We’re number one! 

At the Magnet Communications Awards, it was announced that KPMG has been voted the number one Employer of Choice among Commerce students! For several years in a row we have been ranked number two, consistently second only to Absa who this year achieved second place. The South African Reserve Bank is third.

In addition, we also won the Auditing/Accounting/Taxation industry category, ahead of Deloitte (second), PwC (third) and Ernst &Young (fourth).


To put this into perspective, this annual survey polled 39 000 students from 24 tertiary institutions across South Africa, including 16 000 Commerce students. The same survey is done worldwide with over 130 000 students in 32 countries, where KPMG achieved second place worldwide in the 2010 survey (second only to Google).
