- Shanghai is currently listed as the largest proper city in the world. With a population of over 23 million people (as of 2010), the city is the commercial and financial hub of China. With a top-of-the-line hi-tech public transportation system and every manner of entertainment at your fingertips, Shanghai is a wonderful place to jump in and really see the massive changes that have hit this country so quickly. Skyscrapers abut temples, while quaint back streets wind hidden beside massive thoroughfares. With the rapid urban to rural migration and the growth of a middle class in China, cars and buses have quickly replaced bicycles and oxen creating a unique mash-up that feels somehow unique to Asia. An internship in Shanghai will challenge your mind, allow you to finally take advantage of your education, and develop cross-cultural communication skills that are vital to work in the new economy. With all of this opportunity lined up waiting for you, why wait to get a jump start on your care
