GRIPS’ current policy on education, research and management is strongly linked to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015. Our curriculum highlights the 17 goals of the SDGs: we work to raise the awareness and knowledge of the SDGs amongst our students—many of whom will go on to become future leaders of their countries. We are also keen on encouraging research that will contribute towards the achievement of the SDGs.
