Frequently asked questions

  • I have difficulty getting away from work on weekdays.
 Almost all professional graduate students face the same situation. That’s why the average weekday class attendance rate is once or twice. In fact, it is possible to acquire all required credits in two years by attending classes on Saturdays only. Additionally, the courses are managed with full understanding that students sometimes cannot attend classes due to business travel or other obligations. Students who cannot attend can supplement their studies by viewing recorded lecture files.         
  • What are the demographics of students?
 There is a broad range of age groups, from the twenties up to the sixties.TOYO PPP School brings together graduate students from a variety of fields and organizations, including local and national government bodies, local councils,construction, real estate, consulting, finance, manufacturing, information, advertising agencies, and NPOs. Networks linking graduate students, graduates, and faculty are formed through lectures, seminars, projects, and get-togethers.
  • Is it possible to commute to classes from outside the Tokyo metropolitan area?
 Because classes can be attended on Saturdays only, it is possible to commute to school from distant areas. In addition, the internet commute program makes it possible to participate in lectures in real time from your home or office. Using the internet commute program requires no additional fees. If you plan to use the program, please contact the Otemachi Satellite Office beforehand, as it may not be available with some computers or internet connections.
  • Can students participate in projects in Japan or abroad while they are graduate students?
 Some classes and seminars conduct research and implement projects in partnership with local governments and others to propose solutions to problems. It is recommended that you take such a class or seminar if you wish to participate in a project. Projects like the OGAL Project of Shiwa Town, Iwate Prefecture, and power generation project in Butuan City, the Philippines, were realized from the results of initiatives executed in partnership with local
governments and enterprises.
  • What are the expected qualifications of prospective students?
 PPP requires both a theoretical foundation and abundant practical experience. Given this, the course welcomes people with the resolve and ability to learn a precise theory and put it into practice. Of course, no one starts off with sufficient knowledge and experience. That’s why instructors and graduates are there to provide comprehensive support.
  • I’d like to know more about the entrance exam.

 Please inquire about eligibility separately if you live outside of Japan.


  • What kinds of career path do graduates typically take?
 Most graduates become involved in PPP-related operations or projects within their organization. Recently, however, some graduates have changed careers in response to growing PPP demand; for example, one graduate
became a manager of the PPP agent of Shiwa Town, Iwate Prefecture.
