Takashi KANEKO Dean Graduate School of Business and Commerce Keio University Message from the Dean 1

4 1 Program Description 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. Program Objectives To demonstrate the relation between tax administration (including taxation systems)and economic growth from the viewpoint of administration and public finance. To teach the entire taxation process, from enactment of legislation that implements tax policy to tax law enforcement. To give students the opportunity to see theory translated into practice, through studying and evaluating the practices of the National Tax Agency. DEGREE REQUIREMENTS Students of the program will have the unique opportunity of earning a master s degree from a Japanese university with coursework conducted completely in English. As a culmination of their studies, students will submit an individual research thesis, written under the supervision of Keio academic staff, and take a final examination based on their thesis and seminar presentations. For the practicum portion of the program run by the National Tax Agency, students must complete at least eight credits and write a thesis (see later section for details). Upon completion of the above requirements, students will earn a Master of Arts degree in Business and Commerce from Keio University. This degree will be recognized as a completion of the JJ / WBGS program. There are three categories of subjects in the general curriculum: Basic subjects, Specialized subjects, and Seminars. JJ / WBGSP students have to take at least 46 credits, including 8 credits of Seminars or Joint Seminars, by graduation. In addition to the minimum credit requirements, the program requires receiving final approval of the written thesis and passing the Thesis Defence (an oral examination on the thesis submitted)for completion. In addition, JJ / WBGSP students must complete the NTA practicum. Credits obtained (4)in the twoyear practicum are included in the minimum credit requirements mentioned above. 2 Program Description

5 COURSEWORK The curriculum offers a wide range of courses, giving students the opportunity to investigate tax issues from various points of view. To achieve the objective of the program to develop human resources, students will take courses that have a practical and applied orientation, focusing on analysis of examples and case studies. Students will also participate in weekly seminars organized each semester to facilitate their research on various aspects of taxation policy and practice. JJ/WBGSP students may also have the opportunity to participate in intensive courses that are organized by visiting professors to the Graduate School of Business and Commerce. Outside of the regular coursework, on occasion students may also partake in special half-day seminars led by guest speakers who are distinguished individuals in the fields of taxation and economics. The goal of these seminars is to stimulate the exchange of ideas around specific taxation issues, and to help participants identify potential research topics. JJ/WBGSP students also have options outside the coursework of the Graduate School of Business and Commerce. They may take courses offered in English by the International Center on a wide range of subjects related to foreign and Japanese studies. Though credits from these courses do not apply towards the fulfillment of the degree program, these courses offer students the opportunity to broaden their studies beyond taxation policy and management. Students may also study Japanese language in a class specially designed to give them survival knowledge in Japanese. Program Description 3

7 Course Descriptions (extract) *Detailed Course descriptions can be read at: en/ study/ jjwbgsp/ course_description.html Business Economics I The objective of this course is to learn basic microeconomic topics such as demand, supply, markets, and strategy in a manner that emphasizes their managerial relevance within today s business environment. Students are required to make presentations in class on the content of the textbook. Japanese students are also welcome. Business Economics II The objective of this course is to learn applications of organizational architecture. It provides insights into contemporary management issues including the legal forms of organization, outsourcing, leadership, regulation, ethics, and management innovations (Part 4 of the textbook.)next year, the course will cover Part 3. Students are required to make presentations in class on the content of the textbook. Japanese students are also welcome. Japanese Economy The objective of this course is to discuss and understand recent developments in the Japanese economy and its policies. The course will provide opportunities for students, especially for those coming from abroad, to review and understand various economic issues that have arisen in Japan in the last three decades. It will also provide opportunities for Japanese students to look at their own economy from a global perspective. The focus of the discussion will be less on theoretical and empirical aspects and more on understanding the economic, political, social, as well as historical background of the current economic issues that are in the minds of the Japanese people today. Domestic Tax Law 1. An outline of Japanese taxes focusing on individual income tax, corporate income tax, inheritance tax, and consumption tax 2. Selected issues regarding recent major changes in Japanese tax laws; taxation of remuneration, taxation of financial products and capital gains, mergers & acquisitions, partnership taxation, taxation of trust, transfer pricing, etc. 3. Selected issues regarding modern tax administrations, such as the Japanese blue return system, documentation of financial data(including E-filing), taxpayers charter, dispute resolution, etc. International Tax Law As the countries of the world have become increasingly integrated economically, the importance of international taxation issues has mushroomed. Recently, small and medium-sized firms as well as large multinational corporations engage in cross-border transactions that lead to international taxation issues. Accordingly, adequate tax planning is needed to minimize and avoid unnecessary taxes for taxpayers. On the other hand, national governments must care about international taxation, both to present a hospitable environment for foreign investment and to protect their revenue base. The course looks at international tax law including tax convention and domestic tax law. International Economy The objective of this course is to discuss and deepen understanding on policy implications of economic globalization. The course will take up specific issues that are relevant to current global economic conditions and policies especially in the Asian context. Students will have the opportunity to study and deepen their knowledge of the challenges imposed on policy makers in today s globalized world. The emphasis of the course will be placed more on what is happening in the real world and less on theoretical aspects of the issues. Discussions will be made from practical and policy perspectives. Class discussions will enable students to familiarize themselves with these issues and to engage in discussions in a more informed and effective manner. Accounting: International Financial Reporting Standards and its Current Developments International Accounting Standards Board (IASB)was established in 2001, succeeding the role of International Accounting Standards Committee (IASC), and has been developing International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS)since then. Many countries require or allow the use of IFRS. Japan allows the use of IFRS for consolidated financial statements for domestic companies. Under those circumstances, we study the existing IFRSs with the respective rationale of accounting treatments. Advanced Study of Tax Administration The objective of this course is to discuss what tax agencies can do under each country s given conditions in order to implement tax law, to gain trust from honest taxpayers, to thwart abusive tax practices, to build cooperative international relationships, etc. Experiences (successful and unsuccessful)of Japan s National Tax Agency and other countries tax agencies will be shown and compared to seek best practices. Program Description 5

8 Advanced Study of Finance The governance structure of limited liability companies that stipulates the relationship among management, stockholders, creditors, employees, suppliers, and customers is important in determining the performance of the economy. Although OECD countries are generally characterized as market economies, there are considerable differences among these countries in the organizational structure of the economy. One of the major aims of this course is to understand the institutional differences in corporate-governance structures of companies in major industrial countries including the United States, Japan, Germany, France, and the United Kingdom. The differences in the corporate-governance structure have a number of implications for the performance of companies. For example, the cost of capital and the effective use of human resources are affected by this structure. In recent years, the deepening international integration of economic activities has heightened awareness of crosscountry differences in corporate-governance structure putting strong pressure to converge in some aspects of corporate governance systems. The course will also survey these trends. Globalization and Human Resources Management This course aims to introduce students to some of the main principles of organizations and how they function. We will look at basic concepts that affect organizations such as leadership, motivation and reward, group dynamics, and organizational culture. A key theme of the course is to lay out the ways in which human resources are organized and motivated to achieve organizational goals through strategic human resource management(hrm). We will examine these issues against the backdrop of globalization and how organizations are changing to manage the challenges of an increasingly 'borderless' world. Throughout, there will be a heavy emphasis on Japanese organizations and how Japanese firms are developing HRM strategies to compete more effectively against global competition. We will use a mixture of lectures and case studies. The course will be interactive, and emphasis will be put on class participation and discussion. Advanced Study of Public Finance (Spring) Objective: To provide a basic framework of public finance at the microeconomic level, starting from a general theory of taxation on commodity, income and corporate profits, and then extending issues of tax evasion, compliance, and tax reform. Teaching Method: Lecture is given followed by a discussion on the topic. Sometimes, exercises are given with the aim to clarify understanding. Covered Topics: Framework of taxation, consumption taxation, individual income taxation, corporate taxation, capital income taxation, inheritance and gift taxation, tax compliance and evasion, and tax reform (Fall) Objective: To provide a basic framework of public finance at the macroeconomic level, starting from fiscal and monetary policy in standard macroeconomics, public debt in growing economies, cost-benefit analysis, public goods, international debt, and international tax issues. Teaching Method: Lecture is given followed by a discussion on the topic. Covered Topics: Monetary and fiscal policy, the structure of budgetary process, revenue forecasting, public debt, cost-benefit analysis, public goods and bads, local public finance, finance and development, international issues in public finance, and social security Seminar: Public Finance Objective: To write at least one research paper on topics related to public finance as a term paper or part of the Master s thesis. The research paper must be clear and precise, and should not be too long(approximately 20 pages). Teaching Method: Presentation on an assigned paper/chapter of a book is followed by a discussion. Once each participant selects a research topic, the participant will present and discuss the progress of their paper to the professor and the class. Possible Research Topics: The topic must be narrowly focused and well defined. The core idea must be something new and have policy relevance. Seminar: Advanced Study of Taxation and Economic Policies This seminar will discuss various aspects of economic policy making in meeting the challenges of globalization. The goal is to broaden and deepen students knowledge of and understanding on issues particularly related to tax and economic policies. Theoretical aspects as well as practical experiences of specific countries in implementing tax policies will be studied. Issues that are currently being discussed at various international meetings will also be reviewed. The extensive discussions on these issues during the class will enable students to familiarize themselves with these issues and to engage in more informed and effective discussions. The emphasis of the course will be placed more on what is happening in the real world, especially in developing countries, and the discussions will be made from the perspective of policy makers. Seminar: Advanced Study of Tax Administration (NTA Practicum) This seminar will take up practical measures for attaining a fair and efficient tax administration. The discussion will cover a variety of specialized fields of tax administration, by utilizing materials based on Japanese experiences. Academic Writing In this course, participants will work on the interrelated skills of (a)understanding the writings of others and (b) 6 Program Description

9 improving their abilities to express their thoughts. Students will refine their writing talents both through homework assignments and group work (e.g. peer-editing)in class. In order to strengthen student reading skills, participants will analyze issues from past GRE entrance exams. Since many of the students in previous versions of the course later applied to PhD programs in the US or in other English speaking countries, the use of GRE materials will also help prepare class participants for the standardized tests that they may later face. Whether students decide to pursue a PhD or return to the private sector after completing the course, the writing skills developed over the duration of the term will surely improve their ability to communicate in the rapidly changing global community. *Please note that recipients of the JJ /WBGSP scholarship cannot expect to pursue a Ph.D. program because you must return to their home countries at the conclusion of the program. Business Communication This course examines a number of facets of the Japanese culture, and explores the question of how a deeper understanding of these topics improves the ability to communicate both in Japan and in the international community. Lectures, readings, discussions, and assignments will expand your awareness of many of the understandings, attitudes, and communicative skills that are needed for social competency while in Tokyo. We will also consider these concepts from comparative angles, so that we can better understand how similar trends manifest in other countries as well. Introduction to Econometrics Provide standard and up-to-date knowledge of regression analysis by fitting an equation or system of equations suggested by an economic model. The final purpose of this course is to evaluate statistical results (shown by the statistical software)and to make appropriate decisions on modifying statistical models. The student must be proficient in computer skills, but knowledge or experience in statistical software is not required. Basic knowledge of statistics will be helpful for understanding the course, but specific mathematical background is not necessary. Every lecture is comprised of two parts; explanation of the theory, and exercises using the statistical package "R" on the computer. International Accounting III This course provides some introductory knowledge about practical issues regarding financial accounting in an international context. The students must already be accounting literate, but are expected to have no or little experience of studying concrete cases in English. The course will start with a general introduction to financial statements, their main components, and how to measure them. After this introductory part, students will be asked to present their own case studies based on the financial statements of the company of their choice. The scope of the case study should include main accounting policies, the financial situation of the company, and a specific study about intangible assets. Advanced Study of International Relations The objective of this course is to discuss and deepen understanding on policy implications of economic integration, especially in Asia. The course will provide opportunities for students to examine various aspects of policy issues that have arisen from the emergence of many global issues and the increased economic integration. Students will have the opportunity to review the challenges imposed on policymakers from globalization and explore ways to enhance international cooperation to meet these challenges, especially in the Asian context. Students will also discuss the emerging economic integration in Asia in comparison with the developments that took place in Europe. Discussions will be made from practical and policy perspectives rather than from theoretical viewpoints. Classroom discussions will enable students to familiarize themselves with the issues that are being discussed at various international meetings and to engage in more informed and effective discussions on these issues. Advanced Study of International Economic Policy The course will discuss topics related to international economics with emphasis on policy issues such as trade policy, float and fixed exchange rate systems, and economic development. Each student is expected to give two short presentations in class. After this course, the student will be able to analyze international economic issues theoretically and with confidence. Advanced Study of Comparative Management The lectures provide the students with a wide range of issues related to global strategy and global production networking with particular references to the East and South East Asian regions offered by Multinational Enterprises (MNEs). East and South East Asian countries have drawn attention for their rapid economic growth, technological catch-up, the upgrading of economic structures, and technological capabilities since 1980s in East Asia, and 1990s in South East Asian countries. In the 2000s, these phenomena have been significantly changed by the global strategy of MNEs, the economic growth of emerging host countries(including India), and government policies of host Asian countries. We are going to focus on MNEs global strategy from various aspects such as R&D, production, logistics, HR, CSR, and marketing in both home and host countries. By the end of the course students will be able to understand to what extent MNEs global strategies are influential to the economic growth of host countries. Japanese This class is designed for students who are studying Japanese for the first time. The purpose of this class is to provide the students with basic communication skills for everyday life.

11 2 Practicum at the National Tax Agency The National Tax Agency (NTA)is the administrative agency in charge of assessment and collection of internal taxes in Japan, except customs duty. The NTA offers staff training to NTA officials through its training institution, the National Tax College (NTC). This college also engages in academic research on taxation while providing outreach programs for officials of developing countries. The purpose of the NTA Practicum is to provide students with the opportunity to attend lectures given by tax officials who are currently in charge of tax administration and to visit places where tax administration is actually carried out. The Practicum is also intended to help students to gain some practical knowledge in tax administration. Students are required to attend the NTA Practicum every Monday from September 2015 to June Sample Schedule of Practicum at the NTA (Cohort 19) Date AM(10:00-12:30) PM(13:30-16:00) September 29, 2014 Mon Opening Ceremony / Program Orientation / Research Paper Guidance (1) Country Report Presentation (1) October 6, 2014 Mon Country Report Presentation (2) Outline of Japanese Tax System / Procedures for National Taxation October 20, 2014 Mon Japanese Tax Administration Corporation Tax October 27, 2014 Mon Consumption Tax Individual Income Tax November 10, 2014 Mon Individual Income Tax (Withholding Tax) In-Office Work at A Tax Office / Research Paper Guidance (2) November 17, 2014 Mon Taxpayers Management Examination Techniques (1) December 1, 2014 Mon Staff Training A Tour to NTC Wako Campus Tax Museum / Research Paper Guidance(3) December 8, 2014 December 15, 2014 December 22, 2014 January 19, 2015 January 26, 2015 February 2, 2015 Mon Mon Mon Mon Mon Mon [Field Trip] Regional Taxation Bureau Joint Discussion with Japanese Tax Officials Cooperative Organization / Certified Tax Accountant System Tax Consultation / Public Relations Revenue Management / Collection of Delinquent Tax Examination Techniques (2) / Exchange of Informaiton February 9, 2015 Mon Use of ICT in the NTA [Field Trip] Regional Tax Office Joint Discussion with Japanese Tax Officials [Field Trip] Blue Return Taxpayers' Association [Field Trip] Tax Counsel Office / Tax Space UENO [Field Trip] Tax Collections Call Center [Field Trip] Japan Federation of ZEIRISHI (CPTAs) Associations Examination Techniques (3) (Measures for Handling E-Commerce) February 16, 2015 Mon International Taxation (1) Research Paper Guidance (4) February 23, 2015 Mon International Taxation (2) Human Resource Management March 2, 2015 Mon Intensive Lecture on Tax Treaty Intensive Lecture on Tax Treaty March 3, 2015 Tue Intensive Lecture on Tax Treaty Intensive Lecture on Tax Treaty March 4, 2015 Wed Intensive Lecture on Tax Treaty Intensive Lecture on Tax Treaty March 5, 2015 Thu Intensive Lecture on Tax Treaty Intensive Lecture on Tax Treaty March 6, 2015 Fri Intensive Lecture on Tax Treaty Intensive Lecture on Tax Treaty March 9, 2015 Mon Local Tax [Field Trip] Local Government March 16, 2015 Mon Appellate System Research Paper Guidance(5) April 6, 2015 Mon Quasi-Negotiation on Tax Treaty Quasi-Negotiation on Tax Treaty April 13, 2015 Mon Quasi-Negotiation on Tax Treaty Quasi-Negotiation on Tax Treaty April 20, 2015 Mon Research Paper Presentation(1) Research Paper Presentation(2) April 21, 2015 Tue Research Paper Presentation(3) Research Paper Presentation(4) June 15, 2015 Mon Evaluation Meeting / Closing Ceremony Practicum at the National Tax Agency 9

12 Lectures Japanese Tax System: The members of the NTC faculty offer the course on the fundamentals of the Japanese tax system and principal tax laws concerning income tax, corporation tax and consumption tax (Japan s VAT). This course is a prerequisite for the subsequent course on Japanese tax administration. Japanese Tax Administration: Lectures will be given on specific topics such as the administrative work involved with tax examination, taxpayer services, revenue management and collection, and international taxation. Each lecture is given by members of the NTC faculty as well as NTA officials. Individual Research and Discussions with Japanese Tax Officials Individual Research: Utilizing the knowledge acquired in the coursework, and with the assistance and guidance of professors and assistant professors of the NTC, students are required to write a research paper. For the paper, students choose one major issue/problem that his/her tax administration faces and present a recommendation/solution to the issue/problem. (Therefore, students are strongly urged to bring relevant data and research materials with them from their own home countries.) Discussions with Japanese Tax Officials: To complement the coursework, students are encouraged to interact and exchange views on various tax issues with Japanese tax officials who are responsible for tax administration. Quasi-Tax Treaty Negotiation Students will be given an opportunity to conduct a quasi-tax treaty negotiation. In order to provide students with sufficient knowledge for tax treaty negotiation, a one-week tax treaty intensive course will be held in March Field Trips To broaden the practical knowledge of the students, various field trips are also planned to visit regional taxation bureaus, tax offices, and so on. These visits will allow students to have Q & A sessions with tax officials and observe the actual work in progress. 10 Practicum at the National Tax Agency

13 3 Student Voices The Joint Japan World Bank program at Keio University was structured in a way with classes basically centered around or related to our daily taxation work. We enjoyed preparing for seminar presentations which has also led to most of us gaining the confidence to stand before a group of people, and upgrading our presentation skills. Preparing for term papers has assisted us in developing research skills. The caliber of the respectful professors had us in awe from their work experiences, their papers to the presentations and discussions creating lively classroom discussions. The program is a unique one in that classes were also conducted by the officials of the National Tax Agency running simultaneously with the Keio University classes. This made our mutual interest in tax more refreshing and exciting when the opportunities arose to learn the Japanese way of tax administration, to visit the various Japanese specialized tax offices, to share of knowledge and experiences with Japanese and other tax officials from other developing nations (from the other universities). We certainly benefitted in a big way through this exposure and training academically and practically. Lastly, we adored the university s hospitality, the Professors and the International Centers kind assistance, the respect and care that they accorded us. We certainly enjoyed our studies at Keio University and our stay in Japan. Arieta Laisani RAITAMATA Cohort 16, Fiji Islands policy and tax administration. Ari Cahyo TRILAKSANA Cohort 15, Indonesia This program provides a comprehensive learning because class is held not only at Keio but also at the National Tax College (NTC). In both classes, we were taught by professors who have expertise in their fields. We discussed a lot at Keio, while at the same time we joined with the National Tax Agency (NTA)officials to watch and to learn day-to-day operations. This model of learning enriches my mind with theoretical and practical knowledge both on tax Having discussion with colleagues from many different developing countries made me realize that every country is unique in their taxation. Combining with the Japanese experience, I had a great chance to analyze and to take not only the best practice but also the most suitable model to be implemented in my country. For those who are interested in upgrading their creative minds in taxation, I strongly encourage them to apply for this program at Keio University. I think the selection of Keio is one of my paramount decisions towards the progression of my career as well as academic path. It has provided me with the contemporary best practices and exceptional theories of taxation policy and management. The cozy classroom and friendly professors inspire the participants from different developing countries to explore their academic and professional capacities. The university s way of teaching familiarizes students with advanced knowledge of taxation, especially through recent research, scholars presentations on best taxation practices in developing countries, and joint classes with the National Tax Agency. The remarkable expertise of professors on subjects enhance the capacity of participants on the exploration of understanding, thinking and transferring the academic knowledge into best practice. Dibya Raj POKHREL Cohort 14, Nepal In my opinion, any tax professional who intends to have higher academic knowledge regarding taxation policy and management will miss the great opportunity if they forego Keio. Hence, I encourage professionals to participate in this program through JJ/WBGSP. Student Voices 11

14 4 About Keio University Keio University owes its beginnings to FUKUZAWA Yukichi ( ), a great intellectual whose mastery of the philosophies of Western civilization helped lead Japan out of feudalism and isolation into modernity. Fukuzawa commenced teaching the Dutch language in his own residence in Edo (now Tokyo). He later reorganized his school into a cooperative school with a capacity for about one hundred students, which he named Keio Gijuku, Keio being the name of the era of the time. The educational corporation named Keio Gijuku now operates two elementary schools, four junior high schools, five senior high schools, the university, one business school, one junior college, and other research institutions. Currently, the undergraduate division of Keio University is made up of the faculties of Letters, Economics, Law, Business and Commerce, Science and Technology, Policy Management, Environment and Information Studies, Nursing and Medical Care, Pharmacy, and the School of Medicine. Their graduate counterparts are the graduate schools of Letters, Human Relations, Economics, Law, Business and Commerce, Science and Technology, Business Administration, Media and Governance, Health Management, Pharmaceutical Studies, Law School, Media Design, System Design and Management, and Medicine. Students of Keio University have a wealth of resources to pursue their studies. The Mita Campus main library alone contains over two million books and journals, which includes a considerable collection of foreign books and periodicals. Finally, students have the use of many computers found in several different locations on campus. GRADUATE SCHOOL OF BUSINESS AND COMMERCE The curriculum of the Graduate School of Business and Commerce is designed to fulfill different objectives. The curriculum can prepare students for academic research and teaching positions in commerce and marketing, economics, management or accounting. For those students who desire to pursue successful administrative careers, it gives the necessary knowledge and skills for leadership roles in business management, accounting or security market analysis. Pursuant to these objectives, the school offers two majors-one in Commerce and another in Business Administration and Accounting - with the curriculum covering a wide range of areas in both micro and macroeconomics. A master s degree is conferred upon students who have obtained all the required credits in their major field during prescribed two-year period of graduate study and who have satisfactorily completed a master s thesis. Lecture courses are normally conducted by regular faculty members of the graduate school; however, there are several lectures delivered by professors from other graduate schools of Keio University as well as by eminent visiting scholars. Most seminar courses are taught by regular faculty members who are responsible for supervising students in the writing of their theses. 12 About Keio University

15 5 Information for International Students VISA INFORMATION Students in the Master s Degree Program in Taxation Policy and Management must obtain a student visa in order to study in Japan.
