DE Shaw visits the top 10 colleges in India for campus placements. In Pune, Fergusson is the only college it conducts interviews. It has been coming to the campus for five years now. Last year, nine students were hired by the company.
Third-year students of any stream with a percentage of 60% and above were eligible for the test. The selection procedure was tough as well as interesting. They checked our management, analytical and leadership skills
The written test was quite easy. I am already preparing for the Common Admission Test (CAT), so everything went pretty well. In the group discussion, they were keen on seeing how many students have a clear and strong stand on the topic ‘Should there be an international committee to counter terrorist attacks?’ I supported my answers with statistics and I think that worked in my favour. The interviews that followed were rigorous and tough Added One of the selected student.
