International Business Studies

The Temple University Japan Campus (TUJ), located in Tokyo, offers the Bachelor of Science in International Business Studies. 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.

This program will challenge students to integrate language studies, an understanding of world affairs and hands-on internship experience. Students will develop the global mind set that multinational firms need in the 21st century.

Students learn how to work with people of similar backgrounds and with those who are often quite different in how they approach life and their studies. TUJ trains students not only to be multilingual but also to navigate business across cultures and borders. This 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 into the classroom. With those tools, TUJ graduates move confidently into the world of international business and launch productive, interesting and viable global careers.

The Bachelor of Science in International Business Studies will be conferred upon a student after the completion of 124 credits across the following requirement categories:

  • 29-36 credit hours of General Education courses (depending on waivers granted)
