A Hong Kong study abroad experience is even better with a full-time internship (see for yourself in the video below the story)!
Offered in coordination with our partners, Elite Intern, a Hong Kong-based internship program manager, the Hong Kong Internship Program guarantees a substantive work placement to help you develop professional skills, jump-start your career, and increase your competitiveness in today's job market.
Why Hong Kong
Before you even touch down in Hong Kong, you'll be enchanted by the view - hundreds of skyscrapers stacked along green peaks and islands dotting the surrounding sea.
But you'll know you've truly arrived when you stroll Hong Kong's busy streets. Home to a large expatriate community, as a Special Administrative Region of China and former British Colony, Hong Kong is a fusion of cultures and languages. It’s also a top international trade and finance center attracting business and people from all over the world and providing seemingly endless possibilities for a summer internship. Together, this blend of cultures and business clout makes for an exciting intern abroad experience.
Though the program is new, the Hong Kong Internship Program will run similarly to our other full-time, summer international internships and include:
Eight weeks of work experience for up to 40 hours per week in one of the world's renowned business cities
A variety of internship placement fields, including, but not limited to: Accounting, Art & Design, Fashion, Finance, International Trade, IT, Journalism, Marketing, NGOs, Public Relations, and more!
Secure, comfortable, and easily-accessible housing in serviced apartments on Hong Kong Island
3- or 6-credit Leading Across Cultures Internship Seminar
Predeparture support, including guidance on the application, visas, professional materials, and cultural expectations
On-site orientation, cultural events, and optional field trips in and around Hong Kong
Application Deadline The Summer 2018 deadline for the Hong Kong Summer Internship Program is Friday, February 9, 2018.
