When the International University of Japan was founded in 1982, its mission was to develop future leaders with a high level of specialized theoretical and practical knowledge, as well as understanding and empathy toward the world’s variety of cultures, enhancing their ability to contribute to the global society.
I greatly appreciate the great support by the Japanese industrial, financial, and educational communities and from the local community in Niigata prefecture since IUJ’s establishment as the first graduate level professional school in which instruction is conducted in English.
In the 33 years that have passed, more than 3,600 global leaders from about 110 countries have come from our Graduate Schools of International Relations and International Management. On our campus, we have built a unique and global intellectual community, unsurpassed in the world. About 350 students from 40 countries live in the dormitories, study and research together with our faculty.
We were selected for the Top Global University Project of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) in September 2014, and now work on the Japanese language education for Japanese business practices at overseas bases and establishment for a network of people across Africa.
We would like to ask for your support and cooperation to IUJ as an organization that builds leaders with the talent, skill and sense of duty to work and researching for the benefit of the world.
