In “An Encouragement of Learning” the founder of Keio University Yukichi Fukuzawa, says “The essence of learning lies rather in its practical application, without which learning is still ignorance.” This tradition of practical learning continues at Keio SFC. In seminars, students will hone their problem identification and problem solving skills, using their research to produce a result which solves a real life problem for the benefit of society.
Your seminar could be local in scale, or it could take you halfway around the world. Here are some examples of Keio SFC global projects
