Accenture’s University Mentoring Program strives to align motivated students who have expressed a strong interest in consulting with some of the best industry professionals. Program mentors inspire creativity and independence and help mentees set goals and develop specific skill sets. In addition, students involved in the University Mentoring Program will engage in lasting professional relationships that will help the individual expand their professional network.

Members of the University Mentoring Program formally meet twice a semester to engage in co-curricular activities that help facilitate initial interactions between mentors and mentees.  The open structure of the program provides the freedom for mentor pairs to engage in a relationship that best suits the pair. Through their involvement in the program, students in the University Mentoring Program will gain a distinct competitive advantage when entering the workforce.

We are accepting applications from juniors and seniors for the Fall 2012 Semester. Please join us for the information session or to get an application email Program Coordinator Madison Cooke (madison.cooke@accenture.com). Applications are due Monday, October 1st, 2012.
