The NUCB Business School's MBA program is currently ranked No. 1 in Japan by top ranking organizations QS and FT. In addition, all classes are taught using 100% Case Method, using the latest business cases. These business cases paint a vivid picture of the management issues faced by real companies on a daily basis. Students vicariously experience the situation from a manager’s perspective as they read the case and participate in a series of class discussions. Through the wide scale of experiences represented by several hundred cases, students are given first hand experience in decision making from a manager’s standpoint, allowing them to further advance their practical management skills. These varied global business case discussions are facilitated by international practitioner faculty members in a classroom of diverse students with a range of professional & academic backgrounds, giving our degree candidates a robust education from diverse global perspectives.
