Blockchain Consulting in the Financial Services Industry (Graduation Internship)

Become a part of the world’s leading organization as a graduate intern. Bring your vision to life and help industry adapt to the changing world of business by building innovative solutions through insight. Start your graduation project at Accenture Consulting and transform your ideas into reality!

Innovation in Financial Services
The rise of Blockchain – or distributed ledgers – has changed customer expectations and generated a new stream of technologies that can be applied by organizations to innovate existing business processes and models. Traditional business models are under threat, yet complexities are increasing, and customers are becoming more demanding. Blockchain – and its associated technologies – can be the answer to stay competitive in this constantly changing environment. Across the world, Financial Services firms are waking up to the possibilities that Blockchain can bring to their business.

Established financial firms are increasingly exploring and using Blockchain to improve their current products and services, to increase transparency and cut costs. A future in which organizations record and automatically manage their financial recordings is near. Distributed ledger systems are additionally a tool to build business to business platforms that can unlock new business models. By reshaping how the financial industry is defined, how ecosystems interact and how value is created, Blockchain and platforms, are helping to build an economy anchored on shared outcomes. With all these changes organizations should question how blockchain – or distributed ledgers – affects their mission and core business. Are financial firms, as we know them, still relevant in the future?

Your impact
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 related concepts, application and value of Blockchain initiatives in the Dutch Financial Services industry. Next to its theoretical value, the thesis should generate new knowledge and insights that is of direct relevance to Accenture’s Financial Services department and that strengthens Accenture’s leading position as a global professional services provider.

Besides the thesis, Accenture offers you the possibility to develop your professional skills. Graduating at Accenture is more than just getting your degree. For instance, we stimulate our interns to engage in additional activities such as writing articles, organizing deep dive or round table events, and networking by meeting with and presenting results to experts in a variety of fields. At Accenture, the sky is the limit!
