Why take an Internship or Language Program in China?
Over the past century China has endured much political, social and economic upheaval, and has emerged from this turbulence to become the world’s fastest growing economic superpower. From the fall of the last imperial dynasty in 1911 to the economic ‘opening up’ in 1978, which sparked China’s meteoric global rise, the country has become a subject of significant global interest and investment.
China has a permanent seat on the UN Security Council as one of its founding members in 1945, and was accepted into the World Trade Organization (WTO) in 2001. It is clear that China has taken its place as a major international power both economically and politically.
