Pre-lecture Period (Online Individual Lecture Series): 4 November 2023 - 26 January 2024
Intensive Lecture Period (Group Work Series in Toronto): 19-24 February 2024
In this program students from Kwansei Gakuin University (KGU) and the four Canadian partner universities are placed into groups. Representatives from corporations pose specific business problems, and then student groups analyze and propose solutions for these problems.
This is a great opportunity to build intercultural awareness, gain insight into major corporations and the issues they are tackling. There is also the potential to make international and business connections, particularly for students with non-Business backgrounds.
