Great BU Turnout for Summer Career Fairs in China

in Global Matters
September 23rd, 2019

Once again BU participated in the (American Universities’ China Association) AUCA CAREER FAIRs this summer in Shanghai, Shenzhen, and Beijing. Boston University was one of the founding sponsors of the career fairs three years ago, and this year the fairs brought students and recent alumni from 20 American universities together to meet representatives from 145 companies from a wide variety of industries offering over 4,000 internship and full-time employment opportunities. Leading multinational companies like Amazon, Bloomberg, Dell, KPMG and Unilever were there along with top Chinese firms like Alibaba, BOE, ByteDance and CreditEase, to name just a few of the participating companies.

Boston University had the second highest attendance among the 20 participating schools after USC with 211 graduate, undergraduate and recent grads attending.

If you are aware of local career fairs in other countries that would be of interest to our diverse student and recent alumni population, please let Global Programs know at We would be happy to help promote the events.
