Paid Internships

You’ll have an unparalleled opportunity for a 10-week paid internship where you will immerse yourself in a valuation service line at one of the best professional services firms in the world.* Our partner firms—Deloitte, EY, KPMG and PwC—provide winter internship opportunities for Vanderbilt MAcc Valuation students at their offices throughout the U.S. during their busy season. You will expand your knowledge of valuation by applying your education to "real-world" experience.

During the internship, you will learn to:

  • Explore conceptual and practical problems companies face.
  • Appreciate the role of valuation work in financial reporting.
  • Employ innovative uses of information for decision making.
  • Apply key concepts to novel situations.
  • Understand how businesses make decisions based on information provided by your team.

Earn While You Learn

You can earn $11,000 or more during your internship. Plus, you will learn the language of business and likely earn the job you want. Most firms consider this internship an extended interview for post-graduate employment.

Process for Earning Internship Placement

You'll participate in a structured process for internship placement, including individualized assistance in preparing for interviews and networking events. You will also attend several firm- and school-sponsored recruiting events to learn more about public accounting and professional services career opportunities. During Immersion Week, you will have an internship interview with each of our partner firms.

*Internships are not guaranteed. If a student has previously participated in an internship or does not receive a Big Four internship offer then elective courses will be taken during the internship period.
