Introduction MBA program
After 14 years of experience in the field of inbound tourism to Japan at the Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO) both offices in Japan and abroad, I started my business in 2018. In addition to organizing my experience in tourism marketing academically, I wanted to learn business administration systematically in order to maximize my company's value. There are only a few MBAs in Japan that specialize in tourism, and it is a unique experience to be able to put myself in the best environment for studying "tourism" in Kyoto, which has the best history and popularity.
When I was 31 years old, I had decided to take an examination from this graduate school. The company which started a new business in my college was successfully launched, and the company results have been admitted by business circles. But as the company grew, I began to feel the limit of my ability as a proprietor. I thought I will be able to benefit and further progress my business by obtaining valued experience from focusing on both practical business affairs and hands-on learning. I determined that I should remain free from distractions so entered this graduate school while handing over the reins to my company to an entrusted foundation […]
After graduating from university, I worked for a trading company for about 2 years and later started my own business. Two years ago, I was confused whether I should expand my business. In order to figure it out from a boarder perspective as well as to make my career path more clearly, I decided to take MBA course in GSM-KU. I have gained precious experience during these two years studying, I have met excellent classmates and professors from all walks of life, which gave me different perspectives of life and work. Besides, GSM-KU provided us with such a wide range of curriculum and lectures, including both academic field and practical […]
I majored architecture at university and joined a housing equipment manufacturer as an engineer. After experiencing product development and planning within the product division, I was in charge of promotion and branding, but I was worried that I couldn’t make appropriate decisions due to lack of basic and systematic knowledge about business management and marketing. When I reconsidered my career and changes in society from now on, I thought it would be a good idea to study at GSM, so I decided to take the exam. Currently, I take leave of absence from work for academic purposes so that I can concentrate on learning at GSM.
Since graduating from university, I have been working in the Japanese large travel agency. The environment surrounding the tourism industry has changed rapidly and I felt the need to acquire comprehensive knowledge about business and management. That was when I heard GSM was starting the new Tourism and Hospitality Management Course. Furthermore, I felt that an opportunity to learn in Kyoto, one of the world’s leading tourist cities, was felt simply the best choice to learn the management in tourism business.
