About Nagoya University of Commerce & Business

Nagoya University of Commerce & Business (NUCB) was founded by Dr. Yuichi Kurimoto. He recognised that higher education in Japan was limited so in 1935 he established a vocational institute called the Nagoya Railroad School, as well as a high school and a junior college. The post-war economic and population boom produced a demand for an institution dedicated to business education. Therefore, in 1953, the university was established.

There are four undergraduate faculties at the university, namely the faculty of commerce, faculty of economics, faculty of management, and faculty of international studies. The university also offers an English Global BBA – it is the first Japanese university to do so.

The academic exchange programme provides students with the opportunity to study abroad at one of the university’s partner institutions. The university has developed over 100 partnerships with higher education institutions in more than 40 countries around the world. In the 2019 academic year, the university welcomed 197 international students from 39 countries.

The university’s motto is "Frontier Spirit" which encourages students to become leaders rather than followers. The university nurtures young people to think creatively and independently in order to become pioneers in the future. Students who serve the community and never give up are said to embody the ‘Frontier Spirit’.

Greater Nagoya is Japan’s third largest metropolis after Tokyo and Osaka. Its location in central Japan makes it an excellent hub for transport around the country. It also boasts a rich history, which has been preserved through historical buildings and ancient Japanese sites. The city of Kyoto is only a short drive away from Nagoya and the World Heritage Site, Shirakawa-go, is located nearby.
