Accounting Advisory Financial Services

The end of your study programme is approaching and there’s just one more challenge in front of you: writing your thesis. Would you like to write your thesis in a more interesting environment than the University Library? We’d be glad to help! A thesis-related internship at PwC is an opportunity to gain valuable and relevant experience. In addition to writing a thesis, there will also be opportunities to gain practical experience from financial services specialists at PwC’s Capital Markets and Accounting Advisory Services (CMAAS) business unit. Financial Services is an important and growing sector for our Accounting Advisory practice. Within the Financial Services group of CMAAS, we advise banks and insurers on topics such as IFRS 9, risk management and other relevant regulations. Are you interested in this field of operations and would you like the opportunity to thoroughly investigate such a topic during your thesis-related internship? In that case you are the person we are looking for! We are offering you the possibility to write your Master’s thesis with the help of banking and insurance specialists. This internship is also an opportunity to experience what it is like to work in our team.

Who are you?

  • You are an up-and-coming talent who has an affinity with the financial markets and the relevant reporting standards and regulations. You are ambitious and yearn to develop further.
  • You are in the final phase of your Master’s programme in Finance, Accountancy, Economics, Business Administration, Industrial Engineering and Management or a similar financial-economic discipline and have had good results.

  • You have good social skills and enjoy working in a team.
  • You have a good command of Dutch and English (both spoken and written).

What the job entails

Your chief task is writing your thesis on a subject of your own choosing or one that you decide on together with your coach. Your coach will help you define the problem and will supervise you in specialist areas. You will share a room with fellow interns and other CMAAS colleagues. You will find that, owing to the open culture within the group, not only will you receive support from your coach but that other colleagues will also be prepared to help you whenever you have questions. Since you will be surrounded by professionals working on different types of engagements and for different kinds of clients, you will have an opportunity to test your knowledge, theories and conclusions in practice.
