The Beacon Fellowship is a member of the Business Education Alliance of the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the leading organization for business education accreditation.
In the spring of 2016, our founders were fueled by a desire to solve the problem they faced in undergrad — a one-sided business education that focuses on theory without real-world application. So, they took the skills they developed at McKinsey, BCG, and Booz Allen Hamilton, and created The Beacon Fellowship.
Since then, we've launched multiple successful programs, hiring current and former McKinsey, Bain, & BCG consultants who equip our Fellows with real, tangible skills, and help them to secure & excel in interviews, internships and jobs. Our Fellows have returned home with more than something to put on their resume — they've left as fundamentally better business people.
And that is our mission: to prepare undergraduate students to become exceptional business people by creating a space for learning and mentorship through global, high-impact, real consulting projects.
“the significant educational value of the Beacon Fellowship…is helping to educate the next generation of management consultants.
Brian Whalen | Chief Academic Officer | The Beacon Fellowship
Our vision is to be the world’s leading non-academic business institution for pre-professionals.
As we look to the future, we're eager to expand and deepen our expertise, so as to continually improve the Fellowship and deliver more value to our Fellows. We envision a time in the next 2-5 years in which thousands of students will be able to attend a Beacon program, accelerate their careers, and then, as alumni, pay it forward to future Beacon Fellows and the world.
