The Joint Japan/World Bank Graduate Scholarship Program - Master's Degree Program in Taxation Policy and Management

Since 1996, the Graduate School of Business and Commerce of Keio University has been training promising tax personnel in the field of tax policy and administration with its Master’s Degree Program in Taxation Policy and Management. This program brings together the cooperation of Keio University, the National Tax Agency of Japan(NTA), and the World Bank in an alliance between public and private institutions.

Keio University, a leading private university in Japan, established the program as one of the partnership programs of the Joint Japan/World Bank Graduate Scholarship Program (JJ/WBGSP). Funded by the Government of Japan and administered by the World Bank, the JJ/WBGS program is a personnel training project which awards scholarships to help developing countries strengthen their human resources.

The Graduate School of Business and Commerce of Keio University and the National Tax Agency have responded to this mission of the JJ /WBGSP program by training five scholars each year in the area of tax policy and management. Participants are expected to return to their home countries to become leaders in improving taxation practices.
