    Hey I have an interview for Terra Firma Capital Partners First Round Interview with Cornell Partnership next Tuesday 14th of December. I'm quite worried about the technical questions and wondering how knowledgeable one must be for the technical questions. I know basic LBO but nothing more and I have a quite good grasp on financial analysis (i.e.: WACC, DCF, CAPM, and etc).

    Hey man, congratulations on that! I got an invitation for two talent simulation exercises by SHL. Any idea what these consist in?

    In any case, I imagine there are at most 3 spots at Terra Firma, so yeah, one had better show a lot of interest in private equity! So I guess your knowledge of PE should surpass what one would expect by looking at your CV.

    e.g. if you have no experience in investment, corporate finance or PE, then general knowledge and knowledge on a few specific cases should do.
    e.g. if you do have some experience, then you had better be on top of your game!

    Hi can I know the selection process of Terra Firma as there is no description on their website. So after the submission of the application form, what will be the next stage?

    By the way, may I know if your university is on their list in the application form?

    Hey guys,

    I think they have been quite active! I have my first round interview next week - booked it after passing the in-office SHL tests at the begining of last week. Anyone else going in for an interview?

    So far the process was: Apply - SHL Online Situational Judgement Test - Invite to London Office to sit numerical - first round interview.

    The AC is at the end of January.

    It is probably the best program out there (next to Blackstone) so I hope get as far as possible!

    I am a top 5 uni student (think oxbridge/lse/imperial) in a quantitative subject with S&T experience . But for Terra Firma I think they are not looking for just IB people, I think corporate/entrepreneurial/consulting experience is also very important- so I wouldn't worry too much! best of luck!

    They care most about excellence. It probably matters less what that excellence was in, as long as you are exceptional.

    are many people on here going for it then? I haven't really spoken to many people about it. I only know about it because of those lovely folk at Dartmouth Partners.

    Is your first interview going to be with Terra Firma staff or D. Partners ?
    I'm asking because so far I had one quick phone interview with D. Partners and another one-on-one at their offices.

    Did they say when they'd get back to you on whether you'd got through to the AC?
