    "In a world that is becoming increasingly inter-dependent, it would be a crime to pass up an opportunity to experience diversity at its finest. I feel that this internship abroad has given me the competitive edge to thrive in a depressing economic society. I learned how working collectively is just as fundamentally important as working individually. I developed extensive market research techniques and methods that are dynamically feasible in any industry. I strengthened my sense of leadership by crafting the initial stages for a new organization within my company. Not to mention, I’ve developed long lasting friendships from across the world.

    Easily, the most enjoyable part of my experience was comparing life stories with colleagues while discovering many types of delicious Chinese food and exploring Beijing.

    No other internship experience that I’ve participated has left me with a great sense of inter-cultural awareness and that has prepared me for a graduate program and career in communications. My internship experience in China proves to be invaluable since the skills that I’ve acquired are intangible to my competitors and exclusive to my knowledge.

    The sagacious thing about CRCC internships abroad is that you’re surrounded by diverse students from all over the world in a beautiful city that welcomes visitors of all kinds. After completing my internship, I feel a greater connection to the world at large and equipped to enter a world of diverse magnitude."

    "Participating in the CRCC Asia China Finance Internship Abroad program was a highly fascinating, stimulating and rewarding experience! I really enjoyed every single bit of my first ever experience in Beijing! From exciting and memorable site-seeing adventures, to mouth-watering Chinese cuisines and jaw-dropping acrobatic shows. The programme was packed with lots of fun!

    Above all, I learnt so much about China’s financial and economic development, engaged in Chinese business skills workshop and networked with market-leading professionals from various financial sector. A particular highlight for me was going on a site visit to Taikang Life (one of China’s major insurance companies) and observing the daily operations of the company’s risk management team. What was truly remarkable about the China Finance Course was the fact that other participants came from diverse academic background with varying level of financial knowledge and different areas of interest within the financial sector; this created a wonderful platform for us to share valuable and interesting views about finance in general. In deed, this internship abroad has greatly strengthened my passion for international finance and corporate work!"

    "My internship abroad with CRCC Asia was not only a valuable professional experience, but also an enlightening opportunity to see life in a different corner of the world. I was fortunate enough to work for a small environmental company in Shanghai, which finally enabled me to feel like I was making a difference in a field that I cared about. I conducted research, wrote reports, assisted with translations, prepared company contracts, and collaborated on a number of other company projects, all of which undoubtedly helped me prepare for a career in the 21st century. I would highly recommend this experience!"

    "I gained so much knowledge and life experience being part of the Shanghai Internship program through CRCC Asia. I always dreamed of coming to China and I started studying Chinese in high school. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to combine my travel in China with a professional internship program that gave me depth and knowledge about Chinese business.I worked for a blockchain company founded in China. Specifically, I worked on a start-up AI/blockchain project providing verification and authorization technologies for the second-hand luxury goods market. I worked on a variety of projects including writing use cases, researching and writing media publications, providing analysis for the financial token sale, meeting with investors and team members, and working closely with marketing/social media channels.I worked directly under CMO and Co-Founder, who taught me so much about Chinese business and skills for success. I had a fantastic experience at my host company and developed what I know will be lasting relationships with my co-workers. I developed an advanced skill set I can apply to future jobs including problem solving, business and data analysis, communication, and writing skills.In addition to my work experience in Shanghai, I took advantage of the opportunity to travel and explore China. I visited several highlights around Shanghai and took several weekend trips outside of the city. I took the high-speed train to Beijing, flew to Xi’an, and took the train to Suzhou, Zhouzhuang, Hangzhou, Nanjing, and Zhuji. Each trip was amazing and expanded my cultural and world knowledge. I did my own research and preparation (including finding hotels, trains, flights, tours, restaurants etc.) and mainly traveled by myself to all these sites.Navigating a city or new culture by myself was a little scary at first but became a new norm and exciting experience. I gained a significant amount of self-confidence and awareness from my travels. I stepped outside of my comfort zone to interact with those I would not have before, navigated foreign places, and had things not always go my way.All my trips were incredibly rewarding experiences and I would not have done anything differently! Some of my favorite memories were a City Wall bike ride and viewing the Terracotta Warriors in Xi’an, going to Shanghai Disneyland (2 times!), a canal boat ride in Zhouzhuang, walking along the Great Wall in Beijing, and seeing the Songcheng Romantic Show in Hangzhou. The friendly and knowledgeable staff at CRCC was always available to provide advice on travel plans or any and every question I sent their way!I highly recommend this type of program for anyone interested in experiencing China while gaining cultural immersion in the workplace. Of course, it was a little nerve wracking to arrive in a foreign place and experience a new living situation, new food, new people, and a foreign culture and language. My advice is to take advantage of seeing as many new things as you can and meet many new people. Just say “yes” to new experiences and don’t look back!"

    "The months approaching my two month summer internship in Shanghai were filled with questions, Is this the right decision? Will I be able to handle it? And worst of all, will I regret it? Even with only one week left, I still find myself stopping and reflecting on the fact that I am currently in China, I am interning with a Russian clothing company, and that I am enjoying the experience more than I ever thought I could. During my time here I have seen, tried and learned more things than I even know at this moment, and I honestly believe it will be years until I can fully process, appreciate, and understand the impact this short two months will have on my life. I also feel it is important to add that nothing is all sunshine and rainbows, China can be an unsettling place. Despite that, those experiences have taught me the most and helped me grow as a person, both in the professional work environment and in my personal relationships. I can’t begin to thank Miami University enough for providing me the opportunity and helping me out along the way, and CRCC Asia for setting up my internship and getting me settled in."

    "The international internship organized by CRCC Asia was a transformative experience. My placement was an incredible opportunity to develop new skills relevant to my field of study, Global and International Politics. I was delighted to complete my NGO/Charity internship at an embassy in Beijing, which enabled me to shape and advance my professional career.My role at the embassy gave me a first-hand experience of international diplomacy. Most importantly, CRCC Asia organized cultural events, business seminars, and weekly Mandarin lessons to facilitate a balance between my work and social life in China. I would like to thank CRCC Asia for their unwavering support throughout my internship. I highly recommend CRCC Asia for students who are interested in international internships and placements."

    "My internship 100% affected everything – I am doing my dissertation on the luxury market in China. I gained a huge insight working at Christie’s with my primary research being aided by my colleagues from there. If I hadn’t done this internship, I would know which direction to be heading in. I worked at Christie’s Auction House and was directly involved in all aspects of the one of their biannual auctions. Work tasks included implementation of the auction, PR, advertising and being knowledgeable about the works of art, their expected value and the price they actually sold for.”

    "Interning abroad through CRCC Asia has taught me the importance of networking and being able to sell myself as an asset. Therefore, one of the most important aspects of the experience was my ability to build a professional network of contacts all over Shenzhen as well as other parts of China. Efficiently leveraging this network will help me during my post-graduation career search. Though I may decide not to seek a career in China, many of my new network contacts have other connections all over the world. So, doors may be opened to things and places I never dreamed possible."

It will be a while before you find the place that’s right for you and it is a great time to learn about where you think you fit in. I would definitely recommend this Program to anyone who is looking for travel and also practical experience in a foreign workplace. In an environment such as Shanghai you are going to get to experience some amazing tourist attractions, while also getting a chance to fit into a new culture and society. It is a great thing for resumes too and people will want to see all of the knowledge you have gotten from traveling abroad."

    "Interning in Tokyo challenged me 24/7 day to night. From trying to nail down my transit routine to adjusting to my workplace, I was always in a hurried state of learning, growing, and adapting. I truly owe my success to my coworkers for being so helpful and patient with me throughout my internship. They treated me as their own, even taking me out to lunch and exploring the city. Looking back at my time in Tokyo, I realize how much I’ve grown as both a professional and global citizen. I’ve gained international working skills and cultural perspectives from simply maneuvering through Tokyo’s dynamic streets. It’s quite impossible to write down everything I’ve learned, but I do know that because of this internship opportunity, I’ve grown to become a more globally aware individual than I was two months ago"

    "My time in China was truly an eye opening experience. I was blown away by the country’s breathtaking views, bustling economy, and intimate relationship with technology. China had so much to offer. From hours spent learning about the country’s rich history, cosmetics and health food market trends, and regulatory affairs to days spent trekking and exploring the cities like Hangzhou and Qibao, China has equipped me with a global understanding of international business and regulatory affairs and given countless memories that I will cherish forever. I am a more culturally aware, self-reliant, and communicative person because of the time I spent in Shanghai, China. The experience forced me out of my comfort zone and try things (foods, activities, social settings etc.) that I never considered prior.
