What is Nomura Passport,
Nomura’s new HR Program?

Nomura Passport is a program in which the timing of the employment “entry point” can be set to after the candidate completes his or her doctorate. This allows students to focus all their resources on the research activities process by negating the need to conduct research and hunt for a job concurrently while studying for their doctorate.

  • 01

    Start of employment can be pushed back.

    Students with a Nomura Passport may delay their date of entry to the company until the time they are scheduled to obtain their doctorate. The Nomura Passport system does not oblige students to select Nomura as their ultimate choice of employer.

  • 02

    Department determined before joining company.

    We plan to assign new entrants under the program to departments responsible for AI development, data science, digitalization, new business generation, etc. Details of the workshop contents can be found on the page of “Workshop hosting departments”.

  • 03

    Program limited to students enrolled in doctoral courses.

    Nomura is focusing on the employment of doctoral students in the positions of mathematics/ statistics professionals or IT engineers and also welcome applications from postdoctoral researchers (PDs).
