Shizenkan University (大学院大学至善館, Daigakuin daigaku shizenkan), commonly referred to as Shizenkan, is a Graduate School that offers an MBA Program in Leadership and Innovation Japan. Shizenkan was established in 2017 in Nihonbashi, Tokyo Japan. Shizenkan Graduate School of Leadership and Innovation opened in Tokyo in August 2018. The master's degree is accredited by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) of Japan.

Shizenkan has 58 faculty members from equally diverse backgrounds, including business and design schools, the liberal arts, psychology and coaching. There are 14 full-time and 44 visiting professors.

The name of the school, Shizenkan (至善館), derives from the Four Books and Five Classics of Confucianism (四書五経): Shi (至) means ultimate; Zen (善) means goodness, and Kan (館) means school.

The logo was designed by Go HOSOKAWA. The black square indicates Western rationalism. The black ambiguous shape indicates Asian spirituality. It symbolizes the bridge for these two ways of understanding the world.

Shizenkan was founded based on the foundation of ISL (Institute for Strategic Leadership), the “whole-person” leadership educational institution, established in Tokyo, 2001. ISL has an all-inclusive executive leadership training program for corporate executives.
