Under the circumstances of COVID-19, there was no choice but to have online global internships; however, it has gotten clear that the online global internship has more advantages than the face-to-face global internship in some perspectives. This paper attempts to clarify the characteristics of each face-to-face and online method through comparative analysis using the participant observation method on cases of two-week online and face-to-face internships in the manufacturing industry. Also, this paper proposes an inbound and outbound global internship that incorporates the merits of both face-to-face and online methods, which would be useful after COVID-19.
