 The Graduate School of Management, Kyoto University celebrated the
10th anniversary of its establishment on April 1, 2016. Although our 10-years history may be short for higher education institutions, our school is celebrating this anniversary as an important milestone. We have reached the milestone thanks to our stakeholders including the industry, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT), other government authorities and local governments. We would also like to acknowledge the significant contribution of our faculty, administrative staff and students.

 We have produced the graduates from our two-year program for nine consecutive years so far. In April 2016, a new doctoral program was established. In order to foster high-level management professionals who take leadership in the changing social and economic environments, we will continue to transform ourselves and challenge new issues. We would like to sincerely appreciate your continuous understanding and support in the future.
