BHP students are encouraged to apply for The Accenture Leadership Program, a four-week leadership seminar series led by Accenture Executives. The program equips emerging student leaders with proven leadership techniques, enabling participants to be more effective leaders on campus and within their community. This year marks the eleventh year of the recently re-vamped program. With topics and techniques taken from Accenture’s internal development program for consulting executives, this is an opportunity you don’t want to miss with one of BHP’s corporate partners.
Lisa Feng, current BHP and Finance senior, participated in last year’s program, where she learned leadership skills and concepts related to personal strengths, working on great teams, and leaving a legacy. “I enjoyed learning alongside a diverse group of students from across the Forty Acres,” she said, calling ALP a “one-of-a-kind” experience. “I had never met most of the other participants before, so it was inspiring to hear about all of the unique perspectives and experiences they each brought to the table.”
ALP isn’t just for students in the McCombs School of Business. Students from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply and participate. Last year, students from Engineering, Fine Arts, and Natural Sciences, ranging from freshmen to seniors were among the participants.
Tamara Fields, a managing director based out of the Austin office and UT Austin alumna, is a program presenter each year on one of the most popular topics covered: Social Styles. Individuals each have their own way of thinking, acting, and making decisions, and Social Styles aims to define those unique qualities. Each year, ALP participants are asked to distribute the Social Styles questionnaire to their peers, mentors, and fellow leaders. The input is then analyzed to reveal to each participant’s unique social style that indicates unique aspects about the way they communicate and lead. Each ALP session covers a unique leadership topic and includes interactive activities, facilitated discussion, and time to network and interact with top consulting executives.
In Spring 2018, Accenture will again be hosting Accenture Leadership Program on campus. The program runs Mondays from March 19 to April 9. Full-time undergraduate students graduating between Dec ‘18 and May ‘21 are encouraged to apply – the application opens February 1, 2018. We invite emerging leaders, idea generators, and strategic thinkers to apply for the 2018 Accenture Leadership Program.
