IUJ Students Diversity
The International University of Japan is the home to nearly 400 graduate-level students from more than 45 countries each and every year. Because IUJ is located in the beautiful countryside of Japan, we have a thriving, multi-cultural, multi-ethnic, multi-religious campus environment that provides each of our students with the cultural sensitivity and insights required to lead a global company.
After 30 years, IUJ now has more than 3,000 alumni living and working in more than 100 countries around the world. Therefore, anywhere in the world that you are interested in operating your business, or establishing strong partnerships, it is highly likely that an IUJ alumnus will be there to collaborate with your efforts.
Our programs provide the ideal opportunity to take on leadership roles through team projects across many of our courses. Through working with international colleagues on case challenges as well as real business projects, all participants in our IMBA program will gain new insights into how to eff ectively lead cross-functional, global teams. Additionally, every student will be exposed to new ways of thinking and analyzing the materials provided in order to create the most eff ective solutions to course projects together with their colleagues.
Summer Capstone Courses
Capstone courses are the final, wrap-up for the IMBA program. Taken in the summer months prior to graduation, they integrate elements from multiple courses already completed to address timely managerial issues and challenges of competitive importance. Capstone courses consist of three one-credit courses; “International Career Development”, “Leadership Bootcamp”, and “Strategy Simulation”, which all reflect emerging issues of global competition.
