Spend eight weeks interning for a company in Hong Kong, one of the most cosmopolitan and diverse cities in the world. 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.

Interns will work with a team in Hong Kong and will have frequent engagement with their supervisor and working teams. Interns will also interact frequently with our internship provider, Global Academic Ventures.

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 for eight weeks at your placement company for 30-35 hours per week. .
