Marius Palz studied at Doshisha Unveristy, Kyoto, Japan as an exchange student from his home institution, Eberhard Karls University, Tuebingen, Germany from September 2010 to March 2011.

As a student of cultural anthropology in Germany, Marius enrolled in courses on anthropology and identity at Doshisha taught by OICD director, Dr. Bruce White.

Enjoying his time in Kyoto and at Doshisha, Marius was keen to spend the Summer in the city and enquired about the possibility of an internship that would allow him to stay while building up his knowledge and experience in a field similar to his university major.

Bruce White, OICD Director, and Gregory Poole, Dean of the Institute of the Liberal Arts, Doshisha University, celebrate Marius Palz with Internship completion certificate

Marius has spent six weeks as an OICD intern working out of offices at Doshisha University and thus, he is the first person to hold an official internship at the OICD.

Marius has spent his weekdays engaged in liaison and research work, on conference calls to OICD personnel and partners, and planning product and service promotional campaigns. He has significantly contributed for organizational development and OICD projects.

Marius has received a Certificate from Dr. Bruce White and Dr. Gregory Poole upon the completion of his internship program. ¬†Congratulations to Marius for being the OICD’s first official intern and keep up the good work!
