This internship was such an insightful and engaging experience, which taught me the skills needed to become a business consultant. Every session was jam-packed with useful information and tips while also being fun and engaging.

Catherine,
Luxembourg, Business Work Experience Internship

The internship was amazing and the Mentor explained everything very well. The way I learned autonomously, had access to high quality research material, and learned to work with people I didn't know truly made the experience.
