Hong Kong is home to Asia's third largest stock exchange, and foreign trade and investment make up a significant portion of its GDP. The urban density, high concentration of restaurants, cultural sites and dedicated green spaces make it a great location to enjoy all the activity of a bustling international city while maintaining access to the outdoors.

Internship: Hong Kong offers full-time summer internship placements to all majors. Internships are customized to students' skill sets, prior work experience, current academic and future career goals. This location is especially suited for finance, economics, computer science, advertising, marketing, public relations and design majors.
