TUJ offers a truly international experience—inside and outside the classroom, as well as among students and faculty. This will prepare you for a challenging career anywhere in the world. The innovative International Business Studies program challenges students to integrate language studies, an understanding of world affairs and hands-on internship experience. Students will develop the global mindset that multinational institutions need in the 21st century.

TUJ students learn how to work with people of similar backgrounds and with those who are often quite different in how they approach life and their studies. We train our students not only to be multilingual but also to navigate across cultures and borders. Our program teaches them to think critically, form a well-reasoned opinion, and then capably express that opinion. This is accomplished through class participation, visits to local businesses, and by bringing savvy international professionals into the classroom. With those tools, our graduates move confidently into the world and launch productive, interesting and viable global careers.

Tokyo is one of the world’s most vibrant cities, and living here represents the chance to pursue an expanded range of career opportunities.

​​Company: Mitsubishi FUSO Truck and Bus Corporation

Class of 2021
Major: International Business Studies

I took a big leap of faith and left my career of six years to follow a dream that started in Japan at Temple University, Japan Campus. My overall experience with the TUJ community, staff and students has made my initial start in Japan a success. In addition to my education, I also had the chance to network with amazing individuals from around the world. With the help of the skills taught by TUJ professors, I completed my goal of graduating. By making many friends along the way, and through the TUJ Job Fair, I was offered a full-time job with Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation. With the right mindset, the opportunities at TUJ can help you find success not only in Japan but also around the world.
