Why don't you build a great life by helping society and pursuing your dream job?

We believe it might be difficult for young people growing up in a world of information overload to have a dream for their future. If you are interested in design, technology, music, film, entertainment, sports, health science, confectionery, cafe, animals or nature, and if you want to turn your interests into your job, hold on to that feeling. Wouldn't it be great, if you could move people or make them happy through the job you love? We feel that it is our duty to share the joy of getting a job you love, through the courses we offer at the Jikei Gakuen COM Group schools.
