Message from the Director of the Global Center

Having a Global Perspective for Connecting with the World


Professor Masaaki Shimura, Director, Global Center

In the future, Now you have to maintain an awareness of global connections no matter where you live. Considering any thing, you have to do so not from a local but from a global standpoint. Our students participating the short term overseas program should learn how people around the world think and will provide feedback when they return to Japan. The overseas program is sophisticatedly designed to cultivate such a global perspective. After coming back from the program, you will not only acquire necessary knowledge but cultivate logical thinking skills, gain an understanding of basic mechanisms of your major field, which will lead to develop broad skills to become a leader in each social field of yours. Come to the University of Nagano and develop broad leadership skills to tackle various challenges you come up against in society with your own thinking.
