The curriculum consists of classes offered by the Department of TMI, project-based training courses and the completion of a master’s thesis.

The classes are divided into three groups based on a main topic of study.
• Technology Development (Group A)
• Management Science (Group B)
• Intellectual Property Management (Group C)

To obtain a master’s degree, at least three classes from Group A; three classes from Group B; and one class from Group C must be taken. The classes are taught in English, with some also taught in Japanese. Supplementary Japanese courses are also provided if necessary.

In addition to project-based training and group-work, students will also be expected to write a thesis on a topic of their own choosing. Students also have the opportunity to take an internship at a company, with students in the past working at electronics, automobile, trading, international law, and consulting firms. We accept seven students each year; exceptional candidates will be nominated for a Japanese government scholarship.
