2016 marks the beginning of the Tsukuba MBA-IB program's second decade since it was launched in 2005. In the past ten years, we have achieved great progress in reaching our educational objective to develop and nurture international business management professionals who can act autonomously in the global business environment. We have developed a structured and practical curriculum which includes not only traditional MBA courses, but also a wide range of elective courses in responding to the diverse needs of our Japanese and international students. We have signed agreements with eleven leading universities around the world to allow our students further opportunities in discussing with and learning from overseas students under the Tsukuba Short-term Study Program (TSSP). Moreover, MBA-IB students are encouraged to participate in the Chartered Financial Analysis (CFA) competition, ODA fieldwork, overseas corporate visits, and academic conferences. We believe that all these activities will enhance the international adaptability of our students to tackle complex business issues.
Looking toward the future, we will continue to provide our students the best of global MBA education by integrating business sciences and professional practice.
