"To build better businesspeople through real-world, hands-on experiential business education."


Our goal from Day 1 has always been to prepare the student interested in business to succeed.

Universities do a wonderful job of providing a foundational business education. Our role is to pick up where they leave off: to inculcate in our students the real-world skills, perspectives, and experience they need to transition smoothly and effectively into other internships and the full-time professional world.

Building Forward

Currently, the Beacon Fellowship operates exclusively in Madrid, Spain. As we continue to perfect the Fellowship, we will soon expand into other countries around the globe, as well as deepen and broaden the partnerships we maintain.

The Beacon Fellowship will, within the next three years, operate around the world, providing to hundreds of students a year the chance to do something real, something meaningful, and something lasting.

We are immensely proud of the distance we've gone thus far, and eagerly look forward to the future.
