Wanted: Sister Colleges!

Niigata University of Management is seeking new sister schools, especially in English-speaking countries. Currently, our school has accepted many Asian students from countries such as China, Russia and South Korea. Now the school’s aim is to branch out into other regions.

Our school focuses on business management, and our students mainly study commerce, accounting, bookkeeping and computer science. Recently, we have launched education courses for those who wish to become high school teachers of commerce, social studies, information science and English.

Because of globalization, business students need to be equipped with English skills, the lingua franca of the world. However, recently it has been revealed that fewer Japanese students are studying abroad. Our school wants to do its part to reverse this trend and to also introduce Japan to the next generation of overseas business leaders.

We hope to find a university or college willing to administer crash courses in English as a foreign language for our students. Our university would likewise accept students who wish to study in Japan. Longer exchanges in Japan for the university’s foreign students could also be arranged.
