Whether you are a recent graduate, taking a career break, or looking to gain practical experience in your field of study, an international internship in Shanghai can be an important stepping stone in your career path. ELI works with a wide variety of organizations in Shanghai to create one of a kind, tailored internships in fields ranging from Law to Engineering and Health Sciences. Interns gain valuable work experience while living in one of the most dynamic and quickly growing metropolises on the face of the planet. Working with Chinese companies, interns develop important cross-cultural competencies and truly join the international marketplace. If you do not see your area of interest listed below, please inquire. Shanghai offers almost limitless opportunities!

Major Responsibilities

Shanghai's skyline is a fantasy of modern skyscrapers towering over historic architecture including Neo Classical masterpieces on the Bund and traditional  Chinese Architecture such as Yyuan Garden, built in the 16th century. Shanghai's commercial and residential buildings showcase cutting edge interior design concepts and attract attention from around the world. Interns in the fields of architecture and interior design work directly with professionals as project assistants and may be given more responsibilities with specific projects.
