Is MBA necessary to grow at Accenture, if I start as an Associate Software Engineer?

No. The following are essential for advancement at Accenture:

  1. Effectively completing your day-to-day tasks.
  2. Being the best player on the team without being a jerk.
  3. Assisting others in their learning and development.
  4. Junior-level certifications include ASDA, OCJP, and ISTQB.
  5. Senior-level certifications such as PMP, Prince, and other management credentials.

An MBA becomes when operating at the M level (Manager level) becomes “valuable.” It may be slightly less valuable at the Associate Manager level, but you get the picture.

  • Also, it will take you approximately 6-8 years to reach the Associate Manager level and about ten years to get the Manager level, when an MBA will genuinely begin to matter.

  • However, starting in year 5, when you are presumably a Team Lead, you can begin taking Accenture certifications and courses. To improve the project, bring in new ideas. Pitch ideas to senior management and gain high visibility to help you grow.
