To develop a new generation of global business leaders for Japan, Asia, and the world. To create knowledge and disseminate research output originating from Japan on a global scale.
Hitotsubashi ICS offers a world-class curriculum that combines the best practices in business education from around the world with a distinctive perspective on Japan and Japan’s role in the Asian and global economies. We equip our students not only with fundamental business knowledge but also with the broad set of skills and knowledge required of global leaders, including strategic thinking, problem solving, execution, fostering innovation, and bridging differences in global cultures and business systems. We achieve our educational mission through our MBA and DBA programs.
Hitotsubashi ICS is a global thought leader, providing provocative, cutting edge and practical ideas to both academics and business practitioners. We create a vibrant intellectual environment that encourages academics and business practitioners to share ideas and create research that spans the worlds of theory and practice. We are a premier source of knowledge on innovation and globalization in Japanese firms and markets.
Hitotsubashi ICS builds a network of a new generation of leaders of the Asian and global economies. We create this network through our diverse student body and faculty, through our alliances with top Asian and global business schools, and through our partnerships with leading companies in Japan and the region.
Hitotsubashi ICS combines the “Best of Two Worlds” to realize our educational mission. We acknowledge that there is no one best way, and that innovation in business comes from facing paradox, combining opposites, and acknowledging ambiguity. To be more specific, our vision is to be “the bridge” between the East and the West, Large and Small, Global and Local, Old and New, Practice and Theory, Cooperation and Competition, Business and Society. By pursuing these ends simultaneously, we hope to gain the “Best of Two Worlds.”
