If yes, don’t hesitate and register for the Accenture Virtual Hackathon.
The Hackathon starts on April 15th at 8 am and ends on April 16th at 6pm.
The registration is open till April 8th.
Take advantage of the opportunity to put yourself in the shoes of an Accenture consultant and solve a simulated problem, similar to those that we at Accenture faced in the previous years. They say that best ideas are born not in isolation, but out of great collaboration and that’s why you can invite a couple of friends to form a team. For 12 hours, you and your team will analyze the provided data, crunch numbers, draw meaningful insights and ideate solutions that would make an impact.
On the next day, five selected teams with the best proposal will have the chance to present their solution in front of the jury, made up of Accenture consultants. Jury will evaluate your proposed solution, based on its: Feasibility, Innovation, Value and Presentation. Jury will then offer actionable feedback to help you grow professionally in the future.
This year challenge is focused on shaping the future strategy in emerging technologies for our fictional client. The COVID-19 pandemic has shaken the ground under every industry and in order to stay relevant, our client must pivot to secure new revenue streams. We will provide you with some data, but from there it’s up to your entrepreneurial mindset to develop a compelling business case for a new product and convince our client that this is the right opportunity to pursue.
The purpose of the Accenture Hackathon is to let you experience a day in a life of a Management Consultant. This simulated experience will give you the opportunity to:
Gain insights into the type of work Accenture consultants do (and decide if it’s right for you)
