Hitotsubashi University Graduate School of International Corporate Strategy (Hitotsubashi ICS)
Campus Full time 1 - 2 years September 2017 Japan Tokyo

The mission of the MBA Program in Hitotsubashi ICS builds on our tradition. Our goal is to contribute to society by developing business leaders capable of initiating, implementing, and managing innovation on a global scale. [+]

The mission of Hitotsubashi ICS, which was established in 2000, is to achieve the ‘Best of Two Worlds’, acting as a bridge between diametrically opposing concepts such as “East and West”, “Large and Small”, “Global and Local”, “Old and New”, “Practice and Theory”, “Cooperation and Competition”, and “Business and Society”, through education and research. One year Program or Two year Program Applicants to the MBA program may select from two options (the One-Year Program or the Two-Year Program), both of which offer the same MBA degree. Applicants must choose between the two options at the time of application. The One-Year Program is designed primarily for students who are not seeking a career-change post-MBA and wish to be granted a degree in as short a time as possible. In contrast, the Two-Year Program is designed for those who are seeking a career-change post-MBA or wish to be exposed to broader or more in-depth MBA-level learning opportunities and experiences. Once applicants are accepted into either one of the two programs, they cannot switch to the other program. The selection criteria for admission is identical for both options because all students must take required courses together in the first year, follow the same academic calendar, and must meet the same earned credit requirements for graduation. Students in both the One-year Program and Two-year Program receive exactly the same high quality education and the same level of commitment and support from our faculty and staff. Academic Calendar The MBA Program in International Business Strategy consists of two programs: the One-year Program and the Two-year Program. Students in both programs follow the same academic calendar in their first year. The academic year is divided into four terms. There is a break of at least one week between each term. There are no required courses during these breaks, but there may be elective courses and other elective academic activities. Two-year MBA Program Two-year program students enroll at Hitotsubashi ICS in mid- or late-September and graduate in August two years later. In the first year, two-year students must take all required courses and can select additional elective classes together with one-year students. However, two-year students can custom design and build their second year curriculum in accordance with their own interests and goals. In their second year, two-year students can participate in the following activities: attend an exchange or double-degree program; participate in non-remunerative company internships either in Japan or overseas; conduct individual research projects, which may include writing a business case or a consulting report, or developing a business plan for a new venture; take additional elective courses; and work with the Career Services on post-MBA career opportunities. The Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology allows two-year students who excel in their studies and course work during the first year to graduate early if they elect to do so. Early graduation would enable qualified students to receive their MBA in a year and a half, i.e., at the end of March of the second year. One-year MBA Program One-year program students enroll at Hitotsubashi ICS in mid- to late-September and graduate in August the following year. This option is best suited for company-sponsored and YLP (Young Leaders' Program) scholarship applicants because it is assumed that they will return to their original company or organization after graduation. For non-sponsored applicants who are looking for a career change, this option is not recommended because it is very difficult to balance the required academic work-load with their job search. Although one-year students can participate in all on-campus academic courses and programs as well as intensive academic programs offered both on and off-campus, they are not eligible to attend term-long exchange programs or to participate in company internship programs. Students in both the one-year and two-year programs receive exactly the same high quality education and the same level of commitment and support from our faculty and university staff. Admissions The Hitotsubashi ICS Admissions section offers an overview of our admissions process, including information on tuition, financial aid, international admissions requirements, and our application package. To make sure your application is accepted and reviewed in a timely manner, and that you submit a complete and accurate application package, please take the time to review the contents of this site and also read carefully through the application package materials before submission. There are two rounds of applications for the Entering Class of 2016. The Admissions Committee strongly encourages applicants to apply in the first round, as space in the class may be limited in the second. In addition, applying in the first round will have an advantage on matters such as scholarships, particularly for international students. The respective application deadlines and the interview dates are: ROUND 1 exact dates to be determined. Application term: early December 2016 - early January 2017 Interview date: early February 2017 Admission decision date: late February 2017 ROUND 2 exact dates to be determined. Application term: early February 2017 – early March 2017 Interview date: early April 2017 Admission decision date: late April 2017 It is important to note the following: You may apply for only either the 1-year or 2-year program. Once accepted to one program, you cannot switch to the other program. All application documents, except for TOEFL/IELTS and GMAT official scores, must be submitted via the ICS Online Application System. Applicants are encouraged to submit their application as early as possible in each round. Scholarship decisions for international candidates are made only after a candidate has been admitted. Since scholarships are limited in number, first-round candidates tend to have an advantage in this regard. Careers The Career Services Office provides students who are not sponsored by their employers with one-on-one counseling to help them recognize any career development needs as early as their first month at Hitotsubashi ICS. Taking into consideration the demand for Japanese language ability for most positions in Japan, students who have low or no Japanese language background who desire to work in Japan may want to consider acquiring some knowledge of the language even before coming to Hitotsubashi ICS. Having Japanese language skills will open up many more career opportunities within the country and greatly increase your chances for employment by the domestic company of choice. [-]
