And that’s not all

IBM Consulting Experience offers participants a unique opportunity to experience life as a consultant. Throughout the sessions you will gain invaluable insights into the world of work and also take part in a team-based case study of a typical consulting scenario; there will be a prize for outstanding performance.

It’s not all work and no play, there will also be plenty of time to relax and socialise with some of our current graduates and senior consultants during the more informal sessions.
