How much does the Global BBA Cost?

#International Students #Global BBA #AACSB #Global Campus

You may be unaware of the cost difference when comparing tuition costs in Japan to countries in Europe or North America.

For example, the total cost to study at NUCB Undergraduate School for our Global BBA Program costs 4,831,500 JPY ($43,000 USD, £31,000 GBP). Combined with the reasonable cost of living in Greater Nagoya, the return on investment for an AASCB accredited degree is one not to be missed.

We also offer a generous International Baccalaureate (IB) scholarship. 32/42 on the IBDP points would guarantee a minimum 300,000 JPY annual tuition reduction for the first 2-years and available for all 4-years (roughly a 25% saving).

Students at NUCB can take the opportunity to go on an overseas exchange program or complete a double degree with our world-class partner schools at no extra cost for tuition.

Cost of Tuition at US Universities


Average fees at US universities, 2018-19 
  Public four-year colleges (in-state fees) Public four-year colleges (out-of-state fees) Private non-profit four-year colleges
Tuition and other fees $10,230  $26,290  $35,830 
Room and board $11,140  $11,140  $12,680 
Total (per year) $21,370  $37,430  $48,510

The cost of a private non-profit university in the USA could cost in the region of $60,000 USD per year including living and housing costs. In comparison, studying at NUCB would cost around one-third of that where students can budget around $20,000 USD equivalent.


Cost of Tuition at UK Universities


International undergraduate tuition fees vary considerably, starting at around £10,000 GBP (~US$14,130) and going up to £38,000 (~US$53,700) or more for medical degrees (source: Reddin Survey of University Tuition Fees).

When you combine these fees with the average cost of living in the UK, around £12,200 (~US$16,950) again there is a huge disparity when comparing to Japan.
