Hi Delloite

What papers do you recommend taking at university for business/commerce?

Thanks

Hi Deloitte, I’m in my last year of high school and have been taking accounting since year 11. In order to join your firm do you recommend going to University or do you have specific programmes for high school leavers.

Hi Amiee,


It all depends on what you want to major in, if you're looking at accounting as a career then it's important you look to take the courses that meet the NZICA (Chartered Accountants) requirements.

Hope that helps!

Hi Adelaide,

We don't have anything specific for high school leavers, if you're interested in being an accountant then there are university requirements you have to meet to do your chartered accountancy qualification.

You can definitely look to apply to us in your first year for an internship though!


Thanks,
Rob

Hi Barret,

It definitely gives you a good grounding as to what to expect but people have gone into accounting at university. The big thing is having a love of numbers and being able to focus on the details.

Thanks,

Hi Mariah,

We review our salaries yearly but generally this sits in line with other employers. You can expect your salary to be reviewed yearly as well so it's not a fixed number for the time you're employed with us.

Thanks,

Rob

Hi Rob,


To get a job with Deloitte do you need to have a degree from university or is a polytech ok?

Hi Mariah,

No you don't need specialised computing skills, if you're interested in working with technology then studying computer science or programming is really beneficial.

We recruit IT graduates into our Consulting and Enterprise Risk Services area and they particularly look for people who have a passion for IT and finding solutions.

Thanks,
Rob

Do you take graduates from Waikato uni? If so, would you employ a graduate who has done a bachelor of business analysis majoring in economics and finance?
