Director, GLS 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.
After the program, we hope all the participants will make the most of their “global mind and skill” they learned at GLS and succeed in the business field as well as in the society.

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 3 week intensive program.

Since 2016, shortly divided GLS program which consisted of 3 independent modules could make the participants easy to join in, and aimed to provide the more satisfying timetables and to reach the higher goal without changing the previous GLS basic concept.  This year 2017 as well, GLS will make a continuous effort to improve the program which is based on our new global challenges.
