Business School (Chuo Graduate School of Strategic Management)

Since we are aware of the significance of strategic business management in this globalized world, there is a pressing need to nurture business people with strategic management skills who succeed in the rapid changes of society and economics. Moreover, legal issues associated with corporate planning are becoming more important when it comes to corporate decision making.

Through the MBA program at Chuo Graduate School of Strategic Management, we offer programs which integrate key business components ; business strategy, marketing, human resource management and corporate legal issues. Taking advantage of a long tradition of legal education at Chuo University, this integrated program is designed to prepare students who are familiarized with both legal and management issues in the corporate world. By bringing together a group of highly-qualified specialists in these areas, Chuo Graduate School of Strategic Management will train you to develop unparalleled “Leadership Thinking”.

Mission of the program

  • Pursue the main aim of this program: “Strategy,” which continues to become increasingly significant in business management.
  • Nurture human resources who are able to think strategically in all aspects of business management
  • Support strategic thinking with a legal mind-set

The Graduate School of Strategic Management (Chuo Business School (CBS)) was founded in 2008 with the aim of developing leading professionals in the field of strategic management.

CBS Mission
We foster strategic leaders who turn knowledge into action through reflection to change the world.

On celebrating our 10th anniversary we returned to Chuo University’s founding spirit, “Fostering the Ability to Apply Knowledge to Practice,” establishing CBS NeXT 10 to enhance development of change leaders.

CBS offers three unique programs to support its framework: “Action & Reflection”; “Field Learning”; and “Project Research.”

In “Action & Reflection” you are encouraged to identify what is necessary for you to become a change leader, what you have to learn and how to apply your learning to practical operations, and to share your views with fellow students. It is designed to foster the ability to connect knowledge to practice based on self-reflection.

“Field Learning” provides you with opportunities to get involved in companies and society, identify problems in both, and develop cogent solutions. This is an experience-based program which embodies the spirit of Practical Learning.

“Project Research” serves as the course keystone, allowing students and instructor to devote a great deal of time and effort in researching and compiling theses or business plans to address issues of interest, and acquire new business skills to change the world.

CBS is committed to students who have the ambition to change themselves or an existing business or organization, by providing one-of-a-kind programs taught by outstanding professors. Join CBS and boost your abilities to their fullest potential.
