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.
Originally established in 1935, NUCB was the first undergraduate institution in Japan and one of only 5% of business schools worldwide to achieve the much sought after AACSB accreditation.
Our main campus, Nisshin Nagakute, is set in the beautiful Nisshin countryside just outside of Nagoya City where we have almost 3,000 students and over 100 faculty. We are the only university in Japan to offer a BBA degree taught 100% in English.
We also have a downtown campus located within walking distance from Nagoya station where we teach solely using the Case Method.
“Frontier Spirit” is the founding spirit and motto of the Kurimoto Educational Institute. The Founder of our family of schools, Dr. Yuichi Kurimoto, the first international graduate of the University of Alberta, Canada. While he was a student there in the early Showa era, he was very impressed by the energy by which the Canadians were opening up to the western frontier.
“Frontier Spirit refers to the school's mission to create leaders rather than followers, to nurture young persons who think creatively and independently and to impart to students the skills and qualities that they will need to become pioneers in the future. Specifically ‘Frontier Spirit’ refers to the spirit of that person who never gives up and who, by acting in an original manner, seeks to benefit humanity, society, and the nation.
NUCB was the first accredited AACSB undergraduate institution in Japan. NUCB achieved accreditation of its undergraduate and graduate programs in 2006 and successfully maintained it to date.
In order to earn and sustain business accreditation, NUCB must align with a set of 15 business accreditation standards that focus on mission and strategic management; support for students, faculty, and staff; learning and teaching; and academic and professional engagement of students and faculty.
In 2018, NUCB were ranked the best private university offering business programs in Central Japan by Times Higher Education.
