Regarding the establishment of GGLI for career support and the start of GSAS program for GIS students:

On April 1st, 2023, GIS is pleased to announce that it has established a collaborative organization called GGLI (GIS Global Leadership Initiative) composed of highly experienced business professionals (fellows) to support GIS students. The fellows are drawn from a wide range of business sectors and will be involved in lectures, workshops, etc. to give students practical insights into various issues relating to business and society. This will greatly improve the future prospects of GIS students, especially those who aspire to work for Japanese global companies or foreign companies, as well as those interested in entrepreneurship. Furthermore, we would like to announce that we have officially launched the GSAS (Graduate School Application Support) program designed to support GIS students who wish to continue to study at overseas graduate school, as the number of our high-flying students has been on the rise in recent years. In addition to the career support provided by the university's career center, GIS will make GGLI and GSAS the main pillars of career support for GIS students. 

Since its establishment in April 2008, GIS has provided a liberal arts education entirely in English and has produced many leaders who are active domestically and internationally. However, how we provide career support for GIS students as a faculty was a challenge. This is because GIS has many students who have spent a certain period of time living abroad and have been influenced by the thinking of their host country, resulting in diverse perspectives on life and occupations. As a result, providing standardized career support has been difficult. For example, a certain number of GIS students are more interested in living their lives in a way that is true to themselves and enriching their own lives, rather than simply working for famous Japanese corporations via the traditional job-hunting process in Japan. Additionally, some students wish to continue to study at overseas graduate school right after their graduation, while others follow this path after several years working experience. We respect this diverse approach to work and study among our students, particularly the appreciation that obtaining a master's or doctorate degree is essential for future success, as such views are commonly held among global leaders. The establishment of GGLI and the launch of GSAS are rooted in these backgrounds.

The world is changing more rapidly than we think. The global population exceeded 8 billion in November 2022, and recent advances in AI technology have been remarkable. GIS aims to build a more solid system to respond quickly and appropriately to such environmental changes, and to produce and cultivate even more "leaders who have acquired global standards."
