This un­con­ven­tional month- long re­cruit­ment con­test ran par­al­lel to En­gro Cor­po­ra­tion’s es­teemed MT Re­cruit­ment Drive. The pi­lot was fo­cused on four key uni­ver­si­ties; par­tic­i­pants from IBA, KSBL, LSE and LUMS un­der­went a se­ries of as­sess­ments, start­ing with The El­e­va­tor Pitch elim­i­na­tion round. 2000 grad­u­at­ing stu­dents were tested for the En­gro MT Re­cruit­ment Drive, of which only 200 el­i­gi­ble can­di­dates were con­sid­ered for The En­gro Games.

While stu­dents com­peted in ran­domly as­signed teams, each con­tes­tant was as­sessed in­di­vid­u­ally on their con­tri­bu­tion to the busi­ness sim­u­la­tions.

I would also like to take this op­por­tu­nity to thank the En­gro team who played a piv­otal role in mak­ing this pro­gram a re­ward­ing one.” In his speech, Sub­hani made a sur­pris­ing an­nounce­ment and hired four Man­age­ment Trainees from the Top 20 finalists; Aye­sha Waseem ( LSE), Muham­mad Ahmed Saigol ( LUMS), SaniyaSadaqat ( IBA) and Su­fian Salam ( IBA) all went home with ap­point­ment let­ters in their hands!
