“Deciding to intern overseas was a great choice which allowed myself to gain valuable cultural insights and experience which I would have been able to find domestically. Shanghai is an amazing metropolis to explore and discover the infinite delights that it has to offer. Howa and Rodrick were excellent hosts during my stay in Shanghai and were helpful in assisting whenever necessary. They ensured I was comfortable and organised everything for the duration of the internship. Overall a great business experience that I would highly recommend to anyone looking to undertake an internship and a new and challenging environment,
