In four short weeks, you will handle multiple real-world consulting projects in the Accelerator program. Applying what you learn in class, you’ll work in teams to devise solutions to business challenges facing real companies. Then you’ll present those ideas to each company's key executives, sometimes even the CEO (people you’d never meet in an ordinary internship).
