Graduate School offering a CFP® Certification Program


Message from the Dean

Toyo Gakuen University established its Faculty of Business Administration in 2002 and began teaching practical management and economics that can be applied in the real world. The Graduate School of Business Administration was established in 2008 as an institution for developing business professionals with a higher level of expertise and knowledge.

At the Graduate School of Business Administration, our faculty members with excellent research performance and ones with extensive experience in the business world together to provide practical education that is modeled on modern business schools.

The greatest feature of the school is the one-on-one education provided in small-group classes. Naturally, our faculty members work closely with our students, providing supervision and guidance empathetically.

In the academic year 2017, the graduate school began to offer a Certified Financial Planner® (CFP®) Certification Education Program as an educational institution registered in the Japan Association for Financial Planners. This means that students who take designated courses and complete the master program will be eligible for the qualifying examination for CFP®, an international qualification, and are qualified as an Affiliated Financial Planner (AFP).

Located in the center of Tokyo, the campus is accessible from offices of many business enterprises. We therefore welcome applications from people working in business.
