Our English-language Global MBA was inaugurated alongside the school’s Japanese MBA in 2009, and following five successful years was strengthened as an independent Global MBA (Global Business and Management Studies) program in 2014 with a bolstered dedicated faculty and expanded course offerings. Sharing the vision of our university’s founder, we strongly believe that companies and businesspeople must strive not only for financial success, but also to make a positive social contribution to the world in which we live.
A striking feature of our Global MBA is the diversity of the people who make our program special. Our students come from a wide variety of backgrounds and over 30 different countries. With our focus areas of Culture and Creativity, Sustainability and Green Business, and Business in Asia, and location in the beautiful and historic city of Kyoto, we offer a unique MBA for those who want to make a difference.
