The root of Tokyo Keizai University goes back to Okura Commerce School, established in 1900 with a focus on the development of young people who would be active on the international stage, and has subsequently made inestimable contributions to the development of contemporary business in Japan.

Internships Provide a Practical Understanding
Each Department offers its version of practical education to provide an understanding of the practical aspects of society. Subjects focusing on practical themes provides an understanding of society, followed by internships to gain experience in the workplace. Internships begin with such basic skills as the correct form of greeting in the workplace and the manner of accepting business cards before students experience actual business operations. Facing the realities of society helps students gain a deeper understanding.
