The Young Leadership Program (YLP) is a two-year full-time consulting program that develops exceptional, young local Ethiopian talent into real leaders.

You will work as part of a client project team, collaborating with colleagues and clients to solve their toughest business problems. At the end of the program, high-performing fellows progress into a business analyst role.

What You'll Do

You will work in teams of typically 3 - 5 consultants, playing an active role in all aspects of the client engagement. 

This will include gathering and analyzing information, formulating and testing hypotheses, and developing and communicating recommendations. You will also have the opportunity to present results to client management and implement recommendations in collaboration with client team members.

This support includes a partner from your local office or practice assigned to you to help guide your career as well as formal training. Additionally, you will receive guidance and support from your local office in the selection of client projects, helping you to develop your skills and build your network.
