Three Types of Global Individuals at Chuo

Chuo University works to foster Global Generalists, Global Leaders, and Global Specialists, young people equipped with various capabilities and language abilities, along with practical skills and awareness of diversity.


Global Generalists engage with others proactively to develop mutual understanding, possess an international mindset, and establish their identity in diverse environments. Furthermore, they seek:

  • A broad range of general knowledge and communication skills
  • The ability to cooperate in and communicate with those from diverse backgrounds
  • The ability to adapt to different values and to understand others’ history and culture

Global Leaders solve problems open-mindedly and lead in the development of new values. They aim to develop:

Global Specialists generate new value through specialized knowledge and experience, and possess advanced communication skills to apply globally. They seek:

  • The ability to communicate their specialty in a foreign language
