Josai Forms Academic Exchange Agreement with Thailand’s Rangsit University

On April 5th, Josai established an academic exchange agreement with Thailand’s Rangsit University.

As part of Josai’s Mid-term Target of strengthening international exchange to cultivate global human resources, our university has formed academic exchange programs with a variety of institutions worldwide, focusing recently on universities in Central Europe and other parts of Asia.

On the day of the signing, Prof. Piyasuda Mawai, Ph.D., Director of the Faculty of Liberal Arts, arrived with his delegation, and, after meeting with Chancellor Noriko Mizuta and other executives from Josai, finalized the agreement.

Rangsit University is a private institution located in Thailand’s Pathum Thani prefecture, which neighbors the capital of Bangkok. It was first founded as a single-subject college in 1988 before becoming a full-fledged university in 1990. At present, Rangsit offers 82 different bachelor’s degrees, 31 master’s degrees, and seven doctoral degrees, and counts an enrollment of approximately 14,000 students in all. With their emphasis on the five different fields of Health-Science, Social Humanities, Engineering Technology, Business-Economics, and Fine Art, Rangsit offers a wide-range of possibilities for academic exchange with our university.

After finalizing the exchange agreement, the Rangsit delegation proceeded to Josai International University’s Chiba Togane Campus where they were given a tour of the premises and met with JIU Vice President Masato Kurabayashi, the Acting Chair of International Humanities, and Language Education Center Director Maria Shiguemi Ichiyama to discuss concrete measures for a student exchange program, focusing particularly on Japanese language education. Considering Rangsit University’s comprehensive English language program, one can expect many fruitful exchanges that incorporate this and other subjects in the near future.
