About our partnership with Accenture

Accenture supports and recruits Master’s students from the BSE because they display the skills that the consulting firm is looking for. In addition to funding the Data Science Scholarship (beginning in 2016-17), Accenture routinely comes to campus for recruitment talks and Career Services events.  Over the past few years, Accenture has recruited BSE Master’s students to work as analysts and consultants in their offices in Amsterdam, Barcelona, Johannesburg, Milan, Stockholm, and Verona.
