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.
