Graduate program for engineers: key steps
Step one: four weeks of learning experience in Geneva
During your time in Geneva, you will acquire the skills needed for being a successful consultant alongside other new starters. At AKKA we value innovation, hence we will take you through the process of bringing an innovative idea to life. You will have a chance of pitching your own innovation project to the board and if proves valuable for the business, it could be developed further into a product. You will get a chance of meeting key industry stakeholders, who will provide you with an invaluable insight into their sectors. Alongside this, we will help to develop your soft skills like agility, communication, presentation, language mastering and similar. Some technical aspects will be introduced during this time as well, and those, who are required a certain level of foreign language skills will be provided with lessons by qualified teachers.

Step two: on-the-job experience
Over half of your learning journey will be based around developing skills through on-the-job experiences you will gain at AKKA entities in Germany, Belgium or France. You will have a chance to acquire new skills, or improve existing ones, as well as, try yourself in an entirely different field. During the entire 12 months, you will have access to our sophisticated online learning platform with over 2500 high-quality courses. Moreover, to improve your language skills even further, unlimited language live sessions will be available to you at a time most convenient for you.

We have a lot of projects related to Big Data, AI and IoT and today we can efficiently handle these projects with the integration of consultants from the AKKAdemy.
