Tufts Japanese Culture Club is excited to bring 13 Japanese college students from the University of Tokyo & Keio University to lead a discussion regarding career education for university students.
Japanese students are often criticized for studying less than Western students and have difficultly finding a balance between taking relevant classes and doing internships. According to the researchers of the Knowledge Investment Program, there is a mismatch between what the career-oriented students feel the need to study in order to be successful and what companies are looking for in their employees. The researchers at KIP have proposed the integration of “industrial-academic collaboration classes” in order to solve this problem. They define “industrial-academic collaboration classes” as classes that both professors and company staff members offer.
Join us for a 15 minute research presentation by KIP, followed by by open-discussion among KIP students and Tufts students to answer the question, Should students be required to take industrial-academic collaboration classes?
A dinner reception and mingle time with the Japanese students will follow the discussion! If you would like to attend be sure to click “Going” on the facebook event, so we have a headcount for the dinner!! Hope to see you there.
