 Starting from 2013, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) brought forward a nation-wide project (SGH) to develop the next generation of global leaders. Our school took part in this 5-year project, and since 2014 has been designated as one of the 56 participating schools in Japan.

 More specifically, our school is approaching the fostering of global talent by:

“Developing vital skills in Japan’s future global leaders through collaboration with colleges and industries.”

Goals and objectives

(1) General Goal
 With the SGH Program, our school, the Takasaki Municipal High School of Takasaki City University of Economics, is focusing mainly on collaborations between the industrial and the educational sectors, particularly on the strategies of overseas expansion for Japanese companies.
 This overarching theme of research goes though all three school grades and is constructed with the aim of developing various skills, as described below.

(2) Skills
