In April 2011, the Graduate School of Business took aim at one of its original educational goals when it launched its English-based Master of International Business Program (MiB) for nurturing researchers and highly-trained experts who will examine business administration in the global era. The MiB provides a unique opportunity to study business:

We are located in the center of Tokyo in one of Japan’s oldest universities, yet we are one of the newest, and aim to be the most innovative, business programs in the region.

We concentrate on business in Japan and Asia yet, when combined with the resources of our network of partner universities throughout the world, our coverage is global.

Our courses are intensive and highly coordinated but we maintain a supportive atmosphere through our system of personalized mentoring for individual students.

We conduct all our classes in English but also offer our students the opportunity to master the Japanese language by participating in the professional programs offered by the Japanese Language Center at Rikkyo University.
