Our MBA is the only program in Japan to have earned all three major international accreditations for management schools (AACSB, EQUIS, and AMBA) and has consistently been ranked first in Japan by QS and FT, the world's top MBA rankings. Our school uses the case method in all of its courses, with in-class discussion facilitated by experts in their fields. 80% of our faculty members are researchers with experience as practitioners who, by applying their knowledge gained from both practice and research in the classroom, deliver programs in both Japanese and English that provide students with learning directly related to their careers.

Case Method


The Case Method is a learning method rapidly made famous by Harvard's "Incandescent Classroom." As a pioneer of Case Method education, NUCB Business School contributes toward its research and the development. To increase the quality of domestic business schools' teaching methods, the Center for Case Teaching & Learning has been established as an authority for educators and case developers to share best practices in the classroom. The center's mission is to translate top-quality cases that have been developed worldwide, and, more importantly, to hold workshops conveying the value and attraction of Case Method education to a large number of educators.

    I sought the opportunity to participate in courses taught using the case method, which is not available at other Japanese graduate schools. I am already outside of my comfort zone and having to re-assess the previous mindset that I brought to work. I believe my new, broader approach will bring benefits to any organization I work with in the future.
