The University

Nagoya University of Commerce & Business, abbreviated as NUCB, is a Japanese private university located in Nisshin, Aichi within the Tokai region of Japan. The founder of NUCB, Dr. Yuichi Kurimoto, was the first Japanese person to graduate from the University of Alberta in 1930. Originally established in March 1935 as the Nagoya Tetsudo Gakko, a vocational railway school, it was later reorganized under the newly formed Kurimoto Educational Institute in 1951.

By 1953, the school was chartered as the Nagoya University of Business and Commerce. The NUCB Graduate School began awarding MBA degrees in 2005. It soon expanded into additional campuses in Tokyo and Osaka. In 2006, NUCB was accredited by AACSB International (AACSB) and later by the Association of MBAs (AMBA) in 2009. Nagoya University of Commerce and Business is the first and only institution in Japan to be accredited by both accreditation boards. NUCB continued the pursuit of its internationalization goals with the grand opening of the Nagoya Marunouchi Campus Tower in downtown Nagoya in June 2015.
