Global Career Seminar - Canada

Information about the 2023 session will be updated in September 2022.

Program Period

Pre-lecture Period (Online Individual Lecture Series): November 2021 - January 2022
Intensive Lecture Period (Online Group Work Series): 20-25 February 2022

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.
