SprinterMasters Acceleration Programme

Sprinter - Masters Acceleration Programme

At PwC, we recognise outstanding individuals who are motivated to achieve both academically and professionally. Sprinter is an accelerated programme specifically designed for individuals who wish to pursue a masters degree while gaining professional experience at the same time for students studying in China.

From January to March over a period you are completing your masters degree, you will join our Assurance, Tax or Risk Assurance services. You will share the same working experience as our Associates, be deeply involved and learning on challenging client projects. Each year as you return, you will apply the skills you learned from the previous year, then further accumulate new knowledge and capabilities. You can expect that by the time you complete your masters, you would have gained one year of professional experience.

What's in it for you

As you will work alongside our Associates, your training and development will be the same as our Associates as well as coaching support. High achievers who meet the performance criteria set will receive an offer as an Associate Year 2 upon completion of the 2-3-year programme. This means, your year-long experience gained will have helped you to accelerate your career at PwC.

Are you ready for the sprint?
