Hong Kong

China: Hong Kong

Spend eight weeks living and working in one of the most cosmopolitan and diverse cities in the world on the international business internship in Hong Kong. During this summer experience, you will apply the theories and concepts you’ve learned in class to an international working environment, learning and practicing the professional customs, behaviors and norms of another culture.

Since you’ll be working with other international students on this program, you’ll expand your network while gaining valuable professional experience. The skills you develop on this internship will transform you as a leader and give you a distinct competitive advantage in the job market. Along with practicing fundamental workplace skills, you will demonstrate that you can work in a diverse environment, adapt to change, be a flexible problem solver and integrate successfully into a diverse and cross-cultural team—all high-demand skills for today’s globally minded employers.

Hong Kong is a vibrant commercial and cultural capital. It is one of the world’s financial hubs, an important center for multinational corporations and a gateway to China. With over 7 million people, Hong Kong is densely populated with impressive transportation networks and soaring high rises.

You will be placed with a company—60-70% of the internship placements are with Fortune 500 and 1000 companies—and will work Monday through Friday during the company’s normal working hours for eight weeks of the program.
