Accenture May Hop on IPO Bandwagon
The firm hopes to decide within two months whether or not it will make the public offering. Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley Dean Witter are front-runners to handle the possible IPO.
Andersen Worldwide divested itself of its consultancy arm last year in a court battle  that left the consulting group free to pursue its own interests, but in search of a new name. The company became known as Accenture as of January 1, 2001.
