About the University
We educate students who will succeed in the business world in response to the needs of our changing world.
Shizuoka Sangyo University (SSU) makes every effort to offer students cutting-edge “Business Education” which enables them to think, act and succeed in the business orld.
Our practically-oriented courses focus on the solution of real problems in today’s society, through innovative “Active Learning” approaches even outside classrooms or through various endowed courses provided by local businesses, organizations and governments, so that students can learn the real challenges or tasks at work from the professionals working on the frontiers of the business world. SSU also deals with some requests from local governments and considers their problems together with students, eager to give them some proposals or to find out solutions for them.
SSU doesn’t have its own student accommodations or dormitories. Most overseas students live near the campus themselves. We are happy to help them find their rooms in cooperation with local real estate agents.
