Career Support Pathway
Business fundamentals through Case Method
Upon enrollment at the NUCB Undergraduate School, students will be learning business fundamentals through our Participant Centered Learning and with the Case Method which provide them core theories and real life examples. This learning method brings students to think critically about key issues as they take on the role of decision-makers and engage in discussions, improving soft skills such as leadership, communication, collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, etc.
From the first summer or winter break, students have the opportunity to engage in internships across the world. These work experiences are crucial as it will introduce them to the different industries, workplace environment, particular companies and specific roles within them. Meanwhile, students will be able to adopt a professional attitude early on, develop human relation skills and hone their job-search abilities over the years.
Career guidance by experts
Experts will be invited to speak and exchange with students; with topics ranging from Japan's corporate culture and business manners, trends of the current job market, industry introduction and explanation, tips and techniques for a better job application process, etc.
Every year, students will be encouraged to analyze themselves, their ideas and goals to better understand their motivations and to gain deeper insights on where they wish to be upon graduation. Knowing oneself will lead to a clear vision.
Year 1: reflection on areas and geographical locations
Year 2: research on industries
Year 3: research on organizations and exploration of possibilities
Different types of workshops will be held every year, ranging from writing resumes and cover letters, preparation for job fairs, creation of a professional and online presence, mock interviews, etc.
Over the decades, the NUCB Undergraduate School has built up its alumni network and the alumni are always willing to mentor, support and connect the current students.
Company info sessions
Regional companies will conduct information sessions on campus in Japanese while we will invite our students to attend information sessions carried out during job fairs (some of which are targeted at international students only).
Job hunting and placement
