Beacon...gave me the chance to work with a startup and provide real value...With the skills I developed through this experience and having thoroughly enjoyed the work, I went through the recruiting process and will be interning for a top consulting firm next summer.

[Beacon] gave me really valuable experience to add to my resume...and helped get me in the door to McKinsey...I have just accepted an internship offer with McKinsey & Company for the summer. I am so excited for this opportunity and am very grateful that Beacon gave me the gateway to this field!

I’ll be interning with Booz Allen Hamilton this summer in their San Diego office! I’m super excited. Honestly [Beacon] was the big reason I started seriously considering the firm. Thanks so much for your help and mentorship! I’m glad so much good has come from doing the Beacon Fellowship.

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.

Parent Testimonial

Sam loved the international aspect of the Beacon Fellowship. He embraced not knowing the language. Getting by and thriving in a new culture was a remarkably fun challenge for him. He made lifelong friends (often he and his friends would go the beach after work). Beacon did a magnificent job of selecting not just the best young minds but also personable, engaging and caring people. The host company and mentors/group leaders provided practical and meaningful work. They taught and encouraged but also trusted that Sam and his team would work diligently and provide a creative, viable and valuable solution for the client. Sam wrote only a few texts and made very few calls from Spain. As a parent I could tell he was fully engaged in his work, happy and thriving.

“Being on site with the client every day, my team and I had full access to all the materials we needed, and we were able to learn so much more about the industry.”
