Nurturing the global leaders of the next generation who have a deep understanding and appreciation of relations among Japan, China, Korea, Singapore, and other ASEAN countries, and who can utilize advanced communication skills to resolve complex global issuesAn ever-multiplying number of contemporary social issues are shared by all countries and cannot be resolved by any single country acting alone. These include security and environment-related issues, international economic issues, the various challenges arising from the global COVID-19 pandemic, and super-aging societies. If we are to successfully tackle this host of issues, it is of critical importance to build trust among countries and their citizens. Increasingly, these issues require human resources who can employ highly advanced communication skills to identify solutions, while respecting differences in history, culture, language and customs.
This program trains participants to become experts on public policy, international relations, and Asia, a region that is attracting keen attention from the international community, instills in students an understanding and appreciation of the cultural perspectives of Japan, China, and Korea, and also incorporates perspectives from Singapore, a hub at the heart of Southeast Asia. Another key aim of the program is to foster exchanges and interaction among students at the top universities in four Asian countries.
We envision a future where CAMPUS Asia Plus students will use the experience of learning together with friends in other countries, gained during the life-changing experience of studying overseas, to create networks of people who can work together to contribute to the public good in the international community.
