Tokyo International University is a private, research-oriented liberal arts university in collaboration with Tokyo University in Greater Tokyo Area that is regarded as one of the most international institutions of higher learning in Japan.
Tokyo International University (TIU) is a private university founded in 1965 and is accredited by the Ministry of Education of Japan (MEXT). Since its founding, TIU has grown to encompass five undergraduate and four graduate schools, offering study options in business, commerce, and social sciences. In addition to Japanese-medium degree programs, in 2014 TIU began offering degree programs taught in English through its E-Track Program.
Staying consistent with its educational philosophy of “nurturing truly international-minded people,” TIU boasts a highly international learning environment. Of TIU’s approximately 6,500 students, roughly 1,300 are international students from 68 countries. Students have opportunities for further study abroad through TIU’s impressive study abroad network, including the campus of sister school Willamette University in Salem, Oregon. Through practice-oriented courses taught by an international faculty, interaction with peers from around the world, and exploring the exciting city of Tokyo, students can develop the skills and experiences needed to launch their global careers.
