21/11/2022: Five year strategic partnership will deliver a range of activities that will maintain and enhance KPMG’s contribution to business education in Ireland.
KPMG, one of the leading providers of professional services, has signed a five year partnership agreement with Dublin City University Business School. For over four decades, KPMG has been a strong supporter of accounting education at DCU.
Through a substantial philanthropic commitment, this agreement will make a significant contribution to the Business School’s mission to educate leaders and professionals for the global marketplace and to contribute to the development of individuals, industry and society through its teaching, research and engagement with industry.
Expanding and building upon existing engagements, it will see collaboration on curriculum development, guest lectures, student awards, deeper ties with DCU’s work placement programme and human capital enrichment. It will also see collaboration on research, across topics related to accounting and the accounting profession, talent development and human resource management, leadership, innovation and digitalisation. Additionally, it will offer professional development and training opportunities for KPMG staff.
Prof Daire Keogh, President of Dublin City University said:
“This new strategic partnership marks a very welcome extension of our relationship with KPMG. It is a collaboration that will be of huge benefit to students at DCU Business School, both in terms of the evolution of our innovative and industry-relevant courses and in relation to increasing access to high quality work placements in one of the world’s leading companies.”
Prof Barbara Flood, Professor of Accounting at DCU Business School said
