KPMG San Diego Summer Leadership Program

KPMG San Diego Summer Leadership Program

Each summer, KPMG offers opportunities for students to develop their global leadership skills and gain new perspectives on public accounting through one of our summer leadership programs. These programs, offered at both the national and local levels, allow students to:

• Explore audit, tax, or advisory career opportunities with KPMG,
• Network with other student leaders and KPMG professionals; and
• Get a jump start on the campus recruiting process.

Discover KPMG is a local leadership program that gives students a first-hand look at a career at a global professional services firm. Participants will work closely with local office leadership, professionals, and recruiters. Activities may range from technical case studies, leadership development workshops, community service to exposure to client engagement situations. Students will gain insight on what it means to be a professional at KPMG.

KPMG’s Fast Forward National Leadership Program is an interactive training program focused on enhancing participants’ existing leadership skills, while meeting and networking with other student leaders from across the country. One key component of this program is framing leadership concepts with real-world perspective through sessions facilitated by KPMG Partners. Participants will also gain insight on how to continuously develop leadership throughout their careers, whether in the U.S. or in another part of the world. The deadline to submit your application is Friday, April 5.
