  • Chie Ando

    I enrolled at the NUCB Business School, and I keep asking myself, "What would I do if I were a manager?" I ask myself every day. Through discussions with many different people, I learned to accept different standards of judgment and values, and gained life experience at a very fast pace. It's been the most fulfilling experience I have ever had.

    I was pleasantly surprised to find that what I had intuitively felt in practice was systematized and established through the co-creation that took place in the classroom, and I was captivated by the courses at the NUCB Business School.

  • Going to Japan has been a dream of mine for a long time, so when I had the opportunity to go on an exchange semester, there was no question that I wanted to do it in Japan. I chose the NUCB Business School as it is a top ranking school in Japan and offers a teaching method which is very different to the one in my home university.

  • Reiichi Murakami

    As a working doctor with only a monthly salary, I was tormented by a sense of crisis when I realistically thought about taking over my family's medical corporation. In an age when users choose medical institutions, an MBA can be a great weapon.

  • Experiencing Japan and its culture has been my dream for several years and this dream came true for one full year thanks to the NUCB Business School. Not only was I able to learn many skills and new methods with students and professors from all around the world, but also was I able to travel and discover this amazing country.

  • I have never been to Japan before this experience, but its culture has always fascinated me. I chose the NUCB Business School not only for this reason but also and above all for its international reputation and the quality of its programs. Here I have the opportunity to get in touch with many colleagues from all over the world who have contributed to enrich this experience not only from a professional point of view but also human.

  • Coming from a very remote, developing country in the Pacific – Kiribati – the NUCB Business School provides more prospective opportunities to learn business in-depth from a global perspective. The courses are structured more conducive to active participation, open sharing and exchanging ideas and thoughts with rich diverse people (students) whom they have more realistic and exciting experiences and thats what I value the most.

  • The curriculum of the Global Leader Program offers me the opportunity to attend classes with a very different course structure and content than at my home institution HHL. That way, it is a perfect complement to my Master studies in Germany. The case based study method which stimulates class discussions is a very good way to learn about new concepts and strategies of business leaders while it offers the chance to gain insights from the manifold backgrounds and experiences of the students themselves.

  • I chose the NUCB Business School in order to gain a greater insight into Japan's business practices and culture. My family has a coffee business in Hawaii and many of our customers are from Japan. I plan to run the family business after completing my MBA and I wanted to increase my understanding of Japan's language, culture, and business practices so I can better serve our customers. I've even thought that one day, I may expand the family business into Japan!

  • I chose the NUCB Business School because in addition to its reputation, ranking and important dual accreditation worldwide, it is located in one of the most powerful economies in Japan which is Nagoya. Here there is a multicultural experience that we can live in every class, sharing the same classroom with people whose background and culture is totally different than in South America would help me to develop new skills and new ways of doing business around the world.
