The Graduate School of International Corporate Strategy (ICS) offers students the opportunity to earn an MBA degree in International Business Strategy at Hitotsubashi University. In order to meet the requirements of an MBA degree, students must take a minimum of 66 credits during the First Year. Applicants for the MBA Program in International Business Strategy will be able to select from two options, both of which offer the MBA degree.
The selection criteria for admission is identical for both options since all students are integrated completely in the first year, follow the same academic calendar, and must meet the same academic requirements. All students experience a very intensive curriculum in the first year (several students in the past have noted humorously that the name of our graduate school, ICS, means, “I Can’t Sleep!”). The sharing of this common experience establishes a strong cohort network among all 1-year and 2-year students that they can take with them far beyond their graduation.
