School information/educational philosophyPHILOSOPHY

Established at the request of the tourism and service industry!
A historic school that continues to live up to deep trust.

“I would like to see a school that develops human resources who can play an active role immediately.”
It was over 50 years ago that Travel Journal Co., Ltd., which publishes a magazine specializing in tourism business, received such a request. We, Osaka Foreign Language, Hotel and Airline College, are a vocational school that was created in response to requests from the tourism and service industry. Our school will continue to produce excellent human resources as a top runner in the industry.

Message from the Principal

This industry that you are interested in is a gathering of people who aim to ``make customers happy and make themselves happy.'' From ``correct Japanese,'' ``fresh greetings,'' and ``dignified demeanor,'' to ``understand the customer's thoughts and make their requests come true'' and ``use language skills to expand their worldview and create new services that can be used around the world.'' "Providing safety to our customers in any situation"... They are described as "creators of excitement and safety" and "magicians who make customers smile," and it is also a world where their skills are competed as professionals.
Make the most of your role and live with pride. Our school cultivates this technique and determination. Faculty and staff serve as professional models for students, learning together with students and helping each individual develop their potential. We are proud to see so many of our graduates shine and contribute to the industry.
