Michele Vietri

Student: Michele Vietri
Citizenship: Italian
Programme and Year: BSc, 2nd year, Management
Campus: Florence
Internship Company: Dezan Shira and Associates
Location: Beijing, China


My name is Michele Vietri and I am a second year Management student of the Bachelor in Business Administration at the ESE campus in Florence. This year I was highly motivated to seek an internship abroad, preferably in Asia. I wanted to get to know and work with a totally different culture from mine. After two months of research together with the ESE Internship department, we found an interesting opportunity at a company in Beijing. The hiring process was a bit long and challenging due to some recruitment policies of the company, but eventually we managed and here I am now, at the other side of the world!
I am currently working at the marketing department of Dezan Shira and Associates as a Marketing Assistant. The environment here is highly professional but at the same time friendly. They consider me as a person, not as a number, and I really feel part of the team. We were able to plan my internship according to my requirements, my goals and what I want to get out of this experience professionally speaking.
My current role in this company is actually divided into four projects. First, I am managing a publication partnership project, that consists of finding partners for our editorial department. Secondly, I am doing market research about the differences between the various development zones of China. I am also following a variety of events and conferences on behalf of the company and finally I am responsible for the translation of articles for the Italian desk.
I am very happy with this instructive and varied internship and it is a very good way of learning Asian business life in practice. Beijing is a busy world capital, but a fascinating city at the same time that lets me experience different aspects of Chinese (business) life: chaos and poverty, but also wealth, entertainment and wonderful works of art and history.
