The FCIP is structured to safeguard and encourage the holistic exposure of interns to an array of tasks and requisite skill-building that are fundamental to the role of a consultant.


  • Long term / full time internships in established consulting firms in Tokyo are few and far between, compared to typical week-long or day-long internships offered as a part of the job selection process.
  • The FCIP is an internship that allows for interns to take part in real-life projects at real time, unlike most internships that are structured based on mock cases / projects / tasks.
  • Necessary skills for consulting are often acquired over time, with practice and experience. Engaging in projects here at the FCIP will allow for interns to be appropriately challenged and nurtured with the positive mindset for their potential extended career here at Frost & Sullivan.
