Comprehensive Business Experiential Education.
Our goal has always been to provide motivated undergraduates more than just an internship. Thus, there arose the need for a more all-encompassing term.
Beacon Fellows are undergrads who believe they can do more with their summers than make copies or get coffee.
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 internship; it's a comprehensive business education program that consists in:
- Traveling to Madrid, Spain to work on-site on a real-world Consulting project
- Working autonomously and with 6-12 similarly smart and driven undergrads
- Receiving training and guidance from an experienced professional
- Presenting to client leadership and seeing the impact over the months
Consulting: The crossroads of all business skills
Even those who may not want to go into Consulting full-time benefit immensely from consulting experiences, wherein they develop the skills employers want most. 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. Read here as to why consulting is the perfect fit.
