Announcement of the Matriculation Ceremony and Implementation of online courses

Suspension of the Matriculation Ceremony of April 2020
Implementation of Online Courses for the New Term

After careful evaluation of the current situation related to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), Nagoya University of Commerce & Business has regretfully decided to suspend the Matriculation Ceremony of April 2020. It has also been decided that all courses in the new term will be held online.

The Matriculation Ceremony is a momentous event in the lives of our students, their families and friends, and our faculty and administrative staff as well. To celebrate this milestone, the former president of IMD Business School (Switzerland), Dominique Turpin, had been invited to speak as the Guest of Honor. Nevertheless, having welcomed over a thousand attendees from 26 countries for last year’s ceremony, we made this decision to protect the safety and health of all the attendees and prevent further spread of the virus.

In all considerations of how best to provide a robust academic program, a safe learning environment for our students and faculty must be prioritized. After giving due consideration to several options including delaying the start of the semester, we have come to the conclusion that institutions of higher education must continue to impart knowledge to those who seek it, even in uncertain times. Hence, after prolonged consultation with our partner institutions who have also employed this provisional solution, Nagoya University of Commerce & Business will be delivering interactive, live online courses building upon the experience of NUCB Business School, our Graduate School of Management, that has been offering online case discussion courses and certificate programs since 2018.

Please continue to check the Campus Bulletin Board and our official website for more information and updates on the situation.
