Language & Internship Option
By popular demand, we are offering a new pathway for MAIS International Business students – instead of teaching, you have the opportunity to work for a multinational or local company. Praxis Veritas , our internship partner in China, has placed hundreds of students in business internships in Shanghai in fields including law, technology, marketing, PR, finance, F&B, health and medicine and many others. Based on your skills and interests, you will work directly with Praxis Veritas* who will match you up with a one-semester or two-semester internship with a company in Shanghai.
In addition, you will be concurrently enrolled in Mandarin courses in both Fall and Spring semesters at our partner institution,
East China Normal University (ECNU)**. You will receive a special student visa with internship through ECNU. In the mornings you will be at university learning Chinese; in the afternoons you will be at your company learning international business. Both are part of your experiential learning that are the hallmark of Concordia’s MAIS program.
