Leverage emerging markets for global advantage
IUJ's MBA was listed No.1 MBA in Japan, No.4 worldwide for job offers within 3 months of graduation in The Economist MBA Ranking 2021.
As the first US-style business school in Japan, IUJ's MBA program has bridged management thinking between international and Japanese business communities. It has helped international students access Japanese job markets, and Japanese companies expand their business to global markets. Leading the fast-changing environment, it has developed the latest rigorous ideas and disseminated them widely. As a result, the program has earned many recognitions from outside accreditors like the Economist's "Best Business Schools" and AACSB International, not to mention praise from its stakeholders.
The curriculum of the program puts considerable emphasis on 'Leveraging Emerging Markets for Global Advantage.' It focuses on the knowledge, skills, and mindset required to take the best advantage of the world's fastest-growing economies. Another critical element is technological challenges. Updated program contents expose students to the impact of digital transformation and the 4th industrial revolution. The program also integrates socially responsible business leadership in the curriculum and supports sustainable growth and development.
The first year of the MBA Program is devoted to foundation building. Students tackle the essentials of management with an emphasis on global leadership and emerging markets through case studies. Cases on issues in Asia, Africa, and Latin America are regularly included. In addition, with case based group discussions, students experience cross-border communication and global team leadership. Students begin to customize their courses for their career goals from the Spring term in the first year and take one or multiple 'specialization' paths. They are also encouraged to take part in the Japanese solid language program offered by our dedicated faculty.
Submission of the graduation thesis/research report is one of the requirements for the IUJ MBA degree. Each student produces a unique academic work in a business area of their choice either individually or as a member of a group. Faculty supervision ensures a high quality output. This work begins in spring or fall term depending on the track in which student enrolls.
