PBTS (Project Based Team Study)

PBTS    The highlighted feature of our program is “PBTS (Project Based Team Study)” modeled on research cases in actual businesses. In PBTS, the passive learning style of PBL (Project Based Learning) is replaced with independent, competitive and goal-oriented team study. This is an education system to develop students’ specialty and interpersonal skills most effectively through team study in which students with different backgrounds work together through friendly rivalry on the theme selected by themselves. The Study commons serves as the activity base, where many mentors consisting of multinational members support students. Team members will work together and compete with other teams, and jointly write a sub-thesis in English which is to be used as a screening material in the doctorate degree examination.
