The Beacon Fellowship - Finance Track
Note: The Beacon Finance track is separate from the core Beacon Fellowship, which focuses primarily on consulting.
What is the Finance track?
The Beacon Finance track is a pilot program for undergraduates who want to develop the skills for a career in finance. After the program, Fellows will be able to show tangible finance experience that will set them apart when interviewing for future internships/jobs. While they are gaining this knowledge and experience, Fellows will be able to use their free time to explore the culture and cuisine of beautiful Madrid, Spain. The program consists of two parts: training and a finance project.
Beacon Finance Fellows begin the program with 2 weeks of intense, investment bank-level, financial modeling training from an experienced finance professional. Whether you’ve taken multiple finance and accounting courses or none at all, this is for you.
Fellows will also get the chance to work on a real, tangible finance project for a real business client for 4 weeks. They will be mentored and guided by a finance professional with experience at a top global professional services firm.
How much does it cost?
The program fee of $4999 covers housing, intense training, dedicated finance mentor, local transportation, travel health insurance, and some meals.
