2020/01/05

ICT innovator course 2019 started on October, 2019. The new students from different 15 countries including Japan were welcomed by many guests from government office, private companies, and members of the KIC faculty.

The new students of ICT Innovator course 2019 work on every lecture like “Tankyu Practice” diligently.

In the “Tankyu Practice”, students verified and substantiated from the viewpoint of the “sources of money”, “skills/know-how”, and “human resources”. Then they made the “Tankyu Chart” based on the “Tankyu Practice” method as the hypothesis for solving the problems and providing additional value. Finally, they are ready to give presentations.

They also work on every event diligently in KIC.

A tea party was held for welcoming the students. This party also aimed to promote a good relationship between the students and the faculty members.

In the group-by-group competition, students participated in games where they had to guess the pictures someone drew on a whiteboard. Everyone had a good time.

Moreover, they participated in presentation session of ideas about "Bold Business for a Better Planet" in“Hult Prize On Campus”. The Hult Prize Foundation transforms how young people envision their own possibilities as leaders of change in the world around them. With a US $1,000,000 global startup prize as its anchor activity, the Hult Prize has brought impact-focused programs, events and trainings to over a million students globally, creating a pathway for youth everywhere to take action to build a better world.
