    From APU's MBA program, I learned about Japanese culture and how business is conducted in Japan. I am now a consultant to Japanese companies conducting business in Africa, and I also work closely with the Embassy of Japan as Secretary-General of the Zimbabwe-Japan Alumni Association. The African continent is growing rapidly, and thanks to the skills I acquired at APU, I am one of the active members of this new development.

    I am extremely proud to be part of the Bandai Namco Group today. It has always been one of my dreams to work at this company. To help me achieve this dream, I chose to get my MBA at APU, as the program mainly focuses on the study of Japanese corporations and business companies. The unique international aspect of APU also greatly helped me, as I developed multicultural communication skills. These skills are put to use in my daily work as I am required to conduct negotiations successfully and lead problem-solving initiatives. The MBA program not only helped me gain confidence, but gave me the ability to develop the necessary business skills for our dynamic global society.

    The MBA program teaching style is interactive with weekly discussions, presentations, and reports. Also, the optional Japanese language classes helped me adapt to a new environment. Overall, this knowledge helped me to quickly transition to my current role in the IT services sector in Tokyo. I am sure APU will continue to provide its students with the tools they need to create a brighter future for years to come.

    From a European point of view, Japan is seen as an exotic study destination ー but I quickly realized that moving to Japan and studying my MBA at APU was one of the best choices in my life. Through this program I was able to learn about Japanese management, international business and various cultures of Asian countries. My time spent in Japan gave me a deep understanding about the importance of quality, spirit of long-lasting relationships, and collaboration with others.

       MBA Program







    When I was looking for an MBA program, I found APU among the top twenty business schools in the field of international management in East Asia. With a background in Japanese language and prior experience living in Japan during my undergraduate study, I opted for APU’s MBA program because of the availability of English instruction and various scholarship opportunities provided to me.

    With countless careers options emerging in the globalized world, APU prepared us —the future managers—to understand and appreciate different cultures. My classmates at APU come from all corners of the globe, which fosters a strong community that shares, discovers and learns together.

    It is a wonderful and unique experience studying in Japan, precisely as a graduate student of APU. The MBA program here provides me with a global understanding of business as well as in-depth study of the Japanese Management style. My study focuses on innovation and operation management and I am confident that the knowledge I acquire in this program will equip me with an alternative set of skills and the creativity necessary to solve world business concerns.

    The campus provides an amazing environment with modern facilities and a diverse student body from over eighty countries. There are also numerous opportunities for interaction that support both academic and social life with fellow students and faculty. During my studies, I have also enjoyed traveling around Japan and this has greatly helped me in becoming a well-rounded person.
