triple crown

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 development. To enhance the quality of teaching methods, we established the Center for Case Methods 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 developed worldwide, and, more importantly, organize workshops conveying the value and attraction of Case Method education to many educators.
