Our company was founded in April 1998, and since then our vision has been “Lifetime Empowerment” (providing a learning environment that continues to update oneself throughout one’s life). Leveraging our core strengths in education technology, we have been developing online education services primarily aimed at working adults. Our achievements are wide-ranging, including establishing Japan’s first 100% online university and graduate school.
