Messages from Alumni
Studying at JIU provided me with a solid foundation for my role in the Embassy.

Economic Officer at the Embassy of Hungary in Japan
I studied abroad in the Department of Management at Josai University. My goal was to be a Hungarian diplomat. I wanted to study more in this area, so I decided to proceed to the Graduate School of International Administration at Josai International University, where I could study the international economics as well as international relations. I gained invaluable experiences by interacting with many students from all over the world. Also, I was able to participate in events at the Embassy of Hungary as a part of my university activities.
I currently work at the Embassy of Hungary in Japan, which is my dream job. In the fall of 2012, I took the Foreign Service examination and became an economics officer at the Embassy of Hungary in Japan. In order to strengthen the diplomatic relations between Hungary and Japan, I work hard every day. I engage in a variety of efforts so that Hungarian culture in Japan and the economic exchange between the two countries can be further promoted. I want to make use of my degree in International Administration and apply the knowledge I gained to my duties as a diplomat.
By taking advantage of literacy skills that I acquired through the program, I want to become someone who can contribute to society.

Human Resources at Asahi Tec Corporation
As a student at the Graduate School of International Administration, I was aware of the importance of “literacy” skills, the skills to process information from input to output based upon analysis and interpretation. I am glad that I improved them while I was here. Reflecting on my development of “literacy” skills through writing my master’s thesis, conducting research activities, and making presentations in classes and events, I believe that these were the critical skills that enabled me to enjoy a wide range of experiences, such as international exchange projects off-campus and symposiums for policy study groups.
Now I work in the Human Resources at Asahi Tech Corporation, where I am responsible for recruiting and training employees. That said, because it has been only half a year since I began to work for the company and three months since I was assigned to the current department, there is a variety of challenging tasks every day. For example, when I make a meeting-minutes document for an important executive meeting, I feel the weight of responsibilities on my sholder. By taking advantage of “literacy” skills I developed during the program, I would like to continue contributing to my organization and society.
Through my understanding of international administration. I am now working to help future JIU graduates.

Josai International Center for the Promotion of Art
and Science (JICPAS) at Josai University Educational
I graduated from the department of inter-cultural studies at the university and proceeded straight to the graduate program. While at the university, I mainly studied international relations, including world economics, culture, and religion. Subsequently, I took up this issue among nations in the Middle East and wrote a master’s thesis on that topic. In the wide range of courses in the program, I studied the state of international relations and societies from every angle and identified numerous issues and problems and potential solutions. I believe that I gained valuable lessons from the faculty and international students with diverse backgrounds.
Upon completing the program, I started working as a staff member at Josai International University. Taking advantage of being among the alumni myself, I try to increase the students satisfaction with campus life by playing a role of bridging the students and faculty. I have been mainly involved with undergraduate students, but now I also perform a variety of works from coordinating the curriculums to planning and executing industry-university cooperation lectures.
