Over the summer, five students travelled to Shanghai to intern at different finance companies through the World Leading Schools Association (WLSA).
From June 18 to June 30, Simon Weinberg ’17, Bryant Wu ’17, Kendall Dees ’19, Claire Dennis ’18 and Jacob Lapin ’19 interned at Guotai Junan Securities Co. Ltd and Shanghai Seven-star Financial Service Co. Ltd.
Professors conducted lessons about Chinese business and students were assigned to write daily finance reports for their advisors.
The students stayed with host families during their stay in Shanghai, as they bonded with their host siblings, Lapin said. Upper School Dean Jamie Chan supervised the trip.
“I think our students got a lot of social exposure being in the Chinese businesses, using their language skills and learning about their economy,” Chan said.
