  • Had I stayed in my home country, I would have missed the opportunity to engage with instructors and students from all corners of the world. Through exposure to new mindsets and ways of thinking, I was able to accelerate my professional development.

  • 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.

  • My choice of NUCB Business School as my exchange destination was driven mainly by my longstanding fascination for the Japanese culture and way of life. And the Global Leader Program combines that exposure with a great mix of students from across the world.

  • 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!

  • Takeshi Tsuzaki

    Most of my career so far has been in the medical and nursing care industries, but being able to discuss common topics with people from various industries has broadened my perspective. I have also been able to evaluate my company objectively, and its actual performance has been improving.

  • Hiromu Shitayama

    I became to think about the company entirely, like “what can be done to improve the productivity of the organization?” and “what is required to achieve that?”, rather than about the individual way of work. Not only the improvement of my own skill, it is one of the attractive points of NUCB Business School that I could meet the companions who I can keep company with for my entire life.
