We are looking for an intern that supports the Accenture Strategy & Consulting Leadership team to identify new opportunities in the Communications, Media and High-Tech industry.

Accenture Strategy & Consulting is the driving force in helping companies answer such questions. You will advise senior management in their next steps – based on data analysis, experience, expertise and an innovative approach. Together with a diverse team of experts, you will challenge current industry obstacles and find the key solution for clients in their current markets: Surpassing the disruption and consolidating future success for organizations.
