Student Story

Andy Wang
Business Intern at an International Entrepreneurship Services Company
Shenzhen, China

"I have gained the type of professional experience that I think will benefit me in the future and have had many great learning opportunities related to my work. Aside from the two events that I helped organize and the meetings that occurred along with them, I have also been able to attend three large summits/conferences, one of which I attended entirely on my own, read and reviewed important documents related to future projects that my company intends to pursue, and translated multiple articles that will eventually be posted onto our company’s website. In being able to attend these three events, my internship organization has been able to connect with potential clients to set up future meetings, as well as learning more information about future innovative projects that will be happening in the near future in or around Shenzhen."

Academic Details

Students earn up to 12 quarter credits through 2 required courses for their 8-week full time internships: 

Course #1: GlobalWorks International Internship (up to 8 credits, upper division): This course helps students connect their academic studies to practical applications. Students develop professional skills while gaining exposure to the dynamic culture and lifestyle in their host country. The internship credits may be able to count toward department or major/minor requirement.

Course #2: Intercultural Communication (4 credits, lower division, online): This course is designed to provide ongoing support to students doing internships abroad. Students will observe, explore and investigate the core cultural values in their host country during the internship, conduct comparison in the differences between their host and home country, and develop critical thinking skills and culture learning strategies. A weekly assignment for the online course includes: reading assignments, group discussions and a weekly journal. 

Due to the intense nature of interning, we don't recommend students enroll for any other classes during the internship period.
