Working closely with Shizuoka-based global corporations, ABP is designed to educate future global leaders for business and society.
The curriculums emphasize a well-rounded interdisciplinary education with a focus on a combination of technical expertise, business sense, scientific thinking, and interpersonal skills through which students grow as liaisons between Shizuoka and their home countries.

Assistance for the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th years will cover 50% or 100% of tuition and fees based on an annual assessment of individual academic performance during the previous year. There is also the ABP monthly stipend for all the first-year students as well as other governmental and corporate-sponsored funding opportunities.
