Program period: TBD for 2023 (typically early June to mid July)
As with the Global Career Seminar in Canada, in this program students from Kwansei Gakuin University (KGU) and the four Canadian partner universities are placed into groups which are then given specific business problems, offered by representatives from corporations, which they will be expected to analyze and propose solutions for.
This is a great opportunity to build intercultural awareness, gain insight into major corporations and the issues they are tackling, and make international and business connections, particularly for students in non-Business backgrounds, while gaining academic credit.
Please note the information below is for the 2021 program and may change for 2023. The program is not being offered in 2022.
The Global Career Seminar in Japan is a 3-credit course, consisting of approximately fifteen online pre-seminar sessions and two synchronous sessions on June 4th and 18th (7:00 - 8:30 PM EST). Applicants must watch all the on-demand pre-seminar sessions, attend the two synchronous sessions, and submit the assignments stated in the syllabus. Students will work together to analyze and solve real business issues posed by industry representatives.
