knowledge, skills, and mindset for tomorrow leaders

After graduating from IUJ in 1990, I worked for more than 10 years overseas. My experiences at IUJ have always been a strong foundation which has enabled me to work with people from various backgrounds. Likewise, this new efficient and intensive programme will help you obtain the basic skill set needed to perform in a global as well as “pan-Asian” context.

“I believe that no other experience could substitute for my time at the International University of Japan (IUJ). The series of study and research activities provided valuable opportunities similar to top management experiences. Such activities were undertaken in a very diversified environment. It is not easy to find a place where you can participate in such a globalized community. The faculty has vast expertise while students have different backgrounds and nationalities. Studying at IUJ means not only a chance to develop sophisticated business management knowledge but also to broaden your global human network.

“Learn teamwork through practical group work in diversity” A big advantage of IUJ’s MBA program is that we can learn how, in practice, to work in teams by doing group work alongside people with diverse opinions, cultural backgrounds and work experience. I personally learned a lot not only from my professors but also from my classmates, and that made me realize how much I have yet to learn.
