* An educational corporation that aims to create a “new place of learning” that goes beyond universities and vocational schools. 21st Century Academia changed the names of 18 schools nationwide on April 1, 2024. *
*
We offer a unique hands-on curriculum through cutting-edge expert courses in 45 fields, including design, visual arts, business, and hospitality. Through this curriculum, students will acquire the “5 professional skills” necessary to demonstrate excellent leadership and play an active role in the real world in the age of the AI ​​revolution, such as “ability to collaborate with other industries” and “ability to strategically innovate.” We cultivate human resources who can be active not only in Japan but also in the world, who we call “cross-cultural globalists.” *

1. Toward a “new place of learning” that goes beyond universities and vocational schools
What we hope for our graduates is to transcend these turbulent times and become successful individuals.
Changes in the market, industry, and society caused by the “Fourth Industrial Revolution” and “Artificial Intelligence Revolution,” which are accelerating from now on, will fundamentally change the abilities required of human resources. As a result, even human resources who have been known to be excellent through “standard deviation education” will lose their jobs to AI. Amid this storm of change, universities, which simply teach knowledge and award bachelor’s degrees, will have their very existence questioned. On the other hand, “places of learning” where people can acquire solid skills in their respective specialized fields will attract new attention in the coming era. However, in order to truly play an active role in the real world, it is necessary not only to acquire “expert skills” in a specialized field, but also to acquire “5 professional skills.” In order to develop such human resources, 21st Century Academia is developing and disseminating various curricula for students to acquire the “Five Professional Skills.”
What we hope for our graduates is not just to be able to “get a job” in the company or industry of their choice. The goal is to become a person who can play an active role in the company or industry in which you work. Through this, we hope that all of our graduates will lead wonderful lives.
With that desire in mind, we have chosen the path of evolution to become a “21st Century Academia.”
Our aim is to create “a new place of learning that goes beyond universities and vocational schools.”

In the coming era, the human resources who will demonstrate excellent leadership and play an active role in workplaces, companies, industries, and society will be those who have acquired the “Five Professional Abilities,” which are advanced abilities that only humans can demonstrate. *
The “Five Professional Skills” cannot be acquired through classroom lectures alone; they can only be learned through practice and experience. *
At 21st Century Academia, we create a “place” for hands-on experience and provide a unique curriculum in which students acquire the “Five Professional Skills” and the “Five Human Relationship Skills” underlying them.

By incorporating reflection techniques into all curriculums, the effectiveness of learning and the speed of growth can be multiplied.
