The talent challenge provides a unique opportunity to get in touch with three of Japan’s finest universities and their students. Read on and find out about the ways to get involved.

About the Event

The event on July 7 is composed of two areas of activities.    

At the presentation area, 

student groups from Keio University, Waseda University and Sophia University are giving presentations in which these student groups respond to real business problem settings - "Challenges" - given to them in June by nine interested AHK Japan member companies. The students are in their 3rd or 4th year and their areas of study are Marketing, Informatics, Sustainable , Japanese Management, German language and culture.

In the exhibition area,

all attending member companies have the chance to network in a private atmosphere. With 100+ soon-to-graduate students attending the event, this talent challenge provides a unique opportunity to connect with students and universities in a more private atmosphere aside from common large-scale job fairs.
