Chengdu, China Summer Intership
Want to really stand out from your peers when it comes time to look for a job? Make a huge difference upgrading your resume by interning in China this summer. This program offers a unique opportunity with placements guaranteed in a professional practice internship working on a team based project for an international company expanding in China (e.g., General Motors, Chevron, LegoLand, Carlsberg, Ecco, etc.) or Chinese companies trying to expand their business globally. Students will get hands-on experience working on a specific project for an international company in China. Teams will include 3-4 Auburn students paired with Chinese students to complete the project for a truly international work experience. This program is appropriate for all business majors and minors, as well as related majors (Public relations, hospitality management, fashion merchandising, etc.) as teams will be created to include complimentary skill sets needed to complete the project for the client. We have spots for engineers and technical disciplines as well so ask about your opportunity.
The program will include significant travel and cultural opportunities. No foreign language skills required or assumed as each team will have a language coach/interpreter and guide for the duration of the program. Travel will include the ancient cultural capital Beijing (Great Wall, Forbidden City, Summer Palace, Silk Market, etc.), the financial center Shanghai (the Bund, Jade Buddha Temple, Nanjing Lu, etc.), and Chengdu (the “most Chinese place in China”). Work assignments will be in Chengdu, effectively the gateway to Western China—growing at twice the rate of Shanghai and Beijing and a strategic hub for international companies expanding in China. An Auburn faculty member will be on site and supervising the travel and projects for the duration of the program.
