International Exchange


It’s wonderful to encounter new things. Now is the time to do it.

An agreement with Central Washington State University (CWU) in the United States was formed in June of 1990 to encourage exchange between our students.
CWU is located about 160 km East of Seattle in the town of Ellensburg. It is a comprehensive university with roughly 8,000 undergraduate students and 800 graduate students.


Every year many students from each department join this trip during the summer vacation and spend two weeks at CWU where they attend English classes and take sightseeing trips.

◎The CWU Summer Program is a language study and exchange program that lasts about three weeks and is held in August each year.

 Global Business Study Tour

GBSTThe Global Business Study Course is a week-long program offered in March for first year students to visit corporations and universities overseas. We offer students two courses; one to India and one to South Korea. By visiting corporations that are expanding globally and interacting with local university students we offer students the opportunity to acquire an international perspective and cultivate the spirit of international cooperation. In addition, we aim to develop capable, global citizens who can contribute in various fields to a society that will continue to internationalize.
