The University of Tsukuba has been offering a Master of Business Administration on its Tokyo campus for 30 years; a popular, academically rigorous program that involves the completion of a research thesis.Pure academic rigor, however, is not necessarily what every professional wants from an MBA program.Inspired by the success of the executive MBA model ? extensive work experience, fast-paced programs and a real-world focus ? the University of Tsukuba took the opportunity to develop a genuinely global MBA experience 

The central location of the University of Tsukuba’s business school is a major attraction.

A distinctive feature of the MBA-IB is the Tsukuba Short-term Study Program (TSSP), during which students can undertake short exchanges with one of 11 partner universities in Australia, China, France, Germany, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Thailand and the United States. “For most full-time workers, it is hard to experience an overseas university as an exchange student,” explains Nagai. These short-term visits of approximately one week allow busy professionals the chance to experience the business culture of other countries and enrich their global outlook. 
The academic rigor and thorough practical grounding combined with an innovative global outlook make Tsukuba’s MBA-IB program a demanding, yet rewarding course that will produce thought leaders ideally suited for today’s global business landscape.
