QBS was established on April, 2003 as the 3rd business school of national universities, following Hitotsubashi University and Kobe University; and it was established as the first full-fledged business school in Kyushu. We aim at producing “world-class business professionals,” especially “MBAs who understand management and industrial technology both and whose work field in Asia” from Kyushu.

In addition, we offer project seminars in which students can tackle their business problems with professors logically and nalytically, which is an outstanding feature that cannot be seen in western business schools. In these ways, QBS offers you educational program, in which practice and theory are united.
