APU conduct the GAIA (Global Internship with Alumni) program, which provides internships under the graduates of our university who are active both in Japan and overseas.
On May 13, 2022, four students who participated in GAIA at Intage Vietnam LLC and MONOVA TRADE LLC held an activity briefing session this spring.
PHAM Le Cong Kien(College of International Management 3rd year, Vietnam), who participated online due to the pandemic, commented, “Although I participated in the internship online, I felt very warmly welcomed by the alumni and am very grateful for their extensive support in various situations.” Momoka Ichikawa(College of Asia Pacific Studies 2nd year, Japan), who stayed in Mongolia for one month while taking part in the internship, concluded, “It was a very beneficial experience that will have impact not only my university life but also my life as a whole.” All four participants were also advised by the hosting seniors to “broaden your global network, which can only be found at APU, while you are a student.”
Students from all over the world study at APU and pursue a wide range of goals after graduation. GAIA is just one program that supports students in forming career paths over the course of their four years of study at the university. Programs like these give students the opportunity to network with industry professionals while learning practical skills.
