Foreigners and locals alike are taking advantage of Asia burgeoning economy, bringing into the table new business concepts and ideas. There is no arguing that Asia is the most important places when it comes to today’s business world. However, for those lacking the experience in those markets, a business internship will give you a deeper understanding about the customs and processes as well as a solid network to start off your career.
You will be involved with the daily operations of your host company and will find yourself attending important meetings, working on new projects and meeting clients. It is not uncommon to be given important responsibilities right from the beginning of your placement. You’ll be using your technical skills, but equally important, you’ll be utilizing your leadership and interpersonal skills to complete various business projects.
Participating a business internship typically involves working on different areas such as:
- Business Development
- Startup entrepreneurship
- human resources
- import and export
- international business
- logistics and supply chain
- project management
- social media

Ben Henderson (UK, 2010), University of St Andrews, Business internship in ShanghaiChia Tai Group
My company was a great place to do an internship as you only report to the MD who is a fantastic guy and will make sure you get the most out of your time in Shanghai- He will have a proper project for you to do and your work has a great chance of being implemented. I got to go out and meet clients and build relationships with them on my own.
