The 9th meeting of the Learning Network was held virtually
On Monday, February 22, the 9th Learning Network was held virtually. About 20 current and former students and faculty members of the School participated in the 9th session, which was held under the theme of "MBA-Measures for the Declining Birthrate."
Based on data released by the Cabinet Office, the participants discussed the situation, causes, and measures to be taken to deal with the declining birthrate facing Japan, from the perspective of an MBA who can balance a long-term vision with immediate actions. A number of thoughtful comments were made about childbirth, childcare, marriage and divorce, which are important topics not only for society but also for each individual.
This year's theme was planned and organized by Mr. Hideyuki Sahara, an EMBA alumnus who is a working father. Participants interact with each other regardless of their course of study or year of enrollment, and actively exchange information and opinions asynchronously using the Facebook group. In this way, one of the major attractions of studying at our institution is that there are ample opportunities for students to deepen their learning and put it into practice while expanding their personal networks and insights throughout their lives.
About the Learning Network
This is one of the official networks established by the alumni of our institution.
It is a network for current students and alumni to deepen their mutual learning by sharing their own learning and skills through output sharing. We are looking for people who not only participate, but also output. You can learn not only from the input in the classes, but also from the output in this network.
The Executive MBA program was launched in 2003 as the first program of its kind in Japan for working adults who wish to become core members of corporations. Ninety percent of our faculty members are practitioners who have been active on the front lines of business. Unlike the unidirectional academic lectures for training researchers, the program provides practical learning directly related to business by reflecting the experience and knowledge gained through practical work in the lectures.
