Albert Janer (Barcelona, 1989) loves big challenges and innovative solutions. He studied at ESADE from 2007 to 2012, earning a Bachelor and Master of Business Administration. During his time as a student, he co-founded a student association called the Finance & Economy Group (FEG) and organised lectures by industry and economy leaders. While working in Accenture’s Barcelona offices, Albert met a New York–based Accenture executive through ESADE Alumni. The rest is history: Albert and his wife Núria – also an ESADE graduate – moved to Manhattan shortly thereafter.
Albert enjoys meeting new people and creating impactful initiatives within organisations. Anyone who talks to him perceives his deep commitment to what he believes in; anyone who spends time with him sees that he is a natural mobiliser. Since moving to the country of networking, he has been using this gift to the fullest.
As a management consultant for Accenture in New York, Albert specialises in finance and risk services, working on projects related to operating models, data management, reporting, the implementation of new technologies such as blockchain and artificial intelligence, etc. To hone his leadership skills, he takes part in Accenture’s Emerging Leaders Program.
Albert maintains close ties to ESADE Alumni, serving as Vice President of the association’s New York Chapter, one of the world’s largest and most active alumni groups. In his work for the New York Chapter, Albert’s main goals include promoting women’s empowerment and leadership in the ESADE community and in society at large and encouraging networking among globally renowned executives.
A network for a lifetime

Behind the scenes with the Accenture Finance & Risk Management Consultant
Fight for it
Albert is a person who never misses out on an opportunity. He hopped on a flight from Barcelona to New York to meet with an Accenture executive in Manhattan that very same day and returned to Barcelona several hours later.
ESADE Alumni New York Chapter
As Vice President of the ESADE Alumni New York Chapter, Albert is deeply committed to encouraging networking and organising lectures with globally renowned experts, thereby having an impact on every level, both socially and institutionally.
Born in the USA
Albert has dreamed of living in the United States ever since he was a kid, and his experience studying abroad at the University of Texas confirmed this desire. Albert buckled down and worked hard until he achieved this goal by moving to one of the world’s greatest cities: New York.
ESADE partner, Accenture partner
Albert met his wife Núria Rosàs while studying at ESADE. Núria now works for Accenture as well, although not in the same department as Albert. The couple share a passion for consulting and travel.
The beauty of consulting
When asked to devise a solution to a need, Albert jumps right into the challenge. His approach is to find a way to “click” with the client – understand their culture, their values and their way of working – because that’s when the right answer becomes clear.
“If you want something, think big and then fight for it. It’s very important that you focus all your energy and be consistent – that’s when you’ll see that things are going to happen.”
