Curious about the Mid4? Ready to meet the Big4 at an inspiring and prestigious location? Are you currently studying Accountancy or have a strong affinity with Accounting? Challenge yourself and your team, be the best and win a Letter of Recommendation from one of the Big4 firms!


At Fort Boyard you will get the chance to meet the Big4 in just a single day. Meet their employees and learn more about a career in accounting at the largest audit offices.
