 Message from the ASCI Director

ASCI Director
Prof. Fumio Isoda
 There are many early and mid career professionals in the public sector across Asia who hold master’s degrees and who desire to study further at leading international universities. However, work and family commitments often mean that it is not possible for them to pursue such  aspirations. To satisfy this need, Nagoya University has established ASCI, through which it offers the Transnational Doctoral Programs for Leading Professionals in Asian Countries.  While still a relatively new initiative, it has already attracted some very talented Doctoral candidates from across Asia. Through close supervision by Nagoya University’s highly respected academic faculty, the quality of the work produced by our Transnational Doctoral candidates is very high indeed.  I have absolute belief that through this program, Nagoya University will be able to make a substantial contribution to the capacity building of our Asian neighbors.  I am very excited to be a part of this groundbreaking program. I look forward to working together with our partner institutions to not only further education and research collaboration, and human resource development, but also to deepen our already strong friendships throughout the Asian region.
