Program Overview

For the past four years, College of Advancing and Professional Studies (CAPS) has administered the award-winning Fulbright-Hays program, which provides full immersion experiences including summer internship and academic studies in Xi’an, China. This summer, for the first time, we are extending the summer internship program to all UMass Boston students who are interested. All internship positions will be within the Xi’an High Tech Zone in Xi’an, Shaanxi Province in China. The zone has been called the “Silicon Valley” of China, which is home to over 30,000 high tech companies. We will work with our students to create internship positions based on their interests.

In previous years, students have worked on significant projects in positions such as HR, Finance, Sales and Marketing, Hi Tech, etc. Companies they worked for included Price Waterhouse Coopers, Trimble, Rockwell Automation, Newegg, etc. The following are some of the projects our students worked on:

Students will work in Chinese companies from Monday to Friday for six weeks except one afternoon when they will gather to attend seminars on topics such as the cultural differences between China and America or work on their report about business cultural differences.

This internship will help you understand the challenges and opportunities in a global setting. Your experiential learning gained through this program will help your resume stand out among your peers because companies today are seeking college graduates who are comfortable with cross cultural communication and possess the understanding of how business is conducted in a market of over 1.3 billion people.

Courses and Credit

Participants can earn three UMass Boston credits. You may contact your department regarding how the credits may be applied to your major.
