The Tohoku University Advanced Graduate School, formerly known as
the the Institute for Promoting Graduate Degree Programs, was founded in 2015.
Its mission is to transcend the academic siloing that is emblematic of graduate schools and
cross international boundaries to implement leading graduate programs and a common course of graduate
studies. By providing a dedicated environment focusing on career development support for graduate-level activities,
Tohoku University is reimagining traditional models of university education/research and
bringing its unique brand of innovation and enterprising spirit to the world.
