Global Leaders for Innovation and Knowledge features coursework and field work in four countries. This multi-campus environment enables participants to experience examples of the latest innovation, and to examine values as they apply to different countries and cultures.
Learn to connect regionally indigenous knowledge through interaction with other participants from Asian countries as well as instructors and experts on the different campuses. During the program, participants will visit four countries; Japan, U.S.(Hawaii), Singapore and Thailand.
Learn management theory including knowledge creation. The participants learn via actual examples of how theories are applied. At the beginning of the module, the participants deliver a presentation on a specific issue they wish to explore and pursue the issue throughout the program. This project-based approach encourages them to draw relevant connections between program learning and the issue.
Focus on liberal arts. A core course will help the participants shift their perspective as a citizen of their country of origin to that of a global citizen. A group project will be conducted in which the team will develop an innovation model to address an issue a local company, NPO, or a government organization faces.
