Hiroki Isono

Dr. Hiroki Isono, an MBA graduate from NUCB Business School, has written an article entitled "Aiming to be the hospital of choice and trust for everyone" (May 1 and 15, 2021) which was featured in the issue of Hospital Compass, a specialized magazine for hospital managers.

This article is part of a new series of articles titled "Philosophy and Job Satisfaction Create a Virtuous Circle". He describes in detail how he realized that general medicine, his specialty, and management are similar, and how they can be combined to create a virtuous cycle. Mr. Hiroki 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, Mr. Isono 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.
