-Challenging a world of globalization! Let us do battle with overseas students!!ー

QREC Global Challenge & Creation
(G.C&C)

Global Challenge and Creation(G.C&C)provides opportunities for students to compete directly with overseas students in student business plan competitions, and gives them experience in the process of turning their ideas into practical services and goods that will bring value to society. Its purpose is to foster and let students acquire a fully-fledged entrepreneurship that will achieve results in international society, and a sense of innovation and globalism. Plenty of chances are given for students to apply to take part in overseas business plan competitions and hachkathons, and support is provided through mentoring and financial aid for air fares and so on.
