Premium Partner - Deloitte
Deloitte is one of our oldest partners and joined the Premium Partner program as early as 2006, but in fact, the collaboration has even longer roots. The collaboration in teaching, employer branding and recruiting has been at the core of our joint and long history.
Deloitte offers a wide variety of services for its clients: audit and assurance, consulting, financial advisory, risk advisory, and tax and legal services. Internationally, Deloitte operates in more than 150 countries with around 345 000 experts. In Finland, Deloitte employs 750 experts in three locations.

"Due to the long and active collaboration, more and more of the new Deloittees come from Aalto University.”
- Leena Nyström, Deloitte
Leena Nyström (Partner, Human Resources and Talent) finds important similarities in the missions of our organizations: “Aalto University helps creating solutions for the big global challenges, which is also at the core of our mission as the worlds biggest expert organization. At Deloitte we usually serve our clients as expert teams in which experts from different fields work together. Due to the long and active collaboration, more and more of the new Deloittees come from Aalto University.”
One of the corner stones of our collaboration has always been the marketing of the Deloitte Trainee program, which has application periods twice a year. In addition, it is important for Deloitte to meet the students in various ways throughout the academic year and therefore they participate in many events hosted by both the university and the student organizations. Recruitment experts from Deloitte have been helping our students by preparing them for case interviews, reviewing their CVs in CV clinics and, of course, participating the annual Aalto Talent Expo (and its predecessors). The students have noted this and have given very good feedback about Deloitte in our surveys – Deloitte has really helped them in developing their job hunting skills.
Deloitte has also participated in teaching in many ways – providing interesting cases for courses and guest lecturers.In turn, our students have had a great opportunity to provide valuable background information for Deloitte’s business in Customized Student Business Projects.
The two biggest business units, the consulting and auditing units, are also the ones that recruit the most Trainees. However, Deloitte is a big house and has interesting opportunities for almost all current and former students in the School of Business. Deloitte also cooperates with different student organizations within Aalto University (the Prodeko, Tietokilta, Accounting, Finance, Jury, etc.), which helps get diverse, yet also more targeted, visibility.
The application period for the Deloitte Trainee-program is usually twice a year: in the autumn and in the winter. The Deloitte Trainee pages are in Finnish at the moment, but they usually have some positions for non-Finnish speakers as well.

Partnership Programme for long-term collaboration
