CET Beijing: Internship

Academic Director David Moser teaching at a museum in Beijing, China

Your Beijing Network

Getting to know Beijing is the best thing you can do for a career path that’s going to include China. CET uses its longstanding guanxi (connections) to introduce you to this city of movers and shakers. Meet journalists. Talk to researchers. Interact with policy experts. Liaise with alumni. Start creating your own network now. It will be there waiting for you after you graduate.


Pursue an internship in a field you’re passionate about. Interested in business? You can work at an app startup, or at an organization that promotes women in entrepreneurship. Is your mission public health? Intern at a pediatric clinic. Want to go into media? We can set you up with Blue Ocean Network Satellite TV.

Local Roommates

Living with a local roommate is about more than just sharing a room. Your roommate can show you how to set up your Chinese social media accounts, the best places to work out, the latest slang, and where to get steamed dumplings for lunch. What will you do with your roommate?
