Accenture is celebrating its tenth anniversary of the startup of operations in Rosario, one of its three strategic poles where it develops its activities in Argentina, together with La Plata and the City of Buenos Aires.
Its history there started with 10 employees, and today they are more than 300 collaborators working for different industries, from financial services to energy, passing from insurance, media and entertainment, chemicals and even communication, for 9 Spanish-, Portuguese- and English-speaking countries.

In addition, its multiple universities of renowned academic level are breeding ground of huge prestige for the continuous recruiting of talents by the company.

This tenth anniversary encourages us to continue growing in our digital and innovation agenda,” he concluded.
