Meet Sandile | Success story

Featuring Sandile Nkala, one of Curtin’s graduates who has managed to secure a position at one of the Big Four audit firms; KPMG. She is one of the University’s most active students right from her first day and has used her energy and positive attitude to obtain this opportunity even before she graduated.

Here’s what she says about the entire experience.

For as long as I can remember, I have always wanted to work in a Big Four Accounting firm. However, I knew that they only hired the cream of the crop. In my mind that meant I had to work very hard to stand out and make my dream come true.

Fortunately, I made the right decision by choosing to go to Curtin University Dubai. On top of high-quality education, I was given well-rounded career development guidance. By the time I graduated, I had served as one of Curtin’s Student Council Presidents, completed three unique internships, volunteered numerous times, and was featured in Forbes Africa to name just a few of my experiences. It was all thanks to Curtin Dubai.
Thus, when I got the opportunity to meet KPMG representatives at the Curtin Dubai Career Fair, my CV stood a chance to impress the prominent organization.

Thank you Curtin University Dubai for giving me all the tools and knowledge to help me make my dream come true!
