From Experience

Steven Weissen

Tax Manager, International Corporate Tax at KPMG AG
«Through my in-service training as a qualified tax expert, I’ve had the best possible preparation for dealing with national and international issues that are becoming increasingly complex. Through lively exchanges of ideas with colleagues in interdisciplinary teams, exactly the right solution for each individual client is sure to emerge. Thanks to the flexible working hours model, I can consciously switch off as a balance to the challenging work, by travelling and going on cross-country skiing tours, hiking or drawing.»

Gregory von Gunten

Founding partner of the law firm Lenoir Delgado & Associés SA
«What advantages does my training offer me? It gave me the opportunity to start my own business. Thanks to my qualification, I am highly visible on the market, which is very helpful when it comes to finding new clients. I can also deliver quality work for my clients and give them precise and practical answers, which is not always the case with a more theoretical education like LL.M. Tax.»

Markus Prinzen

Partner, Leader CT Taxes & Deputy Service Line Leader Tax & Legal Services Switzerland at PricewaterhouseCoopers AG
«If you’re an expert in tax law, working at the place where law and business administration overlap, you find yourself working in a modern and flexible environment. Every day brings new challenges, and that calls for flexibility, but also allows me to organise my work and private life to fit well with each other.»

Markus Vogel

Partner in tax consulting at KPMG
«I’ve worked as a tax expert for several years, and I’ve enjoyed every moment. The flexible working model motivates employees and helps create a great team. It gives me an optimal balance between my demanding, varied work and the other things I do. Flexibility – on the part of employers no less than of employees – is simply the future of the world of work.»

Jasmine Schärer

Manager at KPMG
«As an accountant, I have a new surprise waiting for me every week. This keeps the work varied and I get to know many different companies. I don’t compromise where my work’s concerned and I remain flexible; sometimes, I work more intensively and longer so that later on I can enjoy more time for myself, my friends and my family. This is simply a great starting point for my future career.»

Jessica Perolo

Fiduciary expert at BDO SA
«I enjoy direct contact with clients, the variety of cases and collaboration with colleagues from the same department and from others. With our flexible model, everyone can adopt their own working rhythm: early in the morning or late evening. My employer lets me organise my workload the way I choose and to work part-time. My training has given me the technical tax knowledge I need from day to day and to build a network in Western Switzerland. I avoid taking work home with me, even if it means staying longer in the office.»
