Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University

Since its founding, Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University (APU) has been a leader in the globalisation of higher education in Japan. Half of our students come from 90 countries and regions outside Japan, making our campus an environment of cultural and linguistic diversity, providing an experience unmatched anywhere in Japan.

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

APU is the only AACSB-accredited university in Japan offering an English-language MBA and an undergraduate business curriculum in both English and Japanese. Our graduates join a network of professionals spanning 138 countries and regions.
