Resuming international volunteer activities across 15 countries, boasting the nation's No.1 participation rate

Continue to support study abroad and cultivate an international perspective

For over 25 years, NUCB has proudly been active in volunteering programs. Our school is ranked the number one university in Japan for our efforts in sending hundreds of students overseas for volunteering programs.

By securing international study opportunities and providing world-standard management education, the university aims to nurture the next generation of world-class leaders with a "frontier spirit," the spirit of the university's founding motto.
