Point 1

A "Master's degree in Management of Technology (Professional Degree)"can be earned in only one year

To realize this feature, our program comprises an intensive course of study for one year with classes held weekday nights (18:30-21:40, 2 periods) and Saturdays (9:00-19:40, 6 periods). A quarter system consisting of the spring term (April to July, 15 weeks), summer term (August to September, 6 weeks and intensive lectures), autumn term (October to January, 15 weeks), and winter term (February to March, 6 weeks and intensive lectures) is adopted so that students can earn 34 required credits in one year. Therefore, if a student attends classes 3 days per week on average, for example, 2 weekdays and Saturday, he/she can earn the required credits in one year.

Point 2

Possibility of gaining useful advanced special knowledge in three business courses

  1. 1.Technology Management Course for Small Business
  2. 2.Project Management Course
  3. 3.Techno-Entrepreneurial Strategy Course


Highly technical knowledge specific to the management of technology of middle-ranking and small and medium enterprises can be acquired. Any one of these courses provides the best business training for those who seek to upgrade their career and is appropriate for those who aim to become future managers and division leaders.

Point 3

Highly skilled business professors nurture advanced professional business people

We nurture working adults with sufficient experience in the business world and with high problem awareness to transform them into more highly professional human resources. Because practical knowledge and skills are indispensable in realizing this aim, the following are considered.


  1. 1.Highly skilled business professors, such as active experts in MOT fields.
  2. 2.Abundant examples based on the professors' own experiences, or case studies.
  3. 3.Establishment of rapport and complementary relationships between professors and students.
  4. 4.Inviting excellent guest speakers from the business community.
  5. 5.Exchanges of opinions and discussion with people playing an active part in the business world.
  6. 6.Business consultation and solution style in-depth guidance by professors for individual students who write business reports that are equivalent to master’s theses.
Point 4

We open our doors to any person with good business experience, regardless of his/her educational background

Although our main target is university graduates with over 5 years of business experience, noncollege graduates with over 7 years (in the case of technical junior college and junior college graduate) or 9 years (in the case of high school graduates) of business experience can apply by taking the qualifying examination (interview form) prior to the formal entrance examination.

Point 5

Exchanges with various people regardless of age, career, business category, and occupation

Because people of various ages, academic backgrounds/careers, and business categories/occupations will be enrolled in the NIT MOT graduate school, exchanges between same-year students means exchanges between people of different generations and different business categories and occupations. Students can exchange ideas and opinions that are not encountered in normal graduate schools or lectures, which is a valuable experience.

Point 6

Best campus accessibility

Our campus is located in a modern, comfortable building of our academic institute, which was founded in 2005 at a corner of the Old-Bookshop Street in Kanda-Jimbocho, Tokyo, and is just 2 minutes on foot from the Tokyo Metro Jimbocho station. It is also just 10 minutes from central Tokyo station by taxi. It is the optimal place for attending classes. It is also possible to commute by bullet train from regions other than the Kanto Region.
