Accenture definitely pays if you're in strategy but it's a reimbursement. Meaning you're not committed until you graduate and go back to Accenture. Then they will give you like a $120,000 for your first paycheck.

The Houston office had an orientation about this last year. People who are in the top 30% of ratings for consultants and up get tuition reimbursement as well as the option to work ACN part time or go to school full time. That being said, I don't know how this works with the new rating system.

Yea paying for school and supporting yourself while not getting paid doesn't appeal to me

^deloitte also has a tuition reimbursement program.

I heard Accenture will only pay if you're part of digital, is that true?

No... Would be surprised if they paid for you in digital. More likely will pay if you are strategy.

Accenture person that was the last to comment what office are you based out of?

^oh and ACN will only pay for certain B-schools. Not all MBAs are created equal.

Nice, I'm in Houston as well not in strategy but passed this information along to an analyst friend of mine and it completely made his day. Thank you for passing this along. This app is pretty useful after all.

Right now the program is for ACN strategy only... Trying to get MC to sponsor as well.

I know it's an age old debate. Chasing the partner title vs exit to industry, which is better? I want to know about your experience or what you've seen. How did it work out for you, did you like/were you happy with your choice, any regret along the way, what would you have done differently... anything and everything you can share for a tax manager who is considering if it's finally the time to exit would be appreciated.
