As part of established internship programs across the organization, Accenture Development Partnerships first offered internships in 2005.
Accenture Development Partnerships provides internships with a difference—the opportunity for interns to apply their skills and knowledge on exciting and challenging projects.
The interns work with development sector organizations such as Oxfam, WorldVision, the GSM Association, UNICEF and the International Finance Corporation (World Bank) in global locations ranging from Vietnam to Bolivia. Projects last six to 10 weeks and provide internship opportunities that help drive social and economic development in developing countries.
To apply for an internship, applicants should go through the normal recruitment channels at Accenture—but bear in mind that not all countries across the organization are participating in the internship program. Please visit Accenture Careers to find out more.
"The month I spent in La Paz was, without a doubt, one of the most amazing experiences I've ever had. I worked with a team of three other Accenture Development Partnerships resources in Save the Children's country office, determining a path for their IT strategy over the next 10 years. Accenture’s track record in corporate and social responsibility, in which Accenture Development Partnerships plays a critical role, was a key factor in my decision to apply to the firm. For me, the experiences I’ve had this summer only go to bolster the company’s outstanding reputation for confident corporate citizenship.”—Hugo Soul, summer vacation scheme: IT Strategy, Save the Children, La Paz, Bolivia
"While this internship allowed me to apply many of the skills and knowledge that I acquired during my MBA, it was the challenges embedded in this internship that had the most impact on my personal and professional development."—Kimberly Hurd, feasibility study, GSMA, Kampala, Uganda.
"Making this kind of opportunity available to its people really tells you something about Accenture as a company. And the fact that people take up the opportunity also tells you a lot about the kind of people it employs.”—Morgan Hargrove, Management Information Reporting Project, Oxfam, UK.
