Kingston, Jamaica 27 April 2018 – PwC was recognised by the University of Technology’s Faculty of Engineering and Computing with an award at their 6oth anniversary diamond jubilee customer appreciation event on Thursday (April 26). The award commemorates PwC’s work in supporting the development and delivery of the information technology (IT) audit curriculum.
PwC has been collaborating with the faculty of engineering and computing since 2010 to prepare students professionally by contributing to the curriculum content and through the delivery of guest lectures. In addition, the top two students in the faculty are awarded internships with the PwC Risk Assurance team annually. This opportunity allows interns to gain valuable exposure and to work alongside experienced PwC professionals.
Bruce Scott, Risk Assurance Services Leader said, “We are delighted to have received this award. The RAS team has been instrumental in supporting the development and delivery of the IT audit curriculum for over seven years. We’ve had great success stories coming out of this initiative with several interns that have been beneficiaries of the PwC/Utech collaboration.”
Carolyn Bell Wisdom, Partner, Risk Assurance PwC Jamaica added, “Part of PwC’s purpose is to solve important problems and we feel that our relationship with Utech and other universities, is an excellent way to contribute to fulfilling our purpose. Which is why we are particularly proud of the interns who have joined us over the years, in fact, many of them have become permanent team members and some have gone on to take up positions in various industries.”
The initiative forms part of the firm’s corporate responsibility efforts to support the growth and advancement of young people through education.
