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.

    It was a valuable experience to be in an environment where I could compete seriously with other students with various careers. I have learned there are things I cannot achieve despite my best efforts, but at the same time have discovered my own assets which I value and can improve upon. Now, I continually challenge myself to something new, making the best contribution to my business which, as someone who has obtained the SME management consultant qualification and MBA, I am now able to do.

    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.

    It was an invaluable experience to find an environment where I could engage in serious, friendly competition with my schoolmates from various careers in a strict but fun environment. I learned that there are things that I cannot catch up with even if I try hard, but on the other hand, I was able to find strengths that I need to develop, which has become an asset for me. While constantly challenging myself to do new things, I am pursuing a contribution to the community that only I, as a small business consultant and MBA graduate, can make in my actual business.
