Admission Policy

The mission of NUCB Business School is to educate innovative and ethical leaders who possess a ‘Frontier Spirit’ and to create knowledge that advances business and society. Through continuous achievement of this objective, the School maintains its position as a leading institution of management education and research in Japan and Asia year by year.

Successful program candidates are those who are highly motivated to take on new challenges in service of the School’s mission. Based on this, we accept students in possession of the following qualities:

  • Ambition to engage volatile and uncertain circumstances with an ethical approach proceeding from both a theoretical and practical understanding
  • Empathy in understanding the motivations of others, both in analyzing the actors in various business cases and participating in class discussions and group collaborations
  • Insight needed to comprehend the application of abstract and practical theories, concepts, and methodologies taught and employed in the study of business management

Although candidates must demonstrate a level of general knowledge and skill sufficient for making meaningful contributions to class discussions and group projects, admission to NUCB Business School is not based on insider industry knowledge or qualification in specific fields; rather, it is evaluated based on the development of leadership attributes through personal and professional experience.

Diploma Policy

Degree candidates will be assessed for each course by the respective instructor of that course. In order to complete the program, candidates must complete all mandatory courses, earn the required 40 credits, and synthesize their insights into a capstone project.

The Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree will be conferred on students who embody the Frontier Spirit and demonstrate mastery of the following skills: * Logic in resolving issues of varying nature and size * Ethical and socially responsible decision-making * Clear and effective articulation of ideas and viewpoints

The Master in Management (MIM) degree will be conferred on students who embody the Frontier Spirit and exhibit sophisticated knowledge and practical ability necessary for business strategy formulation and management assistance.
