On Monday, November 25, 2013, a debriefing session and closing ceremony were held for three employees from Sony Corporation and two employees from NEC Corporation on the 2013 Fall semester, first quarter Global Competency Enhancement Program (GCEP).
During the debriefing session, each trainee delivered a short presentation in English about their experiences at APU and received feedback from English conversation partners and students who studied alongside them throughout the program.
Dean of Careers YAMAMOTO Susumu began the closing ceremony proceedings with a speech before presenting each trainee with a certificate of completion.
Next, two trainees spoke of their impressions of APU and future aspirations. AOKI Kentaro, from Sony Corporation, said, "This was an invaluable experience. I plan to make the most of the communication skills and intercultural understanding skills I gained at APU in my work," while HARADA Yusuke, from NEC Corporation, commented, "I made many friends at APU and was only able to complete the training with their support. I will always cherish the friendships I made here." HR representatives from both companies then shared their impressions of the program.
The Global Competency Enhancement Program (GCEP) was developed to provide industry and business trainees the opportunity to experience our multicultural and multilingual campus environment while studying at the undergraduate or graduate level.
