Global MBA

The GLP offers two paths of study dependent on the background of the applicant at the time of enrollment. Applicants with over three years of professional experience enter onto the one-year, full-time MBA track. A two-year option for an MBA through the GLP is also available for students who wish to undertake a double degree program or study abroad exchange with one of NUCB’s overseas partner institutions. Many students who follow the two-year track continue to work in Japan while earning their MBA degree. For applicants with less than three years of work experience, NUCB offers a two-year track for an MSc with a different set of mandatory courses than the MBA track.
