Beacon is a comprehensive business educational experience
To call Beacon an "internship" would be to ignore all its facets that transcend a conventional internship. Beacon is much more than working somewhere 8-5. The experience is much more comprehensive and profound.
Beacon is for undergraduates and graduates who want to do more with their summers.
Whether they're interested in commercial businesses, non-profits/NGOs, or governmental entities, Beacon Fellows help make a lasting impact in international organizations.
The Beacon Fellowship is about doing hands-on, autonomous work that actually changes things and makes a difference. Therefore, we consult for organizations that actually need consultation, veering away from large organizations that tend to give only theoretical or relatively inconsequential work.
The Fellowship is more than a consulting project; it's a comprehensive business education program that consists in:
Traveling to a European city to work on-site on a real-world Consulting project
Working autonomously and with 10-15 similarly smart and driven undergrads
Receiving training and guidance from an experienced professional
Presenting to client leadership
Consulting: The crossroads of all business skills

Read some of our favorite articles from Harvard Business Review, Bloomberg, Fortune, and others on the skills we develop in our Fellows through the consulting projects.
