Thesis Internship Valuations

Pwc (groot)

Are you almost completing your master’s programme and would like to write your thesis or do your final project at PwC? Then, this is the perfect opportunity for you. We are looking for thesis interns. Interns get a good impression of the practice and are offered guidance on their thesis and access to knowledge and data sources that are not usually available to universities. In many cases, a successful internship is an excellent first step toward a career at PwC.

What you are going to do

Valuations is the PwC department engaged with valuation matters. Their services may be required for M&A deals, but also for tax, accounting or strategic reasons. In this field, PwC’s Valuations department is the number one player in the Dutch market. Valuations benefits from its wide international network of professionals and counts primarily multinationals among its clients. The Valuations department offers an intellectual challenge owing to the strong link between theory and practice. There is a direct link with current affairs: projects we have worked on appear in the media soon after. Some examples of Valuations engagements:

  • Fairness opinions with respect to mergers and acquisitions;
  • Valuation of business units and intangible assets for the purposes of IFRS;
  • Determining strategy;
  • Scenario analysis;
  • Valuation of financial instruments;
  • Valuations for legal and arbitration proceedings.

Questions that could be directed to Valuations include:

  • What is an honest acquisition price?
  • How do you translate analysis into advice?
  • What is a brand name worth?
  • How do you determine an enterprise’s cost of capital?
  • When is uncertainty valuable?
  • How risky is synergy?
  • Where does goodwill originate and what does it signify?
  • How do you view the strategy behind the figures?
  • How do economic circumstances influence an enterprise’s value?
  • What negotiation points are there from the financial/valuation perspective?

  • You are a Master’s student in a financial, economic or technical discipline. Relevant courses in the area of valuations and/or corporate finance are preferred;
