Our school (YUMOT) gave its first cry in 2005, as one of the earliest professional MOT schools in Japan. Since then, YUMOT has committed itself to offer high quality MOT education. Also, YUMOT has been playing a leading role to improve and disseminate MOT education in strong cooperation with business community and other leading MOT schools in Japan. Beyond that, we decided to move our endeavor forward in response to the rapid progress of globalization of business. International program was launched in 2013 for that purpose.
