2016 Accenture U.S. Innovation Challenge

Accenture is thrilled to announce the start of the 2016 U.S. Undergraduate Innovation Challenge – an event combining hands-on consulting experience with the opportunity to make a positive impact in the community and land an Accenture internship.

Sign up by Monday, February 8th for your chance to participate.

About the Competition

The Accenture Innovation Challenge is a multi-round event that combines hands-on consulting experience with the opportunity to make a positive impact on society. Students will work as teams to collaboratively develop a solution for a case based on a real-world challenge faced by our non-profit partner, World Wildlife Fund (WWF®). Students will apply individually and Accenture will make the final team assignments. We will ensure that all teams are comprised of students from a wide variety of skills and backgrounds.

If selected to participate in this multi-round event, students will be partnered with Accenture coaches and use their analytical, strategic thinking, and creative problem solving skills to innovate – and possibly help implement – solutions to real-world challenges that are faced by our non-profit partner, World Wildlife Fund (WWF®). Details about challenge dates, prizes and eligibility are available on our website.

Only students from select schools and programs are eligible to compete, and Accenture is pleased to extend this opportunity to GA Tech students. Please help us share information about this opportunity by forwarding the email below to members of your student organization who may be interested in participating.
