● Greeting from the Dean, Graduate School of Management

Dean Yoshinori HARA (January 8, 2019)

Graduate School of Management (GSM), Kyoto University was founded in 2006, and celebrates 14 th anniversary.

GSM, Kyoto University was founded, by fostering advanced professionals, in a global city of Kyoto where tradition meets innovation. We offer a degree opportunity giving students the ability to earn the basics of business management not just business leadership, finance and accounting but more we provide project management operations, services and hospitality for students who will be successful on a global scale. Since 2018, GSM, Kyoto University has started the new professional education development project for executives and managers in the tourism sector, as well as Executive MBA program.

In March 2019, we are expecting a new GSM Alumni Association member who has completed Ph.D. degree in Management Science. From April 2019, we will offer two international full-time two-year programs which are fully instructed in English. One program is International Business Administration Program (i-BA) and the other is International Project Management Program (i-PM). Also, together with the Hotel School Cornell SC Johnson College of Business, we will offer a collaborative degree opportunity, giving students the ability to earn a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from Kyoto University and a Master of Management in Hospitality (MMH) from Cornell University in four semesters over two years.

The role of GSM Alumni Association is increasing more and more, which connects research and practical business, and is encouraging the cooperation with industry, government, schools. Since October 2018, we hold regular lectures and gatherings called GTP (Get Together Party) with the aim to develop relationships among students, alumni, related companies, faculties and staffs. GTP is, in principle, scheduled once a month (In Wednesday evening of the third week of first classes held in the first and second semesters, but please double check the details by yourself), and is planned to be held at the degree award ceremony in March. Let’s create and engage the core culture of GSM Kyoto University together. We are happy to welcome our alumni participations.

We will continue providing global opportunities, exclusive access to a professional network with alumni, and more cooperation projects with public and private sectors.
