  • Module 1 (Comprehensive Courses)

This module covers two topics including Asian Politics, Society, History and Culture & Entrepreneurship, Business and Global Governance.

  • Module 2 & Module 3 (Core & Advanced Courses)

Students will be required to take module 1 to obtain the comprehensive knowledge, and each student should select a second module (module 2 or 3) according to their interest in either global governance or Asian studies. Both of module 2 and 3 are particularly composed of core and advanced courses. Therefore, in order to thoroughly complete the program, every student will take six courses in total.

Beyond standard academics, G2S2 academics and professionals will lead expert seminars. This will enable participants from all fields to engage at high levels and immerse themselves in the most pressing challenges facing various communities, including business, technology, humanitarian, security, and diplomatic fields.
