Business Japanese Class is conceived for those who wish to work for a Japanese company in or outside Japan. With the progress of globalization, Japanese companies’ expectations on foreign students as highly skilled professionals are rising too. On the other hand, the number of foreign students being employed in Japanese companies grows every year: according to data released by the Ministry of Justice, compared to 5 years ago, the number of foreign students who applied for conversion from student visa to working visa has increased of 65%, which is roughly 13,000 people. What Japanese companies demand the most, is the understanding of Japanese corporate culture and high communication skills. In Business Japanese Class, all while aiming at improving their Japanese to perform properly in business, students deepen their understanding of Japanese society and companies and acquire the knowledge and business manners required to work for a Japanese firm.
