Chairman's Message


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 25 years that have passed, more than 2,900 global leaders from about 100 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 300 students from 50 countries live in the dormitories, study and research together with our faculty.

In addition, we have developed a rich educational infrastructure to accommodate the information society, and have a strong relationship with the Center for Global Communications (GLOCOM), which, as a leader in the research into information society, stresses "Chigyo", the study of knowledge.

We are now preparing a broad revision of our curricula for the 2006 academic year to truly train leaders who can contribute to the solution of a variety of current and future global problems including the wholesome development and expansion of Asia and Japan.

Therefore, 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 in the 21st Century.
