The MBA program at APU is conducted entirely in English in a culturally diverse learning environment. It offers a strong foundation in established management techniques, interactive classes with faculty and fellow students from around the world as well as opportunities for independent research and internships in the university’s extended network with Japanese companies and organizations. 

In addition to providing a standard curriculum for international business management, this program also offers students a chance to explore the Japanese style of management, which was built on the three pillars of long-lasting management, quality control and customer service excellence. Japanese management has emerged as an alternative management practice, serving as the new model for corporate management in the Asia Pacific region. The program not only opens up business opportunities in Japan—the world’s third largest economy—but also various career options all over the world.

Course Structure

Students need to complete forty-four academic credits of which twenty-two credits will be from required subjects, eight or more from specialization subjects, and six credits from management seminars. In addition to fulfilling the credit requirements, students must also conduct a research project and complete an extended piece of writing in the form of a master’s thesis, independent final report or internship-based case study. The research project must be approved by the university.

Students will also have the option to take basic Japanese language courses, credits from which will count towards the program completion requirements. Japanese language knowledge has aided many of our GSM graduates in seeking employment at Japanese companies. No extra fees will be charged for earning more than forty-four credits.
