Definition of a Case Study: A Case Study is created using a research method that is in-depth and detailed to examine an issue or problem and its related contextual conditions.

Being familiar with case studies will help you prepare for case competitions and also for company interviews.  While the case competition presentation will be brief compared to one done for a job interview, understanding the elements will strengthen your solution.
