In order to do global business successfully, you will need not only English skills but also communication skills, mutual understanding of other cultures, and liberal arts. We would like to develop such human resources in this 2 weeks intensive program.

By understanding the concept of our GLS Program based on ICU’s liberal arts education, we are expecting more and more excellent business persons to join the program.
