KPMG Master of Accounting with Data and Analytics Program

Company: KPMG LLP
Location: Columbia
Posted on: May 17, 2020

Job Description:

**What is the intention of the KPMG Master of Accounting with Data and Analytics Program?**
Many technologies, including data and analytics (D&A), are changing the way that KPMG and the public accounting profession provide services. Beyond a deep knowledge of accounting, professionals often need to be D&A-savvy and possess the analytical skills and critical thinking to improve procedures and deliver insights that are expected in the data age. The focus of D&A in academia is not primarily aimed at our profession, and new talent will benefit from more preparation in order to work in today's data-driven accounting environment. The KPMG Master of Accounting with Data and Analytics Program (the Program) has been created to help provide this education and to provide financial support to a select number of KPMG-sponsored students (Program Participants), who are joining this program. In addition to the benefits to the graduates of the Program, we plan to include elements of the curriculum in the training that our existing professionals receive.

**Why is D&A so important to KPMG and the accounting profession?**
The quantity of information new D&A technologies and tools are able to handle, and the speed with which they are able to do so is unprecedented. Clients and shareholders expect their Audit and Tax professionals to keep pace, improve services, and provide deeper insight based on the new capabilities and data volumes. Addressing this new reality is critical to our profession's focus on quality. Our connection with leading business schools to develop the Program curriculum is one example of our innovative approach to resolving an industry-wide challenge.

**Which universities are participating in the Program?**
We are sponsoring students at the following universities (together, the "Program Universities"):

- Arizona State University's W. P. Carey School of Business
- The Ohio State Max M. Fisher College of Business
- The University of Georgia's Terry College of Business
- The University of Mississippi's Patterson School of Accountancy
- The University of Missouri's Robert J. Trulaske, Sr. College of Business
- The University of Southern California's Leventhal School of Accounting
- Virginia Tech's Pamplin College of Business
- The Villanova School of Business.

The University of Mississippi's Patterson School of Accountancy was the first university to offer both a Master of Accountancy and Data Analytics and a Master of Taxation and Data Analytics as a part of the Program. Beginning with the 2020-2021 academic year, KPMG expanded the Program's Tax concentration to The University of Southern California Leventhal School of Accounting and the Villanova School of Business to offer similar Tax degrees. In addition, KPMG provides Baylor University's Hankamer School of Business technology and proprietary Audit tools for use in its Master of Accounting curricula but is currently not sponsoring students at the university.

**Why should individuals become Program Participants in the KPMG Master of Accounting with Data and Analytics Program?**
This award-winning KPMG Program offers:

- A master's degree in accounting professionals in the data age. The demanding coursework will go beyond traditional accounting principles to include technologies and methodologies used in today's highly complex, data-centric accounting environments, ensuring that the next generation accounting students are equally comfortable in their D&A skills, as they are in their traditional accounting skills
- For Program Participants, paid tuition, fees, books, and a stipend to help cover room and board toward a graduate degree specializing in advanced accounting with D&A methods, tools, and technologies, including KPMG's proprietary tools and data sets
- For Program Participants, real-world experience using KPMG's proprietary tools during a paid Audit or Tax internship in the spring semester/term
- For Program Participants, an Audit or Tax position as a full-time experienced associate with an opportunity for an accelerated career path at KPMG for high performers

**What courses will be offered in the Program?**
The demanding coursework at the participating universities goes beyond traditional accounting principles to include technologies and methodologies used in today's highly complex, data-centric accounting environments, ensuring that next-generation accounting students are equally comfortable in their D&A skills, as they are their traditional accounting skills.
Each university has integrated the Program to fit seamlessly within its master of accounting and/or master of taxation degree. The curriculum will include at least 30 credit hours of accredited coursework, and may include subjects such as those listed below:

- Data Analysis and Visualization
- Systems for Data Analytics
- Auditing through Information Systems
- Analysis of Tax Accounting and Integration of D&A
- Statistics for Accounting Analytics
- Auditing with Automated Audit Procedures
- Innovation, Emerging D&A, and Cognitive Technologies
- Data Mining
- Fraudulent Financial Reporting
