English MBA & MIM

The NUCB Business School offers two paths of study depending on the background of the applicant at the time of enrollment. Applicants with over three years of professional experience enter onto the 1-year or 2-year full-time English MBA track. A two-year option for a Master of Science in Management (MIM) is also available for students who wish to undertake a double degree program or study abroad exchange with one of the NUCB Business School's overseas partner institutions. Many students who follow the two-year track continue to work in Japan while earning their Master's degree as a part-time MBA student with courses held on the weekend only. For applicants with less than three years of work experience, the school offers a two-year Master's with a different set of mandatory courses than the one-year Master's track held on weekdays.
