Creating new value through self-reinvention

The generation of ideas is one of the most important skills a businessperson can have. Through problem-based exercises, fieldwork, and the case method, students develop creative thinking skills and an entrepreneurial spirit. The Global MBA program, offered in both Japanese and English tracks, encourages new ideas without nipping the seeds of original ideas in the bud while ensuring that the time-tested fundamentals become second nature.

Students will practice the methods and processes learned in the class, analyze the results, and summarize them in an original case study that synthesizes the lessons learned throughout the program. English-speaking international students and Japanese professionals will join forces to create new value by taking up topics related to actual situations faced by businesses defining and redefining their industries.

The Global MBA

In addition to the problem-solving management skills acquired in a traditional MBA education, the Global MBA equips students with the ability to observe, analyze, and create new sustainable value from an international perspective. Business leaders need the ability to solve problems and the ability to find problems in all aspects of the organizations they manage. Of course, unprecedented problems often require innovative methods to solve them. These skills are essential for navigating an uncertain future and can be developed by diversifying experiences, interactions, and partnerships.

The Global MBA brings together young businesspeople and seasoned career professionals who are diverse in age, occupation, industry, and international background. Amongst the participants of any class, there may be 40-50 nationalities represented, and just as many languages are spoken. Together, various peers develop a keen awareness of industry conventions and preconceived notions and foster the ability to generate innovative solutions and create new businesses through observation, analysis, and creative thinking.

About MBA

MBA stands for Master of Business Administration, and three organizations accredit MBA programs internationally (AACSB, AMBA, and EQUIS). The standard MBA program in Japan and the U.S. requires one to two years of study. The MBA is a degree in business administration, not a proprietary qualification like those for accountants and lawyers.

In the U.S., the home of the MBA, 100,000 MBAs graduate per year. In addition, it has been reported that 60% of general managers in listed companies hold an MBA degree or higher. The two major industries in which demand for MBAs is high worldwide are finance and securities and healthcare and pharmaceuticals. This is because industries that barriers to entry have traditionally protected are undergoing restructuring on a global scale.
