A message from the IIE Center Director

Director of Institute of International Education
Naoya Ashihara

IIE was established in April, 2014 to realize one of Otemae’s goals, “foster students with outstanding problem-solving ability and international perspectives”.

IIE’s objectives are:

The following system was organized to accomplish our objectives. IIE is achieving significant outcomes. The new international education programs such as GJS, GBS and GCS, which are interactive courses conducted in English, have started. In 2014 we launched an IIE journal as a collection of academic papers on international education.
IIE spares no effort in improving educational environment for students. We are looking forward to seeing students with various cultural backgrounds from around the world and wish that they maximize their potentials and expand their fields of activities worldwide.
