Akita International University

Set in the wooded mountains of northern Honshu, away from the dense crowds of larger Japanese cities, Akita Prefecture resembles the Pacific Northwest in many ways. IE3 Global’s partner, Akita International University (AIU), is ranked as one of the top five public universities in Japan. The curriculum at AIU offers an accessible and exceptional introduction to Japan.
