I am Jonatan, the second blog writer and a member of our IYP group. I have studied International Business in Jyväskylä University of Applied Sciences (BBA) and Computer Science in the University of Jyväskylä (M.Ec.). Working in a project in the Finnish Pensions Cluster.
As our blog writing continues it is my turn to shed some light on our life in India. This is my first visit to India and so far it has been a very pleasant and eye opening experience. Although only a month has gone by much has already happened.
The past two weeks we all attended the Analyst School in Bangalore, India. It is a training most analysts participate in in their first year after joining Accenture. We spent the two weeks learning of different roles and responsibilities analysts have in the project lifecycle and how the actual project is structured. Long class hours came with the addition of many networking opportunities as we were a group of 60 analysts from all over Europe. It was a great experience to meet many smart, young professionals with similar interests and great personalities.
Although there was a lot of studying to do we got to enjoy the life of living in JW Marriot hotel, which I must say was a very pleasant experience! With all the hard work there needs to be fun as well. The many after-hours activities we attended from official networking events to trips to visit the nightlife of Bangalore really showed us the importance of having like-minded, fun people as our colleagues.

A palace in Bangalore? No, a hospital next to our hotel of course.
Now it is time to get back to our normal work life in Pune. Although, only two weeks and our Christmas vacations begin. But that will be covered in later posts. Till next time!
