CAREER OPPORTUNITIES IN CHINA

Serving as a hub for the Columbia community abroad and at home, the Beijing Center is committed to equipping the university students with global experience and local opportunities, helping them fulfill individual potential, and assisting with their career development. Our career development program connects with schools, departments, as well as local partners, to help students and alumni explore a diverse range of career options and build a meaningful network in China. We host virtual career fairs, industry insights series, and a bi-weekly job column throughout the year to assist students in obtaining a full-time job or internship via our partner networks and gain insights on the current job market and the skills needed to succeed.

STUDENT CAREER DEVELOPMENT

The Beijing Center puts the career development of our students and recent graduates as one of our priorities. We are dedicated to directly connecting students and recent graduates from the Columbia University community with local employers.

Over the past academic year, we have brought 65 local employers—in finance, technology, education, healthcare, and other industries—to connect with students from Columbia Engineering (SEAS), School of Professional Studies (SPS), Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS), Columbia Business School (CBS), and the Irving Medical Center (CUIMC).
