English Presentation Training Program for Yokohama Municipal Minami High School was Held

On July 14th, 2018, IUJ welcomed 20 students of Yokohama Municipal Minami High School (Minami High School) to give English training program which attempted enhancing their presentation skill.

Minami High School, which designated as Super Global High School (SGH), aims at “developing next generation business leaders from international city, Yokohama.” Under this initiative, based on “time of integrated study”, they attempts to research and develop next generation leaders who can conceive ideas which would solve social challenges mainly in south-east Asia area, and who can carry out those ideas by creating a sustainable social business.

In this English training program, all the language was English including presentations about their research results from the students. Professor Mohammed K. Ahmed, specially appointed professor of Graduate School of International Management, gave lectures such as how to speak before audiences, what more effective structure to make people understand your idea is, and a best style in Q/A. In addition, as 6 IUJ students from Asia participated in this program as facilitators, we are sure that discussion in groups and further interactions through lunch break and campus tour with facilitators enriched their day.

IUJ will continue to lead the globalization in this society through collaborating with SGH which aims at developing global leaders who would work on international stage.

Living in Myanmar right now, and looking to further your education in Japan? The International University of Japan is participating in an Study-in-Japan Fair held by Okayama University Japan Educational Information Center Myanmar on Saturday, August 18 to give prospective students insight into what the school has to offer.

IUJ was established in 1982 as the first English-language graduate school in Japan. Currently, 360 students from 60 countries undertake studies at the university, with over 4,300 additional alumni hailing from a total of 129 countries. It truly lives up to being the university Where the World Gathers.

IUJ is a school that is continually growing – not just by the number of countries that students hail from, but in its international standing. The Graduate School of International Management proudly obtained accreditation from AACSB International in February this year, and the University’s PhD program was inaugurated in 2015 with the number of doctoral candidates increasing annually.

At the IUJ booth at this Study-in-Japan Fair in Yangon,  those interested in applying to IUJ for the 2019 academic year or in the near future will be given the opportunity to find out more about what the university has to offer, as well as the chance to meet faculty and alumni for first hand accounts of their experiences with the school.

Dr. Andrea Pressello received the 14th Nakasone Yasuhiro Incentive Award

Dr. Andrea Pressello, an IR part-time lecturer received the 14th Nakasone Yasuhiro Incentive Award by the Nakasone Yasuhiro Peace Institute on July 6th.

~Quotation from the Nakasone Yasuhiro Peace Institute website~
Reason for selection: As a student from Italy who came to study at GRIPS, Mr. Pressello pursued research in Japan’s postwar Southeast Asia policy toward a PhD degree in international relations. He has been teaching at GRIPS, International University of Japan, and Keio University, where he gives comprehensive lectures on Japanese history and culture, diplomatic history and foreign policy to international students, with a perspective that differs from that of a Japanese professor. The JICA-University Alliance, begun in commemoration of the 150th Anniversary of the Meiji Restoration, will actively collaborate with GRIPS and International University. Highly evaluated for his work in both research and practical arenas, Mr. Pressello is expected to play an important role of bridging Japan and the world.

The Nakasone Yasuhiro Award is given to both honor meaningful achievements in the political, economic, cultural, and science and technology fields and encourage further endeavors which will contribute toward the realization of true peace and prosperity in the international community.
