PwC announces new Partnership with Kemmy Business School

PwC today announces new partnership with the Kemmy Business School supporting excellence in business learning and education.

The principal element of this new partnership involves supporting student innovation and will run initially over the next two years.  The new Student Innovation Project will set out to deal with key business challenges in today’s world and will give students the opportunity to voice their opinion and be awarded for their work. Academic prizes will also be awarded to first year students in semester one and second year students in semester two for best marks in two business models.

Speaking at the announcement, Ken Johnson, Lead Partner, PwC Mid-West Practice, said: “Many businesses are challenged by a shortage of key skills and this is also evident in the Mid-West region. Through these awards we hope not only to recognise and support excellence in learning and education but also to enhance the development of skills that are required by local businesses.”

‘The Kemmy Business School has always had strong connections with business practice. This new chapter in our relationship with PwC highlights the importance of that engagement. It is among the key factors that sees KBS students experiencing one of the highest employment rates in Ireland.’ Professor Finbarr Murphy, Executive Dean of Kemmy Business School
