Program Description:

The Rosen College of Hospitality Management (RCHM) exchange program with Rikkyo University, Tokyo Japan. Rikkyo University has been known for its tradition of both commerce study and liberal arts education for over 100 years.
The Rikkyo University, founded in 1874 by an American Episcopal-Church missionary priest, is one of oldest and nationally recognized research universities in Japan. It has 10 colleges (Liberal Arts, Economics, Science, Sociology, Law, Tourism, Community & Human Services, Psychology, Intercultural Communication and Business) offering both undergraduate and graduate programs (about 20,000 undergraduate and 900 graduate students). It has two campuses: The Ikebukuro campus, located in the center of Tokyo, is the home to College of Business and six other colleges, while the Niiza campus, about 30 minutes westward by train in the neighboring Saitama prefecture, is home to the colleges of Tourism, Community & Human Services, and Psychology.
Tokyo enjoys a long history of prosperity as Japan’s capital since 1603, when Tokugawa Ieyasu established his shogunate and named the city Edo.Located geographically at roughly the center of the Japanese archipelago and in the southern part of the Kanto region, Tokyo shares borders with Chiba Prefecture to the east, separated by the Edogawa River; Yamanashi to the west, by a mountain range; Kanagawa to the south, by the Tamagawa River; and Saitama to the north
