Accenture, UniSA to launch digital business academy

Professional services company Accenture and the University of South Australia have forged a joint venture to accelerate the adoption of business education and digital skills in Australia.

The Innovation Academy in Digital Business will launch in 2022, providing bespoke innovative curriculum and training programs.

The initiative will combine the skills and expertise of Accenture’s global workforce and UniSA’s established position in online education.

The academy’s first offering will be a Bachelor in Digital Business program, which has been custom-built based on real-world Accenture material and case studies. Enrolment will be live from mid-2022.

The second offering involves the upskilling and reskilling of established workforces in digital business practices.

Focused on the intersection between technology and business, this professional development component will offer real-time practical upskilling programs featuring tailored digital business training modules.

UniSA Vice Chancellor Professor David Lloyd said the university is “delighted” to be working with Accenture on the development of the new academy.

“This will be a global powerhouse in educating a new breed of business professional, informed by best practice and insight from one of the world’s leading technology and strategic consulting companies,” he said.

“Our students will be gaining invaluable skills and will be not just studying with the best, they’ll be learning from the best as well.”
