I chose GSM because I wanted to learn business administration. My major was engineering and I became interested not only in what to make, but also in how to sell it through activity of a student organization. I had never studied about economics and marketing, so I decided to go into GSM, which provides classes of those subjects for beginners.

【What is GSM?】
In GSM, you can learn many things with attractive people who have various backgrounds (major, age, race). Some students have started a new business and some have worked abroad as an intern. Studying with them is exciting. I have learned a lot from classes at GSM, but I have learned much more from studying with them.

【The prospect of your future】
I like optimization and efficiency, so I’d like to be a person who can make such systems. I’ve developed problem solving skills and broadened my horizon at GSM. Next, I am going to work for a IT company and deepen my specialty in 3-5 years.

【The subject which you recommends】
Econometrics.

【Schedule of the day】
 
7:30-10:00 morning routine, 10:30-12:00 class, 12:00-13:00 lunch, 13:00-17:00 study, 18:00-22:30 dinner & play

【Schedule of the week】 
I take 7 courses this semester. I am usually at university in the day and doing research or studying for the courses. I also enjoy sightseeing in Kyoto on weekdays or in the morning.

【Message for Candidates】
You will be inspired by classmates of GSM who challenge themselves with many things and feel it isn’t enough to only take classes and do homework. Let’s enjoy and learn a lot. GSM will give you an ideal environment for challenge yourself.
