About the Local Satellite Campus
The Mongolia Satellite Campus is responsible for the implementation of the Transnational Doctoral Programs for Leading Professionals in Asian Countries offered by Nagoya University through ASCI in Mongolia. The Mongolian Satellite Campus is located in the heart of Ulaanbaatar city right next to the Government Palace. The Satellite Campus facilities include a classroom where students attend guidance sessions conducted by their supervisors via our video conference facilities. The Satellite Campus has three administrative staff members, one designated associate professor, and two advisors.
The hybrid doctoral program at the Satellite Campus is available for Mongolian citizens, who are employed as governmental officials, faculty members of national universities, researchers at national research institutions, lawyers and judges. Those who have completed a master degree program and wish to obtain a doctoral degree without suspending their important work for the government are all welcome to apply for the program.
Available Research Fields
- The doctoral program currently available at the Satellite Campus in Mongolia is in the field of law, through the Nagoya University Graduate School of Law (GSL) but we expect to expand into medicine in the future. Through our Satellite Campus and the ASCI program, it is hoped that we can contribute to the development of Mongolia by preparing early and mid career professionals in Mongolia to become future leaders.
In October 2014 one student began his studies in GSL through the ASCI program. Mr. Tsogt Tsend, the first student of Mongolia’s Satellite Campus program, is a judge of the Administrative Court of Appeals. He obtained his master’s degree in law in the United States of America and teaches at the National University of Mongolia. Mr. Tsend participates in a bi-weekly video conference with his supervisor, who is one of the foremost experts in Japanese Administrative Law today, Professor Katsuya Ichihashi.
