Through extended travel seminars, field study, and guided research projects or internships, you will meet and interact with local students and scholars, community and business leaders, journalists, politicians, artists, and entrepreneurs. Though daily life in Hong Kong is distinctly fast-paced, there is another dimension you will discover: the deep cultural connections that center on family, friends, celebration, and tradition.
Students have the option to take courses at Syracuse's Hong Kong center or directly enroll in City University of Hong Kong. Available courses cover a wide range of subjects, including economics, political science, history, religion, Chinese language, business, and more.
The internship experience allows for in-depth and practical understanding of how business and government function in Hong Kong. Placements are available in international and non-governmental organizations, businesses, financial advisory firms, the communications industry, and many more. Previous placements have included Amnesty International, CNN, Edelman Public Relations Worldwide, Fleishman Hilliard, Friends Provident International, Mayer Brown JSM, St. James Place, and Hong Kong Policy Research Institute. Students who choose not to participate in an internship can conduct a research project.
Hong Kong global ambassadors had intensive internship experiences, experienced the excitement of Chinese New Year, and met students from all over the world—ask them anything about Hong Kong.
