PwC nurtures entrepreneurs
The prospective bursary candidates participated in a business simulation game and were challenged with activities ranging from setting up balance sheets to simulation of accounting processes based on real business scenarios.
The program concluded with some of the firm’s trainee accountants, managers and associate directors sharing experiences and answering questions from the group. The students also had a chance to interact with PwC Namibia’s top management and partners for an open conversation about the range of options available to finance professionals.
The Entrepreneurial Development Forum and our Bursary Programmes form part of the PwC Namibia’s strategy to educate and improve the skills levels of Namibians.
PwC Namibia currently sponsors 87 Namibian students (of whom 62 are from the previously disadvantaged group) studying at South African and Namibian universities towards their accounting degree and postgraduate qualifications.
Their current bursary commitment totals in excess of N$9.2 million. As one of the world’s leading providers of professional services, the PwC global network of firms has offices in 776 locations and 157 countries.
