Tradition & Innovation

Built in a prime location just fifteen minutes from Nagoya Station, the NUCB Business School's Nagoya Marunouchi Tower Campus was completed in June 2015 to mark the 80th anniversary of the Nagoya University of Commerce and Business. This campus is a dedicated campus for the graduate school of business and holds courses for Master's, Executive MBA, and Executive Education programs as well as a range of research, conference, and entrepreneurial activities. This fourteen-floor tower was designed to last for the next generation of educating global leaders with advanced management practices, built with the concept of merging tradition and innovation. Students and faculty can sense deep academic tradition as they walk through the main gates and first floor reception, while utilizing advanced technology in the classrooms on higher levels.


All campuses are located within a 1-3 minute walk from the terminal station. Students can transfer between the three campuses while still enrolled, if they have to relocate for work or other reasons.

  • Nagoya Marunouchi Tower Campus, 3 minutes walk from Marunouchi Station.

International Program

For working adults, studying abroad is almost an impossible option, considering the need to balance work and study. In response to this situation, the School established the "Working Professionals Overseas Study Support Program" in 2005 in cooperation with the world's leading Harvard Business School (USA), MIT Sloan (USA), IMD Business School (Switzerland), and Kellogg Graduate School of Management (USA). Each program lasts from three to seven days, allowing participants to have a fulfilling learning experience in a short period of time without leaving their jobs. Participants not only receive a scholarship, but also credits towards completion of their degree programs for their study at the training site.

Study abroad at an overseas partner business school with tuition waiver

Those who wish to do so can go on exchange (60 days or more) to over 120 partner business schools around the world. All of the business schools have acquired international accreditation and are ranked among the top MBA schools in the world, and are representative of their region. Students are exempted from paying tuition at these partner business schools and are also eligible for study abroad scholarships if they meet certain criteria. In addition, up to 10 credits earned in the study abroad program will be recognized as University credits.

Double Degree Program

The double degree program is an advanced course of study that allows students to study one year each at our partner business school and at Tohoku University, and to earn a master's degree from both business schools in two years. The tuition fee is only for two years at the university, and the tuition fee at the study abroad destination is waived.
