Dr. Jon Dellandrea Award 2019: KPMG Canada

KPMG, which has been a flagship partner of Management Co-op since 2003, was named the Dr. Jon Dellandrea Award winner for 2018/19 by demonstrating an unprecedented commitment to student success.

"In total, KPMG has created about 83 work terms for our students, and that number is growing!" said Sischa Maharaj, Assistant Director of External Relations and Communications with the Department of Management.

“What sets KPMG apart is not only how they've built a strong on-campus brand through countless networking sessions and practice interviews, but also by inviting Management students to participate in open houses with KPMG senior managers. Our students are so fortunate to benefit from that level of access and mentorship."
