Terry - Business in Asia (+ Internship)
A Business in Asia program allows students to enhance their global business skills through foreign study and work experience. Students will travel to Shanghai to complete a two-week faculty led seminar and culture program, followed by a six-week full-time internship. Placement services and on-site support will be offered by a third-party internship provider.
Shanghai is an attractive destination for students studying international business for many reasons. One of the largest cities in the world, Shanghai is considered the financial and commercial capital of China. Shanghai has established itself as an attractive market for foreign investment, as more than 500 companies have established regional headquarters in the city. The city also boasts the busiest container port and longest metro system in the world. The growing Asian urban centers are a fascinating study of the effects, both positive and negative, of rapid globalization and development in the 21st century.

UGA education abroad programs strive to provide reasonable accommodations for students with documented disabilities. Areas of disability include, but are not limited to visual, hearing, learning, psychological, medical, and mobility impairments. If you receive disability-related accommodations at UGA or at your home university, or if you anticipate needing accommodations at your overseas site, you will arrange for them with your study abroad program director and the staff in the Disability Resource Center. Examples of accommodations include note taking assistance, extended test time, a quiet testing location, alternative text/media, and accessible housing. Please provide information about your accommodation needs at least 4 weeks prior to departure in order to allow time to arrange for accommodations. Students are asked to disclose disability-related needs prior to the start of the program to help ensure that there are no delays in accommodations and that the student can enjoy the full study abroad experience.
