    I have chosen to apply to (name of brand) because I would like to acquire in-depth knowledge of auditing and consulting, and also to gain practical experience.

    If you really want to use "on account of" then you would have to put "on account of the fact that I would like to acquire......" However, in my opinion, that is a messy sentence and "because" is sufficient.

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
