Foreign Sister Schools(Affiliated Schools)

H.U.E. has established sister-school relationships with overseas universities and signed exchange agreements with other higher educational institutions abroad in an attempt to promote among both students and faculty, exchange programs, joint research, and academic symposia. Currently, we have five sister-schools overseas and fourteen other universities and schools with which we have student exchange programs.

NIBES (Network of International Business and Economics Schools) is an international academic and educational network that is presently composed of economic and business related educational institutions from 21 countries. HUE is the only member representing Japan. This consortium-type network is quite different from the normal one-to-one exchange agreements in that it stresses multi-lateral exchanges on a global basis. Examples of the latest programs on the agenda are the "Euro-campus," and the "Global Student Exchange Program." Both are internationally oriented programs requiring students to study in several different countries (sometimes Continents).
