Tokyo International University is an institution of higher learning with a strong international focus, with a satellite campus Tokyo International University of America (TIUA) at Willamette University in Salem, Oregon, USA. The university is actually located in the area surrounding Kawagoe City in Saitama Prefecture, Japan, which is a part of the Greater Tokyo Area.
The university was founded in 1965 by Taizo Kaneko as International College of Commerce. In 1986 the school was renamed Tokyo International University. In 2014, the university launched the English Track (E-Track) Program. This program focuses on providing international students and others with the opportunity to obtain a degree in an English-medium curriculum. There are two majors offered in the English Track Program: International Relations and Business Economics.
Nevertheless, the one-year program at TIUA enables students to pursue academic goals, while developing intercultural awareness. Programs are designed to offer students opportunities to learn through experience about other people and cultures. As a result, students also gain and share insights about their own traditions and values.
