The rise of digital banks has changed customer expectations. Digitalization has already delivered a major blow to businesses that were slow to respond to industry changes. Yet there’s more to come. The very concept of (traditional) banking is being redefined as different fintechs and other innovative financial services firms enter and exit the industry amidst a rapidly changing technological landscape. Financial leaders at the highest level of the organization must act to harness the power of the Fourth Industrial Revolution for a long-term advantage and increased shareholder value. The need for firms to introduce, reshape, and optimize new customer journeys is clearer than ever.
How can banks transform themselves to meet the revolution of brand-new customer journeys and financial offerings (online / cloud-banking, open platform banking, etc.) to flourish in a future augmented by new technologies? What drives real business value, customer satisfaction, as well as innovation and creativity?
Accenture offers you the possibility to experience this new revolution from the front row. You are expected to write a master thesis based on scientific research into the concepts, applications and values of Customer Journey and New Banking within the Dutch banking industry. Next to its theoretical value, the thesis should generate new knowledge and insights that is of direct relevance to Accenture’s Financial Services industry and should strengthens Accenture’s leading position as a global professional services provider.
