Students learn value of internship abroad through Shanghai program

Standing in the middle of Shanghai’s energetic and buzzing financial district, the connection to business is a natural one to make. To succeed in the increasingly interconnected global business world requires an understanding of different cultures and languages as well as experiences that mirror the real world.

Gettysburg College is preparing students to navigate the global marketplace by providing valuable connections to internships, opportunities to study globally, and ultimately—through support of Gettysburg Great: The Campaign for Our College—the transformation of Plank Gym into a state-of-the-art global center.

One of the College’s Affiliated Global Study programs, CET Shanghai, allows students to combine coursework in Chinese language and electives focusing on East Asia. This is one of the many programs available to students at Gettysburg College, which is currently second in the nation for its mid-length study abroad experiences, according to the 2016 Open Doors Report on International Education Exchange released by The Institute of International Education (IIE).
