From Beacon to top consulting firms like McKinsey and Booz Allen:
Spend four weeks gaining impactful consulting experience at client sites in Europe or D.C.
Conventional summer consulting internships are designed to boost the company’s bottom line, but often, interns leave with the feeling that they actually have not learned or made a difference. Beacon is designed to provide Fellows with a rewarding and challenging summer by engaging them directly in impactful consulting projects with international firms. Each cohort of Fellows is guided and accompanied by a Project Lead, a consultant who has worked for a top firm.
