The APU MBA Program – gaining International Attention


Oct 14, 2009

APU has been working hard to enhance the MBA program to equip graduates with the knowledge and skills they need to play leading roles in the markets and economies of the Asia Pacific region and around the globe, and is receiving increasing attention throughout the world.
Based on their independent research, EDUNIVERSAL, a French based university ranking web-site, has selected what it sees as the top 1000 business schools in the world and awarded the APU Graduate School of Management the rank of "EXCELLENT Business School" with "Three Palmes" in consideration of its international influence. This award places APU 11th in Japan. EDUNIVERSAL compiled this ranking based on a range of standards such as accreditation, affiliation with international associations and participation in regional, national and international rankings.

Furthermore, TOPMBA.com, the web-based MBA ranking system of Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), has included the APU Graduate School of Management in its "QS Global 200 Business Schools 2009: The Employers' Choice" list. Based on research carried out by QS, including questionnaire responses from over 600 companies in 42 countries, this list shows the top 200 business schools currently preferred by international employers.

As one of the very few graduate schools to offer an MBA with a focus on the Asia Pacific Region, the Graduate School of Management strives to provide students with both a sound foundation knowledge of business management and focused elective courses in any of the four specialist areas of Finance, International Business and Marketing, Innovation and Technology Management, and Comparative Institution Design for Transition Economy and Business Management.

The dedicated MBA faculty members and selected specialists from a range of business spheres work together to integrate management practice and theory from around the world to provide an MBA program with a truly global perspective.
