Esade Law School and Hitotsubashi University in Japan partner to increase their students’ international mobility

The agreement expands the international academic exchange offering for students of both institutions in the areas of international law, global governance, geopolitics and economics

Esade Law School has signed its first academic exchange agreement in Japan with the prestigious Hitotsubashi University in order to strengthen the international mobility of students from both institutions in the fields of international law, global governance, geopolitics, and economics. This new academic alliance adds to Esade Law School’s internationalisation strategy, which aims to widen its network of academic partners abroad and thus increase the international educational offering for students in the areas of law, political science, economics, and international relations.

“We are delighted to widen our international academic exchange ties with a highly reputable educational institution such as Hitotsubashi University,” said Esade Law School Dean Eduardo Berché. “This new agreement contributes to our School’s effort to innovate in our educational offering, and to provide our students with transformative experiences that give them a global vision along with the knowledge and skills the labour market is going to demand in the future. In short, learning experiences that make a difference in their professional careers.”

“This new agreement with Esade Law School is a fantastic opportunity that will extend the educational offering for our students in the fields of economics, sociology, and law,” added Hitotsubashi University President Koichi Tadenuma. “In an increasingly globalised world it is crucial to cooperate with other universities in different countries and regions to provide educational and cultural experiences in a diverse environment.”

International learning experiences

This academic year Esade Law School has launched its new Bachelor in Global Governance, Economics & Legal Order, a multidisciplinary programme providing a solid background in global governance, economics and law. During the second year, students choose to specialise in global economics or international politics and focus on one geographic region (Asia, the Middle East, Latin America or the English-speaking world) through an international mobility programme. It is in the framework of this programme that Esade students will be able to take advantage of this new agreement with Hitotsubashi University. Likewise, students from the Japanese institution’s faculties of economics, law, social sciences, and international politics will have the chance to visit Esade on an exchange.
