"I gained a huge confidence boost by completing this internship abroad. Now that I am back home, I find myself taking more risks and I am willing to dream bigger than I would have imagined before. Just the knowledge that I successfully traveled halfway around the world and worked and lived for ten weeks with people I had never met before makes other challenges seem simple. I know that I have the ability to reach beyond my skill level and rise to the potential that I want to attain."
- K. Dean, 10 week intern
Internships in Singapore
Singapore is both a country and a city with 4.5 million people and four official languages: Malay, Mandarin, Tamil, and English. Malay is the national language and English is the language of business. The standard of living in Singapore is among the highest in Asia, with state-of-the-art facilities for education, shopping, sports, and recreation. It has a diverse population of Chinese, Malay, Indian, Eurasian, and other ethnic groups. One cannot help but notice how clean and green the country is and how friendly the locals are to visitors. These observations may be attributed to social campaigns like the Courtesy Campaign, Keep Singapore Clean, and Keep Singapore Green.
With no natural resources of its own, Singapore has leveraged its strategic location as a trading hub, adhered to an open market economy, and focused on manufacturing while investing heavily in education. By the 1990s, the country had become one of the world’s most prosperous nations with the highest per capita gross domestic product in Asia outside of Japan. The Port of Singapore is the busiest in the world, surpassing Hong Kong and Shanghai.
