Hi,

I am trying to understand what the exit opportunities are from working at Accenture as a Strategy Consultant within the Banking practice? I have tried linkedin but my results seem to be slightly obscure.

Would like to know your opinions/thoughts.

Hey,

Which office/location are you referring to?

I have provided a lot of information previously on Accenture in the Q&A forum. Check out this and embedded threads to check if these give you some more information:

Hello!

Many of the times, consultants find very juicy exit oportunities within clients, so in your case, baking clients in whichever geography you are targetting.

You will always be most valued for the experience you already have. As a strategy consultant in Banking - your best options will be to move to an in-house role in a financial institution. You will also be a good candidate for adjacent industries such as Insurance etc. Anything else will require more effort and networking for you to market your skills and convince folks of the value you bring.

Best,

Hi there,

This is a great excuse for networking!

Apart from that, logically, your exit opportunities are going to be anything strategy related and banking related. Don't overthink this!
