History & Founder

Nagoya University of Commerce & Business (名古屋商科大学, Nagoya shōka daigaku), abbreviated as NUCB, is a Japanese private university located in Nisshin, Aichi within the Tokai region of Japan. The founder of NUCB, Dr. Yuichi Kurimoto, was the first Japanese person to graduate from the University of Alberta in 1930. After graduating in 1930, he returned to Japan with the vision of making education accessible to the disenfranchised youth of the time. Following the postwar economic and population boom in the 1950s, he established the Nagoya University of Commerce and Business. In 2006, the school was the first undergraduate school in Japan to be accredited by AACSB International (AACSB).

AACSB Accreditation

Less than 5% of more than 16,000 schools worldwide have achieved AACSB Accreditation. AACSB-accredited schools have the highest-quality faculty and deliver relevant challenging curriculum.
