International internships in Hong Kong

Overview

Completing a internship placement in Hong Kong will allow you to gain experience in one of the world’s leading commercial centers and a powerhouse in Asia. Our international Hong Kong internship program offers interns the opportunity to attain invaluable professional experience in their field in one of the world’s leading cities, all while making important global connections and boosting their resume.

The skyline of Hong Kong showcases opportunities and success, featuring some of the world’s most renowned financial institutions and investment banks. Nestling side-by-side are skyscrapers where the headquarters of many of the most profitable Chinese companies now sit. A city that never sleeps – Hong Kong is a shimmering playground for Wall Street power-players, commercial tycoons and fashion trendsetters.

Hong Kong is a modern metropolis built from the ancient civilization of China 5,000 years ago. A stroll through the city takes you on a journey through time with 500-year-old village walls from the Hakka community alongside Georgian and Edwardian architectures serving as a reminder of Hong Kong’s colonial past. The evening scent of incense sticks, lit by the millions of households practicing Buddhist traditions, mixed with the aroma of delicious cuisine wafting from Chinese restaurants will leave a lasting impression during your time as an intern in China.
