The total number of graduates of the GLP-GEfIL program, which started in 2015, has reached 198.

The event was held online under the declaration of emergency due to the pandemic. We celebrated 49 graduates with the participation of 21 guests from 12 sponsor companies that kindly continue to support the program.

Following the virtual awarding of the certificates of completion and the congratulatory message from Professor Shirahase, executive vice president of UTokyo, we received a congratulatory address from Professor Okubo, executive vice president. In addition, we received a congratulatory message from Mr. Ohno, general manager of Sumitomo Corporation, as a representative of all sponsor companies.

The response message was given by He Youru, from the Faculty of Economics, who was the representative of the graduates. Youru will be an officer of the GEfIL ALUMNI GROUP from this year, and will actively work to connect GEfIL students and graduates.

The 49 graduates studied very hard to complete this tough program, particularly in the midst of the pandemic towards the end of the program. We truly hope all the graduates will continue to have fruitful success in the future.
