English language MBA in Japan


Flora_1
Are there any benefits of doing an English language MBA in Japan? I'm an Italian currently living in Tokyo (for work reasons). I am learning Japanese. I am also thinking about doing an MBA while I am here so that I can improve my career potential and make contacts in the region. I have a few options (Waseda University here in Tokyo would be most convenient but I could also work remotely as long as I am in Japan so a school like NUCB Business School would not be out of the question.)

Are there any other options I should think about? Thanks for any advice.

The programs you're looking at are very internationally-oriented, and as such their cohorts will probably not have as many 'locals' as the Japanese-language programs on offer at those schools and elsewhere. This would definitely affect your networking opportunities; if you're ok with networking with students from elsewhere in Asia like China then they could work. Check with the schools but I'm guessing that Japanese students attending these MBAs will probably be in the minority.

Other options depend on your specific goals. If you want to work in MBA-level roles in Japan you'll probably want to look instead at Japanese-language programs but it's not clear how advanced you are in the language.
