My name is Raghul Prasad and I am an Indian student enlisted in NUCB's Global BBA programme.
What really drew me to Japan and NUCB was the growing popularity of Japanese companies in India which is slowly gaining market dominance. This fact stirred my mind and had me looking eastward for my higher education. Additionally, my exposure to Japanese literature also played a role in my decision to study in Japan. The authors of the various pieces I have had the pleasure of reading had an abundance of detailed descriptions which really pulled at my imagination to visualize the beauty of the country.
What I really loved and appreciated in Japan would probably be the peaceful vibe the country creates contrary to the more lively and noisy India. This quiet ambiance really offered me the freedom to be more productive and also kept me fresh and full of energy throughout the day.
My life at NUCB was rather monotonous, I usually take the bus to campus and walked back to the dorm after classes. The classes on their own was joyously erratic, some classes would be upbeat and fast paced, and other classes were more tranquil. After returning to the dorm, I usually spend my time finishing the prep work for the next class and move on to get in touch with my friends and family in the evenings. The weekends were usually spent with friends, grocery shopping or simply wandering through the cityscape of Nagoya. In my case I did not really feel any cultural shocks as I was quiet familiar with it through the time I spend with anime and manga.
Overall, I would recommend anyone to study in Japan as it is completely different from what I am used to. My time in Japan so far has really been an enthralling experience and has proven fruitful as well.
