Why take an MBA course with Concordia University?

For holders of an AA degree from the U.S. or two-year diploma equivalents from institutions in Canada, Australia, and other countries, converting the college credits to obtain a BA has been a challenge.

Fortunately, qualified applicants to the Concordia University MBA program in Japan are able to combine the credits from the two-year programs with work experience (that is counted as credit) toward a BA equivalent.

If the application to the MBA program is accepted, you will be granted a BA equivalent by the university. This is then recognized for any official documentation that is required for your work visa in Japan. You will not only have a fundamental basic understanding of business, including an overview of how the modern world works through business but also analytical skills and the ability to learn and apply theory to a variety of real world situations.

As one colleague stated, “those with an MBA are able to talk MBA, and that is immediately noticeable”. Therefore, for those with ambition, it is the degree that can open doors in a variety of different industries and also help those who hope to run their own companies or organizations.

So, if you are successful, you can obtain a BA equivalent and an MBA in 12, 18 or 24 months (depending on the pace you want to study at to complete the MBA). It’s a BA and an MBA all in one!
