Introduction MBA program
Although I studied business theory at University, I was uneasy about putting this knowledge to practical use. GSM's philosophy is "Educational system that bridges advanced management research and highly specialized practices." I chose to enroll in GSM because I thought that I would be able to learn how to connect theory and practice. GSM also has a variety of students. Ranging from new graduates to experienced professionals. There are many international students, many courses offered in English as well, and an environment where you can learn different ways of thinking. I thought that by putting myself in such an environment, I could grow greatly. Also, as a foreigner myself, Kyoto is a very attractive city. To study in such a culturally rich city was definitely a deciding factor.
As a medical doctor, I treated cancer patients. During these treatments, I have felt the importance of mental care and hospitality. At the same time, I started having interest in managing a company while I was a med student and searching how to study both business and hospitality. In the midst of the search, I learned about the Kyoto University and Cornell University joint program, and I've decided to apply to a program where I'll be able to study both of my interests.
After experiencing management positions at a Mega-Bank, I transferred to a Venture Capital firm investing in entrepreneurs.
Kyoto University has been producing prominent entrepreneurs in Japan, the supporting system of which fascinated me to become a student.
There is a saying that it is the shortest way to master something by learning from the best professionals. I also thought I could accomplish personal growth and develop a competitive human network.
Full-time MBA is unique in Japan, and I believed the hard work drives me to grow.
I had spent my undergraduate years in the economics department of Kyoto University and founded a software development startup company in my undergraduate years. I've been involved in software development since I was a junior high school student, so I knew a lot about "making" but now I want to learn "selling what I made" too. Since I was an undergraduate, I had an attachment to learning in Kyoto, and I chose Kyoto University GSM because the quality of the professors was reliable.
I have been working for a travel agency in Kyoto for six years as a corporate sales representative. As my next career step, I wanted to acquire knowledge and skills that could not be obtained only through field experience. I also wanted to see the tourism industry from outside of the company. The reason why I chose GSM was because I felt that the " MBA in Tourism and Hospitality Management course" would enable me to acquire business management skills and a wide range of knowledge related to service, hospitality and tourism. In addition to lectures, there are many projects outside of the classroom, such as oversea internships, which gave me many opportunities to put my learning into practice.
