The curriculum encompasses a general knowledge of economies and societies, the business knowledge required to succeed in a variety of careers, and the language abilities to work across borders. 


TUJ offers a truly international experience—inside and outside the classroom, as well as among students and faculty. This will prepare you for a challenging career anywhere in the world. The innovative International Business Studies program from Temple University, Japan Campus (TUJ) challenges students to integrate language studies, an understanding of world affairs and hands-on internship experience. Students will develop the global mindset that multinational institutions need in the 21st century.

TUJ students learn how to work with people of similar backgrounds and with those who are often quite different in how they approach life and their studies. We train our students not only to be multilingual but also to navigate across cultures and borders. Our program teaches them to think critically, form a well-reasoned opinion, and then capably express that opinion. This is accomplished through class participation, visits to local businesses, and by bringing savvy international professionals into the classroom. With those tools, our graduates move confidently into the world and launch productive, interesting and viable global careers.

Tokyo is one of the world’s most vibrant cities, and living here represents the chance to pursue an expanded range of career opportunities. Located in the heart of Tokyo’s diplomatic and international business community, TUJ consistently takes advantage of the city’s diversity and multinational character.
