Testimonials

Tosin - Law, Babcock University

"My KPMG internship experience was much more than I expected it to be.”

As a law student who had only theoretical knowledge of the tax laws, I was exposed to its practical aspect which provided me with valuable hands-on experience and enhanced my knowledge on Corporate Finance. Most of my best moments as an intern were spent with other interns and colleagues at work.
