Highlights of Organisation:

Asia Internship Program was established in December 2013 and has shown tremendous growth in such as short time span. We originally began as an internship matching provider between students and companies. This has since evolved into creating meaningful internship experiences that is unique to our applicants skill set, expectations, and requirements. Since our inception, we have placed over 600 candidates in hundreds of companies across Asia, and that number is steadily growing.

The AIP team is dedicated in providing high quality service, and that begins with our adherence to the T.E.A. values. Considering ourselves as a Transparent company, we conduct ourselves with openness and candour in every aspect of our process. At AIP we encourage feedback from all directions to achieve open communication and foster collaboration. Efficiency is what AIP strives for. We always ensure that messages are responded to within 24-48 hours, and seek to inform students and partners in an open and timely manner. We strongly believe in accepting Accountability by being responsible for our own actions. We make sure that our interns and partner companies are assigned an AIP point of contact to foster working relationships.

Promoting personal development in the upcoming generations is our mission. We aim to support students in their self-improvement and growth. We seek to help students prepare for wherever their future takes them and to achieve their developmental goals.

We seek to be a bridge between Asia and the world to promote cultural exchange. The value of a multicultural experience is invaluable to flourish in the globalised world we live in today. Exposing yourself to total immersion in a foreign country develops cultural understanding and sensitivity that can not be accomplished in a classroom.
