But don't take our word for it. Watch the video and check out the photos on Facebook.
The Master Class consists of two rounds: a local round and a national round.
The local round will take place at your current university in February. Exact dates differ per location. This round will test your skills in structuring, organizing and working in a team to come up with innovative ideas. You'll meet Accenture employees and have the opportunity to get their feedback on your performance. It's an ideal opportunity to get to know Accenture. Please check the 'How to register' section for more details on the dates for each university
The national round will take place on March 10 & 11. The finalists will be invited to participate. Students will be selected based on their performance during the local rounds. During the national round, you'll tackle a concrete business challenge in a structured way guided by a coach. You will need to leverage the expertise of experts to draw up the solution to this challenge from both a business and a technology perspective. This is a unique learning opportunity: a realistic simulation of a consulting project that will bring you deeper understanding of what you could do at Accenture
