You can experience "work on location" with front line companies and professionals.
What are corporate projects?
In collaboration with the front line companies and professionals, we train students through "corporate projects." This prepares them to become professionals with concept presentation skills, creative abilities, demonstration skills, and communication skills desired by the industry. Students polish their practical skills through assignments that include real work experience, such as developing products and creating company-sponsored musicals and concerts. Students of our schools work on many corporate projects, starting from the 1st year.
