The Academy for Leadership is an institute-wide education center and platform. We encourage students with different majors, nationalities, and cultural backgrounds to improve themselves through friendly rivalry in our integrated master's and doctoral degree programs. This allows us to offer cutting-edge educational programs -- one of Tokyo Tech's main strengths -- in graduate schools, departments, and majors. We also offer integrated, interdisciplinary educational programs, including those that combine the humanities and sciences, and help you to develop the leadership and interpersonal skills needed at the forefront of global society.

Seeds of Leadership Nurtured at ToTAL

We believe that leadership is not only about one's position, but it is also a mindset that one should have in order to engage proactively in society. There is no correct definition of leadership because the appropriate style will vary depending on the context. ToTAL's education is an endeavor to nurture the following three "Seeds of Leadership" in our students, which we believe will flourish after graduation and become a continuous source of support in helping them exert leadership in each of their own fields.

  1. Gain awareness of yourself in history and the world, and discover motivation from within yourself
  2. Accept differences between yourself and others, develop mutual respect, and work together to build a better society
  3. Enjoy the creativity in unexpected outcomes by cultivating a spirit of curiosity and sustained endeavor
