Notre Dame International offers students the opportunity to learn firsthand how businesses and organizations operate all over the world. Through unpaid internships, students can participate in this nearly five-week workplace engagement program. The Global Professional Experience Program currently places students with businesses and organizations in Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, and Singapore.

“The GPE program provides students with an opportunity to gain professional and international work experience at a company we place them with,” says Hong Zhu, director of global engagement programs at Notre Dame International.

“This program allows students to have an immersive cultural experience through a workplace, provides students with professional experiences related to their academic and professional interests, and helps students with their career discernment and personal growth.”
