The TMI Master’s course aims to nurture the next generation of technology managers thorough rigorous training in the theories and practice of innovation management. Courses are delivered by faculty as well as visiting lecturers from industry and government.
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.
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.
