What Our Members Say

See how ModernGuild has impacted the lives of graduates across the country.

"MG to me wasn't just a consulting case preparation program. During the program, I received a mentor who was genuinely committed and interested in my success. I would definitely recommend MG to every student who wants to enter the consulting world, and I promise you whatever level you are at you will learn something."

Olivier Munyeshyaka
Morehouse College

"My meetings with my consulting coach taught me a lot about the consulting industry and he confirmed my interest with that career path. I still keep in touch with him after the program!"

Kassandra Madulka
Cornell University

"The ModernGuild Accelerator was a fantastic program that went far beyond just focusing on technical skills. It helped me think comprehensively about my long-term personal and career development, pairing me up with a phenomenal coach who provided prescient and unbiased advice on a wide-range of career related issues."

Frequently Asked Questions

What key dates should I be aware of?

What key dates should I be aware of?

The Priority Deadline for Summer 2018 Accelerators is February 8, 2018 and the Final Deadline is March 1, 2018. By completing your application before the Priority Deadline, you will not only receive a prioritized review for Summer 2018 Accelerators, but you will also become eligible for consideration in several Boot Camps hosted by our Company Partners in April. As with our Accelerators, all Boot Camp offer decisions will be made by our partners, not ModernGuild. 

Sponsorship announcements will begin on April 15, and all Accelerators will run between May and July. Keep in mind, we've designed our summer programming so that it can work flexibly around any other responsibilities you may have. You are only expected to commit around 5 hours/week to ModernGuild, which means you're welcome to participate on top of another internship or job.

What is the ModernGuild application comprised of?

What is the ModernGuild application comprised of?

The application consists of 3 major steps: Common App, Resume, Industry App(s). The first captures your basic professional/academic/personal history as well as your general industry preferences. The second is straightforward – just upload your resume! And the third, depending on which industry you've indicated an interest in, captures your motivation and existing knowledge of that space. This is done through a combination of ranking questions, short answer responses and recorded videos. Keep in mind that the short answer and video sections are simply an opportunity for you to showcase your experiences and tell us why you are a good fit for ModernGuild, please don't be intimidated by them.

To get started, please create an account through our website. You will be guided through the process from there! 

By participating, am I obligated to accept a job offer?

By participating, am I obligated to accept a job offer?

Nope, you are not obligated to accept an internship or job offer. However, given the demand for any given Accelerator, we do hope that you will only enroll if you have a sincere interest in working with the sponsoring company. In order to keep things fair, we also ask that all enrolled students abstain from accepting any other job offers until 1 month after the program's completion.
