International students who chose Japan as their study abroad destination may have come up with the decision because of Japan’s high educational standards, while for others the attraction is Japan’s rich cultural heritage. The Graduate School of Business and Commerce of Keio University and the National Tax Agency have responded to this mission of the JJ/WBGSP by training five scholars each year in the area of tax policy and management.
Keio University abbreviated as Keio or Keidai is a Japanese private university located in Minato, Tokyo. It is known as the oldest institute of modern higher education in Japan. Founder Fukuzawa Yukichi originally established it as a school for Western studies in 1858 in Edo (now Tokyo).
Since 1996, the Graduate School of Business and Commerce of Keio University has been training promising tax personnel in the field of tax policy and administration with its Master’s Degree Program in Taxation Policy and Management. This program brings together the cooperation of Keio University, the National Tax Agency of Japan(NTA), and the World Bank in an alliance between public and private institutions.
