Finance and Career Guidance

MUFG is engaging in social contribution activities that make use of its core business competency. As part of these activities, we are undertaking initiatives related to economic and financial education for students. We are creating educational programs that provide students with opportunities to learn about the structure of finance and the workings of the economy. We hope that these programs help children become more socially independent and provide them with the strength to realize their own unique lifestyle in the future.

Through its partnership with Junior Achievement, an international organization that promotes economic education, MUFG helps young people enhance their financial literacy and provides career guidance.


Economic and Financial Educational Activities at Group Companies

Economic and Financial Education Provided by MUFG Bank

MUFG Bank (the Bank) is providing economic and financial education to elementary, junior high, and high school students in local communities through a workplace experience, primarily at local branches, retail banking customer service centers, and schools where employees conduct classes. In this program, students learn about the economy, finance, and the role of banks in society. In addition, they have the opportunity to interview employees, asking such questions as "What things do you value when it comes to your job?" and "What is it like to work as a team?" Through these interviews, and the first-hand experience of working, the program provides children with career guidance.

Internship Program (Dynamics of the Stock Market)

Mitsubishi UFJ Morgan Stanley Securities (the Securities Business) is offering an internship program (Dynamics of the Stock Market, or Kabu no Chikara), a unique educational program about the economy and finance. Developed in cooperation with Educa & Quest Co., Ltd., the program consists of five classes where students learn about stocks. At the conclusion of the program, students are asked in groups to express how they leaned about Kabu no Chikara, in the form of a mock the Securities Business newspaper advertisement. The students give a presentation on these advertisements to the class. In FY 2019, approximately 700 students participated from 10 private junior high and high schools in areas around Tokyo and made a total of approximately 180 advertisements. Of the participating students, eleven teams composed of representatives from each school (50 students in total) were formed to present their works at the Securities Business's Head Office. At the presentation, the chairman and the president of the Securities Business gave warm words of encouragement to the students.
This initiative has received high praise as it leverages the Securities Business's Head Office and is promoted on a companywide basis. At the FY 2018 9th Career Education Awards held by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, this initiative won the Encouragement Award in the major corporation section.
