The eight students participated in the inaugural cohort of Asia Biztech Summer in Taiwan 2018. Cohort #1 wrapped up their internships on Tuesday, July 31st and are preparing to return to Boise. Asia Biztech, which began on June 11, brought the students to Taichung, Taiwan, for three weeks of intensive study of history, political economy, business, culture and Chinese language. This part also included field trips to meet with the leadership of top government, technology and business entities around Taiwan. Following the classroom work, the diverse group of students from COBE, the College of Engineering and School of Public Service went into various internships around the island.
“We are extremely grateful to our many excellent partners, particularly our hosts Providence University and the Taiwan Thinktank. It has been a great honor to watch the students gain deep life experiences over the summer, and we look forward to Cohort #2 next summer,” said Jack Marr, COBE faculty and founder of the program.
The Asia Biztech website, which contains reflections, pictures, video, and partner information will go live soon. Recruiting for Cohort #2 will begin early in fall semester 2018.
