Innovative Educational Framework

Response to Globalization

To present the strategy of the city of Tokyo in the 21st century on the global stage, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government drew up “Tokyo in the Next Decade” in December 2006. It aims at dynamic development through collaboration and solidarity with various Asian cities. Part of the scheme involves strategically developing and supporting people who will play a leadership role in the future of Asia.

Taking these points into consideration, the school is accepting foreign students mainly from Asia to ensure that the school takes responsibility for promoting industry in Tokyo through the development of high-level specialists.

 Based on mutual agreement with overseas universities, the school will also make an effort to enhance education research activities, such as through the joint implementation of PBL.
