Entry Route

Due to high demand, we have unfortunately had to close this entry route for applications. Please register an interest in this pathway and also review our other Accelerate pathways to see if they also align with your interests. Please bear in mind that you can only apply to one Capgemini early careers role in each Academic year.

What is the Analytics & AI Accelerate Programme Pathway?

The Analytics and AI (A&AI) pathway of the Accelerate programme is designed for talented graduates who are passionate about data strategy, data science and data analytics. In A&AI, we develop and apply technical skills to help clients solve complex business challenges.

The Accelerate Programme consists of 2 parts:

  • The Institute (circa 3 months)
  • The Academy (circa 18 months)

Your first 3 months of the Accelerate Programme will be spent within The Institute, where you will learn core consulting skills and gain a broad understanding of everything we do at Capgemini Invent within a feed-back rich environment.

Following your time in The Institute, you will join the Analytics and AI Academy. The team structure of the Analytics and AI Academy is as follows:
