Where world-class education become reality.
Since its foundation in 1953, Nagoya University of Commerce & Business has been dedicated to helping students create a path in life that is distinctly their own.
The energy driving the mission of NUCB is the ambition and optimism behind a ‘Frontier Spirit.’
In 1930 NUCB founding President Yuichi Kurimoto became the first Asian graduate of the University of Alberta. Upon his return to Japan, he brought with him the spirit of Westward expansion impressed upon him during his student days working for the Canada Pacific Railway, whose motto was ‘Span the World.’
In 1935, Yuichi drew upon the vision of success he learned while working on the railway and upon his accomplishments in obtaining a foreign education – still a rare achievement in Japan at the time – to open a technical-vocational school guided by the mission of helping students discover and develop their own path in life.
The Second World War brought with it the destruction of Yuichi Kurimoto’s efforts. Picking up the pieces, in 1953 post-war Japan, he slowly began the process of rebuilding his dream. However instead of reestablishing a technical school, Yuichi decided to open a school of commerce and business that would help rebuild Japan into a new nation by building the leaders of tomorrow.
Today, founding President Yuichi Kurimoto’s modest start has grown to become the Nagoya University of Commerce and Business with the ambition of becoming the first truly international business school in Japan for both undergraduate and graduate students from around the world.
