International Business Studies was developed in response to the contemporary global need for personnel with the knowledge and skills to work in the international arena. The curriculum encompasses a general knowledge of cultures, economies and societies, the business knowledge required to succeed in a variety of careers, and the language abilities to work across borders. The program aims to equip graduates with the skills for effective and efficient operations in a multilingual and multicultural business environment.

Picture of

At the end of my high school life, I discovered TUJ. The programs seemed to be fairly well developed, along with a lot of support to help ease the transition. Furthermore, spending my university life in Tokyo would present me with unimaginable opportunities. When I came to TUJ, the administration was very helpful. A lot of the students were also friendly, which kept me from becoming lonely or developing severe culture shock. I chose International Business Studies as my major for two reasons—business has long been an interest of mine, and in Tokyo I would have hands-on experience with international business. The biggest skill I have gained is how to act professionally. I interned at the British Chamber of Commerce in Japan. The most important thing I learned was how to plan and execute a project with well-defined goals. After TUJ I plan on finding a job at a Japanese manufacturing company as I feel like my international skills would be best put to use in being a part of a traditional Japanese company that is seeking to either globalize or expand into overseas markets.
