Personal recommendation
Best feature: the people you meet and fun you have with both international and local students. Worst: At the higher levels, I don't think the language programme is that suited to people with European/English language background, but it you combined the language programme with regular classes it would be more interesting and beneficial.

Overall
Personal recommendation
Keio Business School is the Top MBA school in Japan. It is very small, though, so don't expect anything big and fancy (such as Columbia Business School in NYC). The courses are good, but the workload was a bit less than expected. My overall evaluation is that it was a great experience and a perfect way to learn more about the japanese business environment and practice.

Course recommendations
Keio likes its international students to do their special Japanese Language Programme and are generally not too helpful if you want to take regular classes. My recommendation would be to do the language programme for the first semester to brush up on your language skills and then take some regular classes in second semester. But to do this you will have to be very organised and decide well in advance what subjects you want to do-you may need to get some advise from a local student about what subjects to choose. I unfortunately was not organised enough to take regular classes, if I had have done my overall rating was my academic experice probably would have gone up to a 3. Another thing to note is that while it is a fairly good language course, be prepared for the fact that it is mainly aimed at Chinese or Korean students. I found this to be very frustrating. With Japanese people from different language groups need emphasis on different aspects of Japanese. For example the Chinese have no problem with the writing but do have problems with things which English speakers do not. As someone who was already relatively fluent in spoken Japanese I didn't actually find the course to be that useful in improving my Japanese. This was because I spent most of my time learning Kanji rather than brushing up on my grammar etc. However friends who had not done that much Japanese before did improve quite a lot.
