Work and part-time university education 

In addition to your work and development at KPMG, you attend university classes once a week at a university of your choice to obtain the necessary qualifications for the rest of your career. You conclude with a post-master's program. Some trainees may also complete a pre-master's and master's degree. 

Tailored trainee program 

Did you know that it does not matter which bachelor's or master's degree you have? Of course, backgrounds in accountancy, control, economics, or business administration are helpful, but there are also trainees with completely different backgrounds. From biochemistry to information science to hospitality management! Everyone is different, and your motivation is the most important factor. 

How long does the Audit & Assurance Academy last? 

We tailor the program specifically to you. On average, the Audit & Assurance Academy lasts four and a half years. However, it can be longer or shorter depending on your personal circumstances. 

What Audit Trainees enjoy about KPMG 

  • Continuous learning. You learn both on the job and during the Audit Foundations. These are several days a year where you work on audit topics and personal development together with other trainees. 

  • Making friends. You always start together with other trainees. Close-knit groups often form, and they continue to stay in touch later in the program. 

  • Obtaining a post-master's degree. You start directly with a university program to become a registered accountant, and you are assigned a development manager and a buddy to help you achieve your goals. 

  • Variety and impact. You work on diverse assignments for a wide range of clients. You help companies grow by doing what is right. 

  • Youthful and social. YOUNG KPMG regularly organizes social activities, and Young Board Now represents the voice of young colleagues in the management. 

  • Informal culture. At KPMG, you will find that accountants are just fun, creative, and approachable people!
