Training Global Leaders for Sustainable Economic Development
As we progress toward a global society, the need to develop global leaders with the ability to understand diversity, analyze, then make accurate decisions and take action is ever increasing. In such circumstances, the Global Human Resource Development Unit of the University of Tsukuba is conducting research that orders a series of life spans from high school students to working adults as research targets with the goal of identifying tiered issues of characteristics of conscious and behavior needed for global human resources and developing a training method for the effective development of the next generation of global leaders responsible for sustainable development.
Specifically, we will conduct a survey based on questionnaires and interviews to develop developmental stages of global leadership, a global mindset, and investigate behavior, then perform analysis based on evidence obtained from multivariate analysis. So far, we have created and disseminated research results applicable to practical and educational settings through basic research, applied research in collaboration with companies and international organizations and government commissioned research.
Based on these results, we will continue to develop educational methods and programs for developing global leaders, while promoting the training of teachers in charge of the educational programs we have developed as well as the implementation of programs by the educators we train.
