Kanazawa University has been chosen as a Type B (Global Traction Type) university
on this SGU project
As the globalization of society advances rapidly, training human resources who can thrive on the global stage in a wide range of fields is becoming a pressing need. As training of such advanced global resources is promoted strategically around the world, Japanese universities too need to enhance their systems for educating global leaders.
In order to train human resources who are tolerant of different cultures and contribute to solving issues on a global scale and human resources who have global perspectives and contribute proactively to the creation of successful local communities, there is a need to enhance international competitive strengths by increasing the global capabilities of organizations and systems, while putting to use the unique characteristics and strengths of each.
From now on,
adaptability to and richness of globalization will be key points in choosing a university
