Global Professional Experience
The Global Professional Experience program allows students to learn firsthand, through unpaid internship positions, how businesses and organizations operate in different parts of the world. This four-and-a-half week workplace engagement/internship program places students with different businesses in Beijing, Hong Kong, and India. Notre Dame International provides logistic support on the ground through its global gateway and centers. Orientations will be provided upon arrival on-site.
This program includes three main components:
- A one credit course that both introduces the major economic and social issues that are shaping contemporary China and India and also provides a classroom setting for discussing your professional experiences. The course will start in the spring term before departure and via internet once students arrive on-site.
- A two-day on-site orientation provided by the Notre Dame Global Gateway in Beijing, the Hong Kong Global Center in Hong Kong and the Mumbai Global Center in India.
- A one-month workplace placement within a business or organization in China or India that will provide you with professional experiences related to your academic and professional interests. Host businesses and organizations include media, law, technology, healthcare, and finance, among other sectors.
