Global Career Seminar - Japan

Applications for Summer 2023 are closed. Summer 2024 applications will open in the Spring. 

Program period: From 2 June to 14 July online; 3 August to 11 August 2023 in person. 

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.

Pre-Seminar Sessions (Online): 2 June -  14 July, 2023
