IUJ, with its uniquely internationalized campus environment where English is the shared language, proudly offers special training programs to Japan‘s leading corporations. lUJ’s international students participate in these programs as facilitators making the programs different from what other institutions can offer. The common theme for the programs is to help corporate Japan prepare to be more effective in the emerging markets.

The following are examples of such tailor-made programs:

Global Leadership Program (GLP)

Emerging countries in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond are rapidly changing into production hubs as well as huge consumption markets. Many Japanese corporations are expanding their businesses to these countries in increasing numbers. They recognize that globalization in emerging markets is a major opportunity to be capitalized on as part of their growth strategies. There is a strong need in these corporations for competent global managers who can lead the international business deployment. The IUJ’s Global Leadership Program (GLP) aims to respond to this critical need to develop and train such global managers. Highly effective global managers are equipped with 2 important management skills combined; i.e., business skills and intercultural management skills. The effective managers achieve high performances by taking full advantage of these “smart skills.” Hence the GLP focuses on the development of the smart skills, which will nurture the needed global mindset in global managers.
