KPMG offers its own digital degree
08 January 2018
In what is being seen by some as a snub to universities offerings, KPMG has said it has launched its own digital degree apprenticeship.
The degree will initially be based in London (13 places), Manchester (10 places), and Leeds (4 places), with more places becoming available in the North West later in 2018.
Future apprentices to the four-year KPMG degree will earn a BSc in Digital and Technology Solutions from BPP University. They will, of course, be earning a salary at the same time.
Similar degrees are being offered by BT, Goldman Sachs, IBM and Lloyds Bank.
It has been suggested that many students leaving university lack the ‘soft’ employment skills that are needed by companies like KPMG.
