Philosophy of Our Program理念


Fostering Leaders of Tomorrow in an Increasingly Global Society


It has been 130 years since Shigenobu Okuma established “Harmony between Eastern and Western Civilizations” as the founding principle of Waseda University. Since Okuma’s day, Asia, or what Okuma referred to as the “East”, has seen significant progress and, in many respects, has come to share much with “Western” countries, especially the United States. Yet as the Asia-Pacific region has emerged, politically and economically, as the world’s most dynamic region, the idea of “Harmony between Eastern and Western Civilizations” has taken on fresh meaning and new challenges. This program defines those who can deepen the understanding of the “Asia-Pacific region” and apply the development to produce global profit as true leaders of the times. We aim at fostering leaders of tomorrow who have the necessary knowledge, skills, and ethical perspectives to thrive in international society.
