GSIM Students / Voices
From our Campus To the World
Since my undergraduate years, I set a target to resume my post-graduate studies in a field that is needed to contribute towards the betterment of my community, my country, and the whole world. After gaining relevantly enough practical experience, I came to realize that many resources and talents are wasted due to lack of systematic management approach and absence of clear vision. Therefore, I chose to do my Masters in Business Administration (MBA). The MBA offered at IUJ’s Graduate School of International Management (GSIM) is the perfect fit to help me achieve my goals. International University of Japan (IUJ) offered me an opportunity to study a world-class MBA in the beautiful countryside of Japan with a dynamic diverse student body.
The IUJ MBA program is truly a world class. It is one of the four AACSB accredited programs in Japan. The GSIM is the only Business School in Japan to be included in the Economist prestigious “Top-100 B-Schools of the World” ranking for 8 consecutive years. The faculty members not only academically experienced but also have vast professional practical experience in their respective fields. They deliver a strong up-to-date syllabus using effective teaching methods. I am learning how to transform ideas into actual plans and strategies that can be applied and implemented. One of the unique features GSIM is its core mission which is to develop wise, socially responsible global business leaders.
IUJ is located in the countryside of Japan with well-equipped and excellent facilities. In my daily interactions with the local community, I am exposed to the true untouched traditional Japanese culture. All this creates a peaceful quiet environment that encourages academic excellence.
However, what I mostly like about IUJ is the diverse and dynamic student body. IUJ students come from over 50 different countries. The MBA program allows me to mix and group with people who are in the process of becoming decision makers in their organizations in the near future not only in Japan but around the world. IUJ is the right place to start developing a real global network. Outside the classrooms, there are multiple opportunities to expand business and social network through events, competitions and social gatherings organized by students’ organizations. This cross-cultural experience is making me more capable of reaching common objectives with people from various cultural backgrounds which is a key skill in today’s globally competitive market.
The great African leader Nelson Mandela once said “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” “It is in your hands to make a better world for all who live in it.” The GSIM MBA program is putting me on the track to exactly achieving that
