Welcome to the Summer 2015 Keio Global e-newsletter!
Keio Global e-newsletter! This edition features: the “Consideration of International Exchange in the Age of Educational Globalization—Global Mobility of Students—” Symposium, “Studying in the U.S. — Dialogue with Ambassador Kennedy,” and a rundown of PEARL, which is the newest English-taught program at Keio.
Experts in the area of international exchange converged on Keio for a series of panel discussions and presentations with the aim of trying to gain a better understanding of some of the more pressing issues related to globalization of higher education in Japan.
The U.S. Ambassador to Japan, Caroline Kennedy, paid a visit to Keio University’s Mita Campus on July 6, 2015, to convey to Keio University students the benefits of studying abroad and to encourage more Japanese students to choose the United States as their study abroad destination.
In September 2016, the Faculty of Economics at Keio University will start the all-English four-year “Programme in Economics for Alliances, Research and Leadership (PEARL).” Click through to find out more about yet another way to gain a global education at Keio.
