Nov 6, 2015

On October 30, eight students participating in the CAMPUS Asia Program* paid a courtesy visit to Professor INOUE Noriyuki, Executive Vice President in charge of International Exchange. Professor OGAWA Keiichi, Project Associate Professor TANAKA Satoru, and Project Assistant Professor KOISHI Yoshiko from the Kobe University Graduate School of International Cooperation Studies also participated in the meeting.

The four students visiting Japan from Korea University (Republic of Korea) and four students from Fudan University (China) arrived in Japan in September this year, and are currently studying Risk Management at the Kobe University Graduate School of International Cooperation Studies. They reported that as well as their classwork and research, they were also enjoying Japanese culture and interacting with other students.

Professor INOUE gave the students some words of encouragement, saying, “Each of you may face challenges in a new environment, but I hope that you will take full advantage of this opportunity for personal and professional development.”

*Through the CAMPUS Asia program Kobe University Graduate School of International Cooperation Studies has formed a consortium with China’s Fudan University School of International Relations and Public Affairs and South Korea’s Korea University Graduate School of International Studies. This consortium aims to offer cooperative education programs to train “risk management experts” working in an international capacity. The program is supported by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports and Science and Technology’s (MEXT) “Re-Inventing Japan Project.
