Summer Internship Snapshot

Emily and a fellow classmate
HNC MAIS students have the summer between the first and second year of the program to do thesis research, find an internship, or travel. We checked in with Emily Shea at the end of her first year at the HNC to see how she would be spending her summer:

What are you doing this summer?
Emily: I have an internship with a US wine company that’s importing wine to China, so I’m studying to get a certification, the Certified Specialist of Wine. Just a few months ago I went with them and was their interpreter for their meetings with a couple Chinese companies.

How will this connect with your thesis topic?
Emily: I’m hoping to do my thesis on the international wine market for the international economics concentration, and focus on China because China is a super interesting undeveloped market but with all these complications.
