Spoiler alert: They include links to (un-)official Casey mock tests for your BCG Online Case preparation… ⭐
In the fourth part of the video, I have prepared for you an interactive BCG Online Case training session to help you get familiar you with the common test questions and challenges. I hope that this practice session helps you to get ready for your BCG Online Case Experience!
As usual, I have added some fun parts to the video, mocking the rivalry between McKinsey and BCG, and having some fun interactions with Casey, the chatbot… 😄😉

2. As explained in the video, the company that developed the Casey chatbot for BCG has also created online Casey practice tests for BCG applicants… what a clever business model!! They offer a 20-minute free Casey chatbot interview practice test, which brings you probably as close to the real test experience as you can get. At present, the free test is still available (they had temporarily taken it down, but it has now reappeared 🙂 ), you can access it here:
Scroll down to the bottom of the page and have a brief chat with the chatbot in the bottom-right corner of the page – after a brief conversation, it will lead you to the free test.
At the end of the free mock test, you will be offered to buy its complete version for a 50% discount. The company offers additional Casey interview mock tests for sale to simulate the real BCG Online Case experience. I recommend that you first take a look at the free resources that I have compiled for you (see above), but if you decide to try out one of their paid practice tests, note that that I would earn a small commission through the affiliate link provided above.
