Strategy Graduate Programme
On this programme, you’ll be a trusted partner to our global clients, helping them to address their most significant business issues. Part of a project team, you’ll drive innovation and help clients shape new business models, define the case for change and execute business transformation agendas.
Working closely with professionals in other Accenture businesses, you’ll utilise our business insight and understanding of how technology impacts industries to help clients stay ahead in the digital world. So you could be structuring and performing analysis and primary research, developing business cases and plans, or developing your skills to help clients understand leading-edge technology capabilities.
It’s an excellent opportunity to stretch your strategic mind and test yourself at the sharp end of business. You’ll also develop core leadership, problem-solving and people management skills, along with valuable industry and functional expertise. Strategy careers at Accenture cover three practices:
- Business Strategy is about helping clients develop new products and services in innovative ways, or prepare for the digital markets of the future.
- Technology Strategy focuses on creating technology strategies that are synchronised with clients’ business, people and operations, and building the IT and operational capabilities needed to execute these strategies.
- Operations/Function Strategy helps clients enhance their agility with simplified and digitally enabled internal functions powered by skilled talent.
