MA Program


*Shiseido Company, Limited
*Completed the MA Program in March 2012

When I was studying in GSAPS I learned a lot about international educational development, relations between China and Japan, African issues statistics and writing skills. There are professors with global experience and I was taught a lot about the world I did not know before. In addition, through participation in international conferences, I met a variety of famous scholars, and I felt that my ability to think logically and express myself improved through giving presentations. The students of GSAPS have very high level of language ability and a global perspective which I found stimulating. Due to this stimulus, rather than focusing on just one country, I wanted to have a more well-rounded global perspective. So I wrote about the educational cooperation between Africa and China for my Master’s thesis and I also succeeded in conducting fieldwork in both China and Africa. I appreciate the chance I had to meet with strict but friendly professors and the friends I made during the multi-national seminars in GSAPS. I believe these opportunities will be a great asset for me in the future. Thank you very much for the life in GSAPS. Since graduating I have been working in the international sales department of Shiseido. I will do my best to use what I learned to continue to grow and contribute to the global society
