About Institution / Department

With a focus on sustainability, the Doshisha Global MBA guides students to explore and enquire beyond the established boundaries set by established theories and practices of global business and management to look beyond ‘business as usual’. As they grow into global-minded leaders, students will not only cover the breadth of standard MBA core subjects, but also develop deeper insights from the program’s three focus areas, and hone their analytical prowess through our program’s research thesis component.

Our aim is to prepare future business leaders who are willing and able to respond effectively to the emerging needs of the increasingly diverse groups of people participating in the global economy. The Doshisha Global MBA program offers a unique experiential MBA to students willing to work in partnership with professors and local and multinational business leaders when exploring - and challenging - traditions and trends in global business and management.
We also boast a capable and hard-working office staff who are dedicated to helping students smoothly deal with administrative matters.

About Representative

My research examines how culture influences people in various psychological aspects such as emotions, thought and behaviour. I am interested in expanding the scope of psychology to various cultures and subcultures. For this I carry out research using diverse methods, varying from experiments in the lab, questionnaire surveys to analysis of cultural products (e.g., books, music, newspaper), as well as big data and computational methods (e.g., NLP, machine learning).

About Institution / Department

The institute for the future of human society at Kyoto University houses experts from various fields within social sciences. Through a combination of traditional (such as lab experiments and field work) and cutting-edge research methods (such as data science, social computing, and neuroimaging) the researchers in the institute work to unveil the mechanisms of the human mind and its interaction with society. The institute has a long list of international collaboration projects, and hosts researchers from institutions all around the world.

About Institution / Department

Shinshu University Center for Global Education and Collaboration (formerly the Global Education Center) was established in April 2019 with the aim of strengthening academic exchange and initiating international public relations activities.
The primary role of the GEC is to promote global education. It encourages Japanese students to study overseas and provides support for international students studying at the University, including the provision of Japanese language classes. Besides playing a general coordinating role in the planning and promotion of globalization throughout the University, the Center also makes an important contribution to globalization and international cooperation at a regional level.

Our Mission
Our mission is to strategically promote further internationalization in a way that will boost the educational and research capabilities of Shinshu University.

We believe that building robust international networks and creating campuses where students and researchers from Japan and abroad can gather to learn and be creative together will improve the global literacy of everyone involved while promoting international joint education and collaborative research.

About Institution / Department

Engineering School of Nishinihon Institute of Technology consists as Department of Integrated Systems Engineering of 7 special fields from which students can select for their purposes.

There is only one Integrated System Engineering Department at our Engineering School. A student can select one of 7 special fields provided at our school according to his purposes. The reason for this unique organizaion of the school is that our school brings up not only specialists who has mastered knowledge or technology of special fields, but also generalists who can understand engineering as a whole beyond their own special fields. This is because present-day manufacturing requires not only one spececial field but also wide-range and high-level knowledge and technology. Threfore, the original curriculum suitable for social needs is organized such as the organization of common subjects to engineering school, introductory education for the basic study of engineering, accreditation of other special subjects, etc.
