Triple Crown but very low ranking


Hello.

What are your opinions and perspectives on NUCB Business School in Japan?

Although it has Triple Crown Accreditation, Nagoya University of Commerce and Business itself has very low ranking obviously which it cannot be spotted on QS ranking or Shanghai Ranking.

As the experts' suggestions, I have checked the FT ranking, Economist, Shanghai, and QS but unfortunately could not find any relating with NUCB.

So is it safe to choose such school with very low ranking but having triple accreditation?

Keen to hear your opinions and thoughts on very low ranking universities but have an Triple Crown Accreditation !

Thanks.

Obviously, this depends on your goals. Educationally, it will cover all the core academic content of an accredited MBA. If you *need* an MBA for your career progress, then it might not be the best available school for your goal. The transferrable value of the degree is limited.

Hi, don't worry the QS ranking is very subjective. Trust the shanghai or FT better. Good luck :)

Thank you Mr. Duncan.

So NUCB MBA would be suitable for people having what type/kind of goals? Can you please mention some examples?

Thanks again.

Thank you Mr. Andy776.

I will check the Shanghai ranking once again. FT has a limited ranking for Asian business schools as it focuses on European business schools :)

NUCB would be most useful for Japanese people wanting to get an international educational without leaving Japan. Secondly, it would be good for people with secured employment wanting to return to their own country and play a role working with Japanese business contacts.

I will leave this for any other students in the same search as the OP.  NUCB has its charms, and I myself have recently finished my 2 year program for my MBA.  The kind summary Duncan provided above is accurate enough. I would not suggest the school if you are looking for any of the Networking, Student Support or Career Advancement (outside of simply having an MBA).  The end result was rather disappointing overall, however I will share some of the Highlights NUCB has to offer.  
1) Strong Foreign Student Culture (outside of school).  The University offers very little in the way of clubs, events, or support; however the student body has learned to make their own way, especially in Gaijin communities and student planned activities.
2) Some very stand out Professors.  There are a number of exceptional professors and exceptional classes that would be worth paying for on their own.
3) Great travel location.  You can visit and explore Japan rather easily from Nagoya, so find a few friends, and hop on a train!
