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 →
The MPA faculty has identified available Differential Tuition funds to try out a new differential tuition funded program – research assistantships. MPA students will be paid to work with faculty on research and scholarship projects. The hourly rate is $18, and number of hours is still being finalized, but each project listed below will be authorized at least $1,000 for student employment. The funds will have to be expended, and the hours worked, by the end of June 2017.
The MPA programs conduct an annual survey of current students in and graduates of the MPA in Public Policy and Administration (MPA-PPA) and the MPA in Inspection and Oversight (MPA-IO) including students in the MPA-IO Advanced Certificate in Forensic Accounting and MPA students in the single MPA program before the program was split. The survey is designed to serve a set of purposes, and therefore we combined them into one survey to save students time and effort. The results are in.
Congratulations to students admitted for Spring 2016 to the MPA programs, both online and campus. You can take the following steps to plan your course of study and register for classes. MPA services at firstname.lastname@example.org can assist if you encounter problems registering.
