Accenture do "core ____ school" [analyst, consultant, manager] in Chicago. All new analyst start out with 3 weeks training prior to this core school.
If you go down the tech route you will receive courses leading to accredidation in Java, XML, OOP, Rational Rose, .Net and whatever else you are doing.
You can generally work towards accredidation professionally in your chosen career eg I'll be going for Chartered Engineer with IEE in IT & Software.
One criticism lots of people have is that while you have a training budget in dollars per head per year: you always have to bill your time to something. So the training bill code is used when you're maybe at a conference or receiving a presentation on some new technology.
My inside contact, in a technical consultancy role has certainly received lots of specific preparatory training.
