Student life

Our alumni will tell you that Hitotsubashi ICS has a warm, cordial atmosphere that prioritizes deep learning, genuine relating, and personal development. Because of our small size, what begin as acquaintances in Foundation Week develop into deep friendships, mentorships, even business alliances. Over the program, student, faculty, and staff share intense periods of both work and fun. Each cohort builds camaraderie, class spirit, and a keen sense of Hitotsubashi ICS identity.

We’re organized
With ten elected positions, the MBA Student Board offers students the opportunity to lead, support, and shape program activities throughout the year, such as Open Campus. Its contribution to the ICS experience has been extremely valuable over the years, as they embody and promote our positive, familial spirit.
We’re holistic
At Hitotsubashi ICS , we listen to our students, and see the whole picture of professional wellness. As a globally-minded institution, we maintain an inclusive learning environment where each individual can engage fully in all activities. Support systems and channels for “listening” help us do so.
  • We’re prepared
    While major earthquakes are rare, in the spirit of preparedness Hitotsubashi ICS instructs all its community in procedures to follow should one occur.
