Language Education

Participants must acquire the English language skill necessary to become leaders on the international stage. The Program will make it possible through an English language course run in conjunction with the British Council. The course curriculum will feature practical lessons such as presentations and academic writing in addition to content designed to enhance understanding of cultural elements found in social structures and systems.

North Carolina Ambition Camp

In addition, the Program will utilize the NU Tech office, established by the Nagoya University Initiatives for Industry, Academia and Government Corporation in North Carolina in the U.S., to work with the North Carolina State University to run ‘Ambition Camps’, or intensive residential programs. The creation of new industry is widespread in the U.S., and these camps will give Program participants important practical learning opportunities focused on entrepreneurial spirit and the ways businesses are run in international environments, as well as a chance to receive intensive language instruction.
