The Executive MBA (EMBA), launched first in Japan in 2003, aims to develop core corporate talent for society through the business school. Over 1,000 next generation leaders have taken part in our weekend intensive lectures, motivated by making the most effective use of their Saturdays and Sundays. In order to become a successful leader, a holistic decision-making process at the management level is required. Understanding the reason that excellent business people do not necessarily become excellent leaders means recognizing that the required skills are quite different. Leadership is not simple "management knowledge" and "management skills" - rather it is an "attitude" to change the organization and company. Through our EMBA program, under the guidance of experienced practitioner instructors utilizing case studies from 200 companies, students experience the professional judgements and business decisions of leaders, which enhances the student’s sensitivity of the required attitude to become a leader.
I feel that the elements of behavioral economics have elements that can be adopted little-by-little in business.
The internationally accredited EMBA can be acquired in as short as 1.5 years by completing a single course over the duration of two weekends in four days on Saturday and Sunday. The value proposition of this methodology is that the practical discussions in the class are ready to be applied immediately on Monday mornings in the workplace. All teaching material are based on the latest business cases from the manager’s point of view. The result is highly relevant discussions that are applicable to today’s rapidly changing business environment for executive managers.
The curriculum of the EMBA is designed to instill the ability to view the overall management landscape – one of the core necessary skills for managers. From the basics to application of models, students learn systematically how to produce high-quality output, such as the case writing, for completion of the EMBA.
Each course within the Executive MBA can be completed in 4 days. Instead of following a distributed learning structure where individual courses are spread over a period of months, our students learn in a highly focused manner. This reduces time spent on review, and allows students to start applying their new knowledge quickly in their workplace.
In line with the Executive MBA's focus on practical knowledge, great use is made of the NUCB Business School's expansive stock of real world business case studies. All courses employ the “Case Method” - using the most recent business cases available as learning materials. Case writing is a requirement of the course, so you will gain ample first-hand experience.
Knowledge is only useful when it is used effectively. The Executive MBA provides you with a tried and tested framework for the practical application of your new knowledge to your working life. Through repeated practice of our 3 Step learning process, you’ll learn the thought processes necessary for problem solving as well as honing your decision-making abilities.
My classmates and professors are full of enthusiasm and this pushes my motivation beyond imagination. This has been the most interesting experience in my life!
The three-step case methodology used at NUCB Business School works in tandem with the progressive curriculum of the EMBA. As a student of the EMBA program, you will improve your overall management skills with a bird's eye perspective of various business situations while simultaneously focusing in on eight essential fields of commerce and company organization. The unique curriculum yields innovative solutions that assist you in becoming a highly innovative manager. Through the rigorous study of numerous cutting-edge business cases, you will achieve the diverse skills and thought processes necessary to manage changing business environments effectively.
By using the case method, I realize that I can acquire practical knowledge and a strong sense of know-how by putting myself in the shoes of top management.

Our School has established student exchange partnerships with more than 130 leading business schools, from 54 countries across 5 continents. In our exchange program, students are able to study abroad while tuition fees at partner schools are waived. There are also scholarship programs for study abroad students who demonstrate the highest levels of excellence.
After completing one year of study at NUCB Business School and one year of study abroad, students in our Double Degree Program obtain two Masters degrees - one at our school and one at a partner school. This unique program provides an advanced experience of international education, and a unique qualification with which to further your career in the global business community.
Realistically, it is quite impossible for full-time employees to complete a traditional study abroad program. So, in 2005 we established the “Support for Off-campus Program” system in cooperation with Harvard Business School, MIT Sloan and IMD Business School. Program duration varies from 3 to 7 days which allows students to take enriching learning experiences without sacrificing work commitments. Participants enjoy established scholarship benefits and recognition of the training as course units at our school.
