Two graduate programs offered by Doshisha University were selected for “the 2014 International Priority Graduate Programs (PGP) : Advanced Graduate Courses for International Students” by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology (MEXT).
Under this initiative, MEXT adopts some unique and engaging programs intended to outstanding international students and offers them the scholarship preferentially within each program’s placement quota.
At Doshisha University, “Training Program for Developing Future Leaders in a Global Manufacturing World” offered by the Graduate School of Science and Engineering and “Kyoto-based Global Business Leadership Training Program for the Economic Development of ASEAN, Russia, CIS, and Japan” offered by the Global MBA (Global Business and Management Studies) at Doshisha Business School were selected, which enables 13 prospective international students to be placed to our university with MEXT Scholarship every year between the 2015 and 2017 academic year.
The Graduate School of Science and Engineering
“Training Program for Developing Future Leaders in a Global Manufacturing World”
We offer an education program based on well-known Japanese apprentice system.
We will recruit international students from non-English-speaking countries, such as in Europe, Middle East, Asian and African areas. Those students will develop an understanding of different cultures and fields by studying together with Japanese students. They will earn degrees (including double degrees) in each course by having an internship opportunity as well as by taking practical and theoretical subjects—including research and experiments, and the study of Japanese corporate cultured—which aim to develop leaders in the field of manufacturing.

“Kyoto-based Global Business Leadership Training Program for the Economic Development of ASEAN, Russia, CIS, and Japan”
The Global MBA (Global Business and Management Studies) at Doshisha Business School is a two-year full-time program that guides students to become business leaders with a global perspective. Students develop deep insights into issues of sustainability, culture and creativity, and business in Asia, while improving their cross-cultural competencies. Students from a wide variety of backgrounds and over 30 countries add to the diversity that makes the Doshisha Global MBA special. From the historic and “green” city of Kyoto, we aim to prepare future leaders to respond to the emerging needs of an increasingly diverse global economy.
