China Internship Program
Chéngdū (成都) might not be on the top of your list of cities to intern in, but you will be happily surprised. Chengdu is the financial capital of Western China and as an intern in Chengdu you will get hands-on experience in a national or international company while you experience a different working culture and live in a city with cute pandas, cozy tea houses, a great nightlife and amazing food.
Chengdu is ideal for those who dream of interning within IT, electronics, logistics, or maybe finance. A lot of multinational companies have offices in Chengdu, and if you land an internship in Chengdu you will experience an amazing city that not everyone visits.
As an intern in Chengdu you will live in a city that is more relaxed than China's more popular cities Shanghai and Beijing. Chengdu has a unique Sichuan culture, beautiful green areas and a subtropical climate. Get excited about tiny alleys (Kuan and Zhai Alleys), Jinli Street that lurks with nice meals in exciting restaurants and Poly Center for partying in the late hours.
