Established in 1875, Doshisha University is widely recognized as one of Japan's top comprehensive universities, with a distinguished history of education
based on founder Joseph Hardy Neesima's philosophy of education guided by conscience.

Doshisha Business School (DBS) opened in 2004, following a long tradition of
successful Kyoto-based global corporations such as Omron, Kyocera, Shimadzu, and Nintendo.

Our English-language Global MBA was inaugurated alongside the school's Japanese MBA in 2009, and following five
successful years was strengthened as an independent Global MBA (Global Business and Management Studies) in 2014 with a bolstered dedicated faculty and expanded
course offerings.

Sharing the vision of our university's
founder, we strongly believe that companies and businesspeople must strive not only for financial success, but also to make a positive social contribution to the world in which we live.

With a focus on sustainability, the Doshisha Global MBA guides students to explore and enquire beyond the established boundaries set by established theories and practices of global business and management to look beyond "business as usual". As they grow into
global-minded leaders, students will not only cover the breadth of standard MBA core subjects, but also develop deeper insights from our three focus areas, and hone their
analytical prowess through the research component.

Our aim is to prepare future business leaders who are willing and able to respond effectively to the emerging needs of the increasingly diverse groups of people participating in the global economy. Doshisha Business
School Global Business and Management Studies offers a unique experience to students and professors willing to work in partnership when exploring ‚ and challenging‚ traditions and trends in global business and management.

Doshisha Business School is located in the beautiful and historic city of Kyoto, within Japan Kansai region
(centered around Kyoto‚ Osaka‚Kobe). Set in picturesque natural surroundings, Kyoto offers an exciting blend of traditional and modern, with 17 UNESCO World Heritage
sites, various artistic and spiritual pursuits, a safe and fun nightlife, and much more. The Kansai region is also the industrial heart of Japan, with a large number of manufacturers and numerous R&D centers and high-tech
science parks.

We encourage students to capitalize on
being in this special place with its historic network of innovative and creative industries.
