RSM Excellence Academy

This new program, designed for underrepresented minority students, will help you personally and professionally develop into a career-ready individual upon graduation.

Your RSM Excellence Academy journey

  • Kick things off with a 3-day paid skill-building and professional development program in Chicago, IL
  • Take part in an operations internship the following summer, exploring RSM from the inside, out
  • Engage in an exciting client service internship prior to your final year of college
  • Students who meet program requirements may receive a job offer upon graduation

You’ll gain mentors at RSM who will support you throughout your college career and keep you connected to the firm, while simultaneously enjoying opportunities to actively engage with our employee network groups (ENGs) as you grow through various stages of the program.

We aim to help students become career-ready – hopefully at RSM, or wherever you decide to begin your career – while building the diversity of our workforce and consequently, our effectiveness as the leading firm serving the middle market.
