Accenture Student Empowerment Program

Bring your big ideas and ability to creatively solve client business problems to Accenture and you may find that your career catapults to places you never imagined. Accenture is a global management consulting, technology services and outsourcing company and we’ve created the Accenture Student Empowerment Program (ASEP) to help students like you jump start your career.

Upon acceptance into the program, you’ll benefit from a mentorship program that is built to help you learn more about consulting and better define your interests, goals and career path. Learn from experienced professionals who’ve traveled the road you may want to take and get a true glimpse into the day in the life of a consultant. If you are energized by what you see, take the next step to see if you’re eligible for a paid summer internship.
