The Best Value University

Tokyo City University was born when the Musashi Institute of Technology (founded 1929) and the Toyoko Gakuen Women’s College
(founded 1938) merged in 2009. In 2019, we celebrated our ninetieth

Towards our centennial in 2029 and following our mid-long term plan “Action Plan 2030,” we are reinventing ourselves with city as our keyword as a leading university in the international city of Tokyo that responds to a rapidly changing society.

An important part of this reimagining is the establishment of the Institute for Future City Studies, an interdisciplinary research brand cutting across all TCU’s seven faculties helping cities become more sustainable and better places to live.

Our society is globalizing rapidly. The problems we face are growing more complicated and harder to solve. We will need visionaries and dreamers, who are resourceful and internationally-minded, who understand their own culture and history and that of others, and who
can work with people all around the world to forge new paths. Our goal
is to make you an expert who can act on a global stage. We evaluate our success on how much you gain from your first class to graduation, and from this perspective we want to be the Best Value University—the one where you get much more than just an education.

Tokyo City University: helping make the world a better place through researching the cities of the future and educating the future doers and visionaries.
