Introduction MBA program
As technology evolves and societal and economic structures change, to plan a new business that can grow into the future, I thought I should have relied not only on what I have experienced but also relearned about management from the base of all knowledge. I was also attracted to the connections with people that can only be obtained in a university, not in the real business world.
You will find various students and stakeholders at GSM-KU, like myself. I had been working as a meeting planner for 15 years, and realized that the management of international meetings became more complex and dynamic, therefore I decided to study again in business school. Two years of experience broaden my mind, and I could find my precious friends and mentors at GSM-KU. If you will be in IPROMAC(international class), I would strongly recommend to expand your network with students in Japanese class as well, because it will be your lifetime asset. I always enjoyed discuss with my classmates from different age and background, to know different perspectives each other. I […]
I was at a turning point in my life when I was in my 40’s because I could not find anything new to be truly passionate from the bottom of my heart. Over the 20 years of my career, I had experienced "business full course", such as being an office worker, working at my father's company and starting my own business. As I had accomplished what I wanted to do in life, I was seeking new possibilities. Therefore, I tried to rethink my business and career goals by studying at GSM. I thought GSM was the best place to meet people who have an entrepreneurial spirit and a unique point of view. In addition, GSM has a global academic network and unique professors who take many interesting classes. Thus, I chose GSM for a great opportunity to discover new possibilities.
Before I came to Japan, I was working as an electronics research, design, and development engineer in Singapore. As I was working on new product development and existing product projects in my previous company, it brought out my interest in becoming a project manager. So, I searched for further study programs that would be helpful for my career path, and I found GSM. The unique thing about GSM is that it offers an MBA program that specializes in international project management. It gave me a chance to upskill myself by combining my previous hard-skills and the industry knowledge with new soft-skills that I learned through management courses. And most of the courses in GSM are taught by people who have professional experience; for example, Mizuho securities affiliated professors, project management professionals from JBIC, and entrepreneurs, and it provides us a great insight into Japanese business as well.
The main reason why I chose GSM is that I can acquire knowledge and skills necessary to actualize smooth project management and also broaden my perspectives to the globe while staying in Japan. In addition, it is very attractive for me to nurture my mindset to management layer through business practice courses in GSM.
Staying in Japan is very important for me because I am so certain that I would face with Japanese clients striving to expand their businesses internationally in my career as a consultant. Fulfilling my perspectives of both Japanese and international business environments would be the best way to add value to my future clients.
