Our Story

Hi, I’m David Ohrvall, founder of MBACASE and author of Crack the Case System.  I wrote my first book, Crack the Case: How to Conquer Your Case Interviews, on a dare from my wife, Shiloah. A few weeks later, the consulting club at Chicago Booth called and asked me to speak at their case interview boot camp. That event in November of 2003 was the first of hundreds of Crack the Case Workshops that our team of talented trainers and coaches have led over the last decade. Today, our workshops touch thousands of MBAs and undergrads each year at top business programs in seven countries.

Shiloah got a lot more than she bargained for when she made that dare. Our little book turned into a part-time business and then a full-time career. She oversees the finance and technology sides of MBACASE, and also lends a hand with product development and marketing. Before we launched our business, she was a CPA with PwC in international tax. She’s my multi-talented partner in business and the rest of life. We live in the Chicago suburbs with our four kids and around 89,000 wild bunnies who eat my entire garden every summer.

We would not have the global reach we have today without our secret weapon: Carole Driscoll, Office Manager extraordinaire.  She brings 25 years of office management and customer service experience to this key role. Carole runs a tight ship while juggling event logistics, contracts, billing and client relationships.

Our newest team member has the tall task of keeping my schedule on track and taking care of our coaching clients. Diadra Miller, our Coaching Coordinator, has over 20 years of customer service experience, and a boundless energy that benefits our clients and team every day.

Thank you for visiting us at MBACASE. We hope you will explore our site, check out my blog, peek into our video library, grab some free practice cases, and book a Crack the Case workshop at your school!  Let me know how I can help you crack your case interviews and transform your career.

All the best,
