Grow with Grant Thornton Summer Leadership Program

The Grow with Grant Thornton Summer leadership programs are an opportunity for achievement-oriented college students across the country to learn more about what a career at an international professional services firm has to offer!

Over the course of a 1 to 4 day program, depending on location, students will gain insight into everything it means to be a Grant Thornton professional.

Through a variety of activities - such as case studies, professional panels, and team building activities - students will gain exposure to our renowned Grant Thornton culture as well as Business Leaders, Senior Executives, Associates, and their peers across our Audit, Tax and Advisory service lines.

Our hope is that you leave our GwGT programs with a very CLEARR picture of what a career at Grant Thornton could look like as well as newfound leadership skills and potentially, an Internship Opportunity.
