Past Review Amazing!
Arriving in Shanghai will all of the skyscrapers and overwhelming amount of people, I felt pretty insignificant.

August 17, 2016 Pretty Interesting
I learned about cultures outside of the US and how to live with a local roommate. The cultural exchange was an interesting experience. I think this kind of experience would be more worthwhile to Americans who are completely foreign to eastern Asian culture, as opposed to someone like me who is an ABC and can "blend in" more easi... - Brandeis University View Entire Review

About

Want to use international experience to build an amazing résumé? CET Shanghai students get to understand the rewards and challenges of working abroad. There are hundreds of placements available, and we help you find an organization that's the perfect match for your interests and skills. You'll undertake coursework that provides an academic context for your internship and take Chinese language classes as well. Choose electives that meet a major requirement, like International Marketing, or one that's distinctly Chinese, like Contemporary Chinese Cinema. And if you're not interested in interning abroad, there's an option for that too. To round out your experience, life with a Chinese roommate provides the opportunity to engage with Chinese culture, and a big highlight of the program is a weekend trip to the Yangtze Delta. This program is open to students of all majors and all language levels.Highlights
