Half of our students come from about 90 countries and regions outside of Japan, making our campus an environment of cultural and linguistic diversity, providing an experience unmatched anywhere in Japan.

Students in our Graduate School of Asia Pacific Studies and Graduate School of Management study exclusively in English, and our undergraduate programmes give students the opportunity to take courses in Japanese and English.

APU is the only AACSB-accredited Japanese university to offer an English-language MBA and an undergraduate business curriculum in English and Japanese. Our graduates join a network of professionals spanning over 140 countries and regions.
