Enjoy being abroad.
On weekends, project work is put on hold to allow Fellows to navigate the culture around them.
In addition to the valuable international business experience that Fellows gain abroad, the Beacon experience also aims to foster the development of cultural perspective. By exploring their host city, engaging with locals, and enjoying the delights and challenges of an immersive experience, Fellows deepen and broaden their understanding of the people and lifestyles that shape the business environment.
On weekends, Fellows enjoy being abroad in two main ways: Saturday excursions and Sunday free time.
On Saturdays, Fellows enjoy organized excursions to nearby cities, museums, startups and other local attractions.

In the evenings after work and on Sundays, Fellows have free time to explore on their own or with other members of their cohort.
