Business Internships Locations

Business is a thriving sector across our Program locations, with popular business destinations including Ho Chi Minh City and Shanghai.

Business across our Program Locations

  • China has huge export activity. Since China joined the World Trade Organization in 2001, it has consistently enjoyed double digit year-on-year export growth rates. It has now overtaken the US as the World’s biggest trading nation in value of exports and imports.
  • Manchester was the World’s first industrialised city.  It has also been globally recognised as a “beta” city, and many multinational companies deem it essential to have an office in the city.  What better city to get international business experience!
  • With political stability and economic growth, Vietnam has received honorable titles in recent years such as Tiger State and Next Eleven.
  • China has 3 of the top 10 companies in the world by market capitalization: Beijing PetroChina, Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, and China Mobile. Learn from industry giants during your international business internship in China.
  • Oral agreements in Japan have as much weight as contracts. This is because Japan has a relationship-driven society, it is the quality of relationships in business that will determine events rather than legal necessities. Our alumni tell us that this is the type of unique knowledge and experience that is the differentiator on their CVs for years to come.
  • China is not just a manufacturing hub. The new 5-year plan will aim to shift the economic focus from export driven to domestic demand driven.
