The Beacon Fellowship is four weeks of developing business and consulting skills under expert guidance (consultants come from Bain, McKinsey, etc.) for a partner organization in Madrid. For me, the international exposure and opportunities to travel were fantastic additions to what would have been, even in the US, a very helpful intensive internship environment. Fellows worked on meaningful projects for the client organizations, and several Fellows even received return offers from the clients. I would recommend the fellowship to those considering business and consulting seriously, with the lone caveat being that in many cases, you may have to fundraise to afford the cost.
What would you improve about this program?
Additional help with fundraising through resource referral, etc. would be fantastic!
Would you recommend this program?
