Accenture Leadership Center

Learn. Practice. Lead.

The Wisconsin School of Business was one of the first business schools in the nation to prioritize the development of leaders and create its own in-house leadership center. The Accenture Leadership Center (ALC) encourages students to develop leadership skills by creating opportunities to learn, practice, and lead.

  • Develop leadership and management skills
  • Collaborate with other motivated peers
  • Participate in workshops and competitions
  • Build your résumé

Get Involved


The ALC offers a variety of interactive workshops aimed at building better leaders. All our workshops count towards one of our Business Badger Badges and the campus-wide Leadership Certificate.

Case Competitions

Case competitions let students test their skills using real-life business situations. Working in teams, students analyze a business case, prepare a proposed solution and present to a panel of judges.

Service Days

We believe good leaders should take time to give back to their community. The ALC provides low-commitment Service Days each semester. We provide the transportation and food for all participants.

Leadership Conferences

Leadership Conferences provide an opportunity for you to delve in deeper to a variety of leadership topics, while sharing your own experiences and networking with your peers.

Business Badger Badges

The ALC is home to Business Badger Badges—a cocurricular program that allows you to earn a credential for participating in workshops, experiences, and reflection opportunities. Business Badger Badges map out pathways for you to gain a deep level of understanding and practice in a certain skill or leadership area. You attend workshops, build a portfolio of new tools, and earn a badge to display on your résumé or LinkedIn profile.

“Students not only talk about leadership in class, but go out and find ways to lead as part of the program. Going into job interviews and being able to talk about how I was a mentor and a leader, while helping build those skills in others, really brought home the value of the Wisconsin BBA [Undergraduate] Program and the impact.”
