GPP Course List  2018-2019
* Course Descriptions will be Available in March 2018.

Basic Information

  • The Global Passport Program (GPP) courses are offered by the Faculty and the Graduate School of Business and Commerce.

  • The GPP offers students the opportunity to enroll in courses with a high degree of specialized content. In particular, students can cross-register for introductory level courses in the graduate school. Such classes will focus upon the topics of management, accounting, commerce, economics, and industrialization. By enrolling in these courses, students will increase both their practical and theoretical knowledge base. The majority of coursework will be in the form of discussions and presentations in classes with limited size, thus providing a highly stimulating environment for the enrollees.

  • Passport Members’ Workshop D”
    The participants of "Passport Members’ Workshop D" will learn to integrate practical experience with theoretical knowledge. To accomplish this task, real world problems will serve as case studies with which students can develop these skills and investigate complex issues. All activities are led by outside experts in international business. In this way we hope to develop the students' skills in adaptation, communication, and leadership so that they can cope with diverse working environments.
