Advanced Doctoral Program - Global Resource Management (GRM)
Doshisha University’s Global Resource Management Program is one of The Program for Leading Graduate Schools implemented by MEXT of Japan, aimed at providing world-class graduate education.
The goal of the GRM is to produce "global leaders" possessing a tenacious spirit and high ethical standards, who can assist emerging and developing countries, promote human security and inclusive growth, through global resource management, utilizing the knowledge from both the infrastructure science/resource and energy science and global studies. The "global leaders" means not just highly specialized researchers but PhDs who can pull together knowledge from various disciplines to advocate and promote sustainable development and multicultural harmony.
Now, we have approx. 40 students who are diligently engaged in researches and the program coursework.
