The University of Greenwich are happy to announce a new partnership with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) LLP on their Diversity Mentoring Scheme.

This provides a great opportunity to Business School students giving them access to mentors from the accounting and professional services firm PwC, voted the country's number one graduate employer for the last eleven years (The Times Top 100 Graduate Employers).

This relationship opens doors for our students to gain industry insight and more importantly build contact networks for the future.

According to the Diversity Mentoring Coordinators from PwC, "We decided to partner with the University of Greenwich as they have experienced a growth in their recognition and academic outcomes. In addition, they have a large number of first generation university students from a wide range of cultural backgrounds. We believe that they will be a great partner for PwC."

"PwC are passionate about partnering with the Business School Employability Office, who have been recently shortlisted for the Best University Careers/Employability Service Award in the National Undergraduate Employability Awards 2015", the PwC Diversity Mentoring Coordinators added.

The Business School Employability Office (BSEO) successfully matched 233 students in the mentoring scheme where they benefited from one to one meetings with mentors over a six month period. The BSEO also work closely with mentors from leading organisations such as IBM, Northern Trust, Ernst and Young and Barclays.

We hope that our students will enjoy and benefit from this new partnership with PwC mentors.
