Explore Asia's flourishing financial hub

A fusion of East meets West, Hong Kong is a melting pot of cultures and landscapes, embracing the modern world, yet maintaining traditional Chinese character and historical charm.  Renown as a logistics and distribution hub with a flourishing financial centre, Hong Kong presents a ‘soft landing’ for our Global Interns, where English is widely spoken.

Student testimonial

I have been essentially immersed into the organisation and the Hong Kong business environment. I attended committee meetings across a range of business sectors, helping me to gain a deep understanding of the business culture, issues, interests and environment across different sectors, from small to large organisations. I found the language training and diverse speakers a really unique and powerful addition to the program which I received a lot of benefit from. The remote Griffith Asia Business Internship has been a really amazing experience to get a foot in the door. It is a good eye-opener for me as I have been put in so many different areas and had so many experiences with AustCham, it has been very valuable.

Remote Internship with AustCham Hong Kong, 2020

Industry testimonial

Thank you for enabling Auguste Lameta to undertake her remote internship with Crossroads Foundation – we have enjoyed having her onboard. Auguste’s project was to help Crossroads with deeper analysis of the impact of our shipments – both in making recommendations for calculating the number of direct and indirect beneficiaries in line with development best practice, and analysing the outcomes and impact of individual shipments as well as our distribution work as a whole. The goal was to help us better understand and communicate the value of our shipments, as well as standardising our reporting methodology.

Auguste was able to apply methodology from her own experience in the development sector, including creating customised logical frameworks and drafting a theory of change for our Global Distribution division. At the same time, the project enabled her to reflect on her own work from a different perspective. She had the opportunity to present to Crossroads’ directors and senior staff, who showed an interest in being involved as the project continues.

We are thankful that Auguste is keen to continue her involvement even following her internship, as we will benefit from her insights. Thanks for Griffith University’s support with quality interns!
