Internship in Hong Kong
After a successful pilot program in the summer of 2010, BEO expanded its international internships to Hong Kong. Our students work in a private equity firm, gaining practical experience in finance and exposure to work and deals in China and other Asian markets.
Here is what our interns had to say:
"While I was working for the private equities division, I became involved in multiple projects. My responsibilities were not limited to doing background research on these projects; I was able to absorb a lot of financial/entrepreneurial knowledge through performing financial analysis/modeling, or even site visiting and interviewing with the CEO of a company." —Lawrence Chung, Hong Kong intern, 2011
"[The best part of the internship was] working on active deals, which allowed me to see how the process really works. I felt like my work often was really contributing to the projects."—Holly Hunt, Hong Kong intern, 2011
"I would definitely recommend this internship to future students. [The company] provided an excellent internship experience, mostly because it is a small firm and they really cared that I got a lot out of the experience. The small size of the firm meant that I worked very closely with my mentors, who, despite only being a couple years older than me, are clearly very important to the firm. There isn’t really any middle-management, so it is basically the senior partners, then my mentors and the interns. This meant that I could really see how my projects fit into the business and its goals instead of feeling like they were just busy work. Also, I was often given tasks that were clearly for my benefit and my benefit alone." —Erik Duhaime, Hong Kong intern, 2010
