    Effective November 1 st 2016, CDC and CIP have merged to form the brand new Center for Career Development and International Programs (CDIP), aiming towards academic and professional development of the Asian University for Women (AUW) students.

    GOAL – To support AUW’s mission in preparing forward-thinking students, CDIP helps students
    discover a career path that will lead them to the independent future they envision.
    To streamline CDIP, activities and services such as internship opportunities, job listings, higher studies and international study exchange programs now work effectively under one roof!

    Ensuring the proper guidance and support throughout their junior and senior years, whether it is grad school or their first job experience, CDIP prepares students to tackle pressing challenges around the world through one-on-one consultations, workshops & training sessions. In addition to this, CDIP collaborates with institutions abroad and facilitates study-exchange programs, which allows them to expand their cultural knowledge and experience a foreign study environment.

    AUW students come from diverse cultural backgrounds studying a unique liberal arts curriculum, allowing employers to reach out to students with varied career interests. Not only are the students eager to grab the next work experience opportunity but are bursting with new ideas to contribute towards the work place and the community itself.
