Bringing Smiles to Patients, Providers, and Communities (January 1 and 15, 2021)


Alumnus Hiroki Isono

Dr. Hiroki Isono, an MBA graduate from NUCB Business School, has written an article entitled "Bringing Smiles to Patients, Medical Professionals, and the Community" which was published in the January 1-15, 2021 issue of Hospital Compass, a magazine for hospital managers. This article was a contribution to a special feature titled "Human Resources Required to Take Charge of Hospital Management and Drive the Organization."

Dr. Isono studied at our school with the aim of becoming a future hospital manager, based on the hypothesis that what is required of hospital management personnel can be learned through an MBA. In the article, he describes in detail how he realized that general medicine, his specialty, and management are similar, how he acquired basic knowledge of management, logical thinking, decision-making, and execution skills through case method classes, and how he used these skills in the medical field. The book shows firsthand that obtaining an MBA is an option for those who will be responsible for hospital management in the future.
