The Kyoto program combines a Winter or Spring quarter of academic study in Kyoto with a subsequent Summer internship, normally located elsewhere in Japan. Internships in Japan are a great way for students to get hands on working life experience in a different culture in fields such as engineering, science, finance, management and political economy.
