“I really enjoyed the fact that everyone is so approachable and treated me as a real fellow colleague, being invited to side activities, such as community meetings, events and workshops. During my internship, I also had the chance to participate in an annual internal Innovation Challenge where everyone within Accenture is being stimulated to come up with innovative ideas and receive coaching along the way to think and act as a startup. They immediately took me in their team and gave me the opportunity to come up with ideas and have my say.”
– Paul, Brussels

“My advice to other students would be to apply for an internship abroad. I myself had the chance to live in another country, get to know another culture and meet lovely people while learning on the job. Everyone should have this experience!”
– Eef, Mauritius
