5 reasons why graduates should join Edge – PwC Deals Graduate Programme

5 reasons why graduates should join Edge – PwC Deals Graduate Programme
1. Learn to work across the entire deal cycle – not just one part of it.
You're curious by nature and you want to know all about the entire deal cycle? We've got you covered!

Our Edge programme foresees four nine-month rotations within Corporate Finance / M&A, Transaction Services, Valuations, Delivering Deal Value, Capital Markets & Accounting Advisory Services and M&A Tax and across our Deals industries.

Your last nine months will take place in the final team where your further Deals career starts.

Moritz: "I joined the EDGE programme because the rotations in specialized teams around the deal cycle feature numerous development opportunities and PwC supports the completion of a professional qualification like the ACCA."

2. Get to know and work with colleagues from different teams and build your own network across the firm.
We recognise the importance of building a professional network. The Edge programme will give you countless opportunities to develop relationships across PwC teams and beyond your national boundaries, which will prove invaluable during your career at PwC.

Marina: "Since I do not have a finance background, I joined EDGE because the programme was the optimal path for me to work my way into M&A. As EDGE participant, I did not have to choose one focus area right away but had the opportunity to first learn what the day to day business actually looks like."

3. Work on international projects with different cultures and learn to adapt to different working styles
The international side of the EDGE programme starts and ends with an international event. You will have the chance to meet all Edge participants across EMEA, receive in-depth training and participate in exciting activities and events. Here's a sneak peek of last year's programme kick-off.

Besides that, the programme also offers our 5-10% top performers to experience an international rotation into another participating Deals territory.

4. Enjoy the perks of having a group of friends who experience the same ups and downs and support each other
You will never be alone! You'll always be part of an international team of smart thinkers and deal makers, working together to solve some of the most demanding questions in the Deals environment. Always remember the people you met when you started are exactly in the same position as you are, and don't be afraid to reach out to them, schedule an online coffee or lunch… even if they are in another country, there's no physical borders on the internet, right?

5. Be part of a global firm working with a multitude of different clients potentially shaping the future of the market.

You'll look at things from different angles, add rigorous analysis and perseverance, and you'll have amazing opportunities working with other highly skilled and motivated Deals professionals, on challenging projects. Creative and fresh thinkers are always welcome to our Deals team.
