ACADEMICS

Rikkyo University will cultivate “new” global leaders.

Rikkyo University believes that “new” global leaders with the ability to respond to global issues and social demands and to discover and solve problems from a broad perspective are required for the future society It is.

Anytime, anywhere, with anyone - Even while the environment changes dramatically, it demon- strates our power and puts together everyone, it is the appearance of the “new” global leader that Rikko thinks.

Three powers to cultivate through learning unique to Rikkyo University.

(1) Innovative ability to flexibly respond to societies that are fluidized across borders and to create new mechanisms.
(2) Empathy and collaboration ability to solve problems with people with different cultures and customs with rich communication skills.
(3) Thinking ability to face difficult challenges on a global scale and theoretically elucidate the essence of the problem.

We will cultivate the three forces required of “new” global leaders through the “RIKKYO Learning Style” system of learning which was born and rebuilt Rikkyo Liberal Arts Education with the his- tory of 140 years.
