MBA for Scientists

Balancing Your Experience to a T with MBA Insights

Experts in HR point to two categories of professionals developed during the postwar growth of the working population: dash-shaped generalists and I-shaped specialists. Recently, T-shaped "generalizing specialists," as popularized by IDEO CEO Tim Brown, have become the solution to workflow bottlenecks that arise from adjusting personnel to meet shifting and various demands.

Through study of business administration, vertical experience is expanded by the insights of peers from a variety of fields and backgrounds, while specializations are complemented by the insights of professors with extensive backgrounds in specific fields. As the demands of the marketplace adapt to changing times, those who aspire to lead are forced to anticipate the requirements of multiple possible futures. Those leaders will be equipped for their evolving roles as technical specialists with MBA insights.

  • 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.

  • In Peru, Japanese culture has had a great impact since the beginning of the last century. Studying an MBA at the NUCB Business School allows me not only to expand my global strategic field of vision, in one of the most prestigious business schools in Asia, but allows me to return to my country with knowledge and valuable tools that will serve me in the future, both in business and in life.
