Accenture recruits MBA students from Darden to join Accenture Strategy as full-time consultants and summer interns, depending on graduation year.

As the Executive Sponsor for our recruiting efforts at Darden, I am excited about the 2014 and 2015 classes. Darden students are uniquely prepared to succeed in strategy consulting, and Accenture is pleased to continue our long-standing relationship with the program. Strategy consulting involves working in teams with other highly talented individuals to address our clients’ most important issues. We believe this approach to teamwork is what sets Darden students apart, and is also what makes for an enjoyable and productive work environment. Your leadership experiences and your coursework are a perfect foundation for success.

At Accenture Strategy, you will work with leaders from some of the most respected companies in industry, putting your knowledge and teamwork to good use. 

You will help clients look for ways to increase shareholder value and transform their businesses. Our work is demanding work – and requires people who can identify, analyze and creatively solve complex problems, as we help transform the way our clients operate.

We team extensively with colleagues from other parts of Accenture to help drive tangible business outcomes for our clients. Our ability to combine industry expertise with breakthrough thinking, plus our ability to bring deep capabilities from across Accenture sets us apart from most consultancies. We don’t just analyze an issue – we also help our clients build real capabilities that help them become high-performance businesses.

I encourage you to learn what a career in Accenture Strategy can mean for you. Our campus team looks forward to getting to know you this fall. Please don’t hesitate to contact anyone on the Darden recruiting team if you have questions about Accenture or the recruiting process.
