The Graduate School of Economics, Kyoto University launched a new graduate program, “International Joint Master Degree Program in Global Markets, Local Creativities,” in September 2021. This is a two-year master’s degree program in which students study at the University of Glasgow (UK), the University of Barcelona (Spain), and Kyoto University (Japan). Upon completion of the jointly established degree program, graduates will receive a single joint degree conferred by the three universities. The joint degree program is one of several “study tracks” on an integrated international program called “GLOCAL” which is comprised of a seven-university consortium. The GLOCAL program aims to provide students with interdisciplinary and international academic training and practical skills through the complementary and interdisciplinary expertise, resources and networks of seven leading universities in seven innovative cities.
