Cultural immersion & community in Shanghai
The Shanghai Experience
One of the most incredible benefits of interning abroad is being immersed in a diverse and inspiring community. The Intern Group’s international community is made up of the world’s most passionate and talented students and professionals, who come from over 150 countries around the globe. In a city as international as Shanghai, interns will truly be immersed in a global setting and will have the chance to make both local and international connections. In addition to creating valuable professional contacts, interns make lifelong friends and mentors.
Our full-time local team in Shanghai knows the city inside out and will show you the best of it. The Shanghai internship program includes the following events:
