College of Europe and Deloitte cooperation

Deloitte renewed its three-year programme to support the College of Europe as the first partner of the 'European Economic Integration and Business Programme'. Under this cooperation, the College of Europe and Deloitte have the opportunity to exchange knowledge and experience on EU issues.

We jointly organise an annual Bruges European Business Conference , the first one of which took place on 18 March 2010. Also, Deloitte offers an internship to a College of Europe graduate each summer. Deloitte is also actively interacting with the Alumni Association of the College. Several College alumni are working for different Deloitte member firms across Europe.
