Premium Partner - PwC

Collaboration with PwC is versatile and has long roots. They help our students develop their skills, recruit new talents and get valuable insights from our students.

One of our longest partnership co-operations is with PwC. They joined the Premium Partner Program in 2001, the very first year the program was established. Our collaboration has actually a long history already before that but the program gave it more depth and width within the School of Business.   

PwC is an international network of member firms. They have operations in 156 countries and in Finland employ over 1200 experts. The annual report also reveals that the PwC trainee program employs over 200 future experts annually. This is actually one of the main targets of our collaboration – Aalto University students and alumni are highly valued employees in PwC. The cooperation is diverse because the service range of PwC (consulting, deals, tax, legal, audit and other assurance services) corresponds well the programs taught  in the School of Business.  

PwC is actively involved in the School’s teaching, from the basic courses up to the Capstone courses, which are for students near graduation. The students get valuable information on the skills and competencies needed in the working life and get to practice their skills in various projects. According to PwC one of the most important working life skills is communication with clients and that is something you can’t learn from course books. Fortunately the project courses help in developing this competence, too. PwC has also commissioned several Customized Student Business Projects in which their business has gained valuable background information for their work with their clients.

For students

PwC has a Trainee program that runs yearly and covers all business units. The Accounting Trainee-positions are always at the beginning of the year and others mainly in the fall or spring.
