It is known to all that Japan is the third-largest economy in the world and one of the leading development partners of Bangladesh. The economic development that Japan has accomplished within twenty years after the Second World War is considered a miracle in world history. The Japan Study Center was established with a vision to explore Japan’s experiences in development sectors and others. The fundamental motto of the Japan Study Center is to study and do basic research on Japanese society, culture, and history of economic development and learn the reasons behind their development and other important issues related to Japan-Bangladesh. The Masters in Japanese Studies programme was launched in 2006. The University of Dhaka transformed the Japan Study Center (JSC) into the Department of Japanese Studies (DJS) in 2017, which has started admissions for its first batch of undergraduate students from the academic year 2017–18. Currently, a good number of Japanese Studies students are doing their research and obtaining their Masters/PhD degrees in Japan and are being awarded different scholarships worldwide. Japanese Studies graduates are also able to secure jobs in various national, international, and multinational organizations, including Japanese ones.
