グローバル秩序変容時代のリーダー養成プログラム― GRIPS Global Governance Program (G-cube) ―



The curriculum for this program has been designed to enable students to develop a broad historical perspective, strong analytical ability, and good communication skills through lectures, tutorials, and seminars taught entirely in English. A distinctive feature of the program is its teaching staff, which includes nationally and internationally renowned guest speakers—many of whom are former ministers and top business leaders—as well as first-rate GRIPS faculty.


This program features compulsory small-group tutorials organized into four policy clusters: global issues, developing countries, emerging countries, and developed countries. From these, students will choose four policy issues to research, two from their major cluster and two from the remaining clusters. Through intensive discussions with one another as well as with the Professor, students will acquire broad knowledge and deep understanding of these issues and develop strong analytical skills. Students will also write research papers requiring rigorous academic analysis and not simply passive reproduction of knowledge.
