I am very happy and grateful to be a global citizen by engaging in a double-degree program teaming up between my home university, HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Leipzig, one of the most prestigious business schools in Germany and the NUCB Business School. Combining the endorsement of AACSB and AMBA and the stunning Japanese culture, the NUCB Business School stands out in the popularity list among our partner schools.
The time at the NUCB Business School is a very rewarding experience. In its exquisite campus, I got the opportunity to work with a very diverse classes comprising students from over 50 different countries and specialized in different backgrounds. Most of the professors here are with both strong academic achievement as well as real-life business practice. Taking Prof. Katagi as an example, his experience in Japanese top corporations and his own entrepreneurial start-up offered us fruitful insights and contributed greatly to the class discussion.
During the semester break, I had a chance to take an internship in a marketing consulting firm in Tokyo with the assist of the NUCB Business School's resources. The experience enabled me to understand more regarding the local working environment and enhanced my perception of business situations furthermore in class as well.

As the most globally oriented business school in Central Japan and one of the top leading business schools in all of Japan, the emphasis on study abroad and international exchange is a key driver of the mission at the NUCB Business School.
