Students can learn not only cultural sensitivity and networking ability, but also theories and concepts via the exchange program. SUSTC has established several partnerships all over the world. Our first exchange students have been to University of British Columbia to experience summer courses. This new semester, 4 students of our department have exchanged to Temple University to take courses for one semester. With prior approval, courses taken during exchange studies are transferable towards the requirement for graduation. Scholarships are also available to selected students to cover their daily expense.
Internship provides students with professional and real-life business experience during their university years. We encourage students to get first-hand knowledge of how corporations operate on a day-to-day basis by recognition of the hard-work as credits towards graduation and by providing internship subsidies to cover their daily expense. On top of this, we have established some connections with the business community for internship opportunities like Bank of China.
