International Business Studies

(College of Liberal Arts)

Temple University, Japan Campus (TUJ), located in Tokyo, offers a Bachelor of Science in International Business Studies (IBS). TUJ offers a truly international experience - inside and outside the classroom, as well as among students and faculty. This program will prepare students for a challenging career anywhere in the world.

The IBS program challenges students to integrate international business with language studies, an understanding of world affairs and hands-on internship experience. Students develop the global mindset that multinational firms need in the 21st century.

IBS students work on teams with people of similar backgrounds and with those who are often quite different in how they approach life and their studies. TUJ encourages students not only to be multilingual, but also to understand how to navigate across cultures and borders. The IBS program teaches them to think critically, form a well-reasoned opinion, and then capably express that opinion. This is accomplished through class participation, visits to local businesses, and by bringing savvy international business people in the classroom. With those tools, TUJ graduates move confidently into the world of international business and launch productive, fulfilling and viable global careers.

The Bachelor of Science in International Business Studies will be conferred upon a student after the completion of 123 credits across the following requirement categories.
