# Question on MFE placements/ DEShaw

#### dearappu

Hi,

This question just popped up in my mind...

Does DEShaw recruit from any MFE programs (or MBA programs otherwise)?

Thanks

Why the heck would it need to?

They prefer Non-MBA program students. They recruit hard from math departments and engineering. I think Columbia is one of their targets, atleast I would assume so since the owner is former columbia prof.

The founder is no longer at DE Shaw - he is now doing research in computational chemistry and high performance computing.

never assumed anything. Odds are you might be wrong. I had an old boss who used to say when you assume you make an "A$$(of)U(and)ME". #### Joy Pathak ##### Swaptionz never assumed anything.

Point taken. Will keep in mind.
