What is the Accelerate Programme Business Technology Pathway?

The programme is designed for talented graduates or those currently working who are looking for a role where they can combine technology, data science and creative design to help clients solve complex business and technology challenges. The programme comes with exposure to a range of sectors, after which, members of the programme will commence specialising in Business Technology.
The Focus of Your Role
As an Associate Consultant you will embark on a challenging and exciting journey where you will develop key skills that help our clients change the way they work, behave and achieve their goals.

Many of our graduates enjoy contributing to thought leadership, propositions and event management.
