The Chinese Overseas Flagship Program in Beijing consists of a part-time internship placement in a Chinese professional setting during the entire second-semester. The internship component of the Chinese Overseas Flagship Program is designed to enhance each participant’s language ability and professional experience in their field of interest. Participants work closely with the Chinese Flagship Program staff in Beijing and their home institution to find and secure a substantial internship with a company, organization, or institution. Participants are expected to conduct their internships for at least eight hours a week in a Chinese-based setting, using their Mandarin language skills.
