About the programme by KPMG

The KPMG Graduate Programme is a 1-year programme for management consultants, tech consultants and auditors. During the first week, you will go on a trip with your fellow graduates. The focus of the trip is to give you the initial training needed to start your career and to start building your network (read: socialize!).

When you are back from the trip, the training continues. You will receive more general training together with all the graduates (e.g. core consulting skills training), as well as training specific to your service line.

As part of the KPMG Graduate Programme, you also become a part of the Graduate Network, a network of graduates from a great variety of companies and industries.
