Program Goals

What is the Japan Internship Program?

Although the number of Japanese companies expanding overseas business has increased in recent years due to the shrinkage of the domestic market, the shortage of "global talent" who is responsible for overseas development, especially for Small-and Medium-Sized Enterprises, has become a challenge.
Utilizing highly skilled foreign professionals, such as for participation in overseas expansion or creation of innovation with a new viewpoint, might be attributed to strengthening competitiveness of Japanese companies. However it has not advanced, especially in Small-and-Medium-Sized companies, due to their lack of experience in working with foreign talent or the network.

Given that, we hope to achieve the following results.

  1. Knowledge building aimed at new developments and expansion of overseas business
  2. Changing awareness through working with foreigners and experiencing cross-cultural communication
  3. Constructing networks and developing in-house systems in conjunction with overseas universities aimed at securing Highly-skilled foreign professionals
