ACE Intensive Training Program

The three-month intensive training portion of the ACE Program is comprised of three main pillars:

  • Consulting Skills: this includes training in soft skills, presentation skills, business acumen, networking and travel tips.
  • SAP Technical Skills: you’ll learn how to set up and configure SAP to meet various requirements.
  • *Mock Project*: you’ll have the opportunity to tie all of the above activities together in a safe, simulated environment where you will configure SAP for a mock company and go through all the phases of an implementation from blueprinting to go-live!

What Happens after Training?

Once you’ve completed the initial three-month intensive training program, you will receive mentorship and guidance to ensure your success in launching your consulting career. You’ll also have opportunities to “shadow” senior consultants so that you can learn by watching what they do. Continuous learning sessions are offered to expand and grow your knowledge over the course of the program.
