Forensic Scholars Discovery Workshop

We’re pleased to announce the John Jay/KPMG Forensic Scholars Discovery Workshop is back!  Please consider applying!

What is the KPMG Forensic Scholars Discover Program?

The two-day workshop gives students a first-hand look at a career in forensic advisory services and an
opportunity to make contacts and form relationships they can use later on in their careers. KPMG
Forensic sponsors the workshop for the spring 2019 semester. Each workshop will start with an orientation to our practice. The program is structured to introduce
students to the fundamentals of four core KPMG Forensic service areas: Investigations,
Litigation/Dispute Advisory, Regulatory Compliance, and Forensic Technology. Through a combination
of interactive presentations and case study discussions led by senior-level forensic professionals, students
will gain an understanding of the strategy, technical approach and methodologies used by forensic
professionals in addressing client needs and providing solutions.
Each student will be paired with a KPMG Forensic mentor at the start of the workshop. Time will be
allocated for one-on-one discussions with mentors on topics under study and other relevant topics
including questions on careers. Read more
