Montgomery College is pleased to announce an exciting new opportunity with Accenture to ensure that students have the Skills to Succeed in the workforce and in life. The program, which begins this fall, will feature Accenture executives as guest speakers and facilitators in the classroom to motivate and educate students on the opportunities available to them, as well as to build basic professional skills. The speakers will also demonstrate how their diverse personal and professional backgrounds helped them achieve their goals in life.

The Skills to Succeed program will provide an opportunity for students to participate in the following:
* A four-part interactive lectures series entitled "So You Want to Be A CEO ... Skills to Succeed;"
* Accenture's office-wide meeting/program and day of service in downtown DC;
* A capstone visit to Accenture offices in Reston, Virginia, for a final session and tour; and
* Job Start 101 ( ) Computer-based module...Smart Tips and Real World Training

Working together with Accenture, the instructional deans of business, the business department chairs, faculty and staff from counseling and advising, the Macklin Business Institute, Student Employment Services, the Office of Institutional Advancement, the Office of the Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and the Office of the Senior Vice President for Student Services, and staff and administrators from Workforce Development & Continuing Education have worked to develop and coordinate the program for fall 2011. We anticipate an expansion of this program for spring 2012.

The effort is part of Accenture's Skills to Succeed initiative, which plans to equip 250,000 people around the world by 2015 with the skills to get a job or build a business. Accenture's Skills to Succeed initiative is supported by Bill Green, Accenture Chairman and community college graduate.

<b>The program kickoff is scheduled for Friday, September 16, 2011, at the Germantown Campus at 11 a.m., in HT 216. </b>
