【Message】
There exists a large gap between the theories of management and economics, and the realities of corporate management. Not to dismiss academic theories as being unuseful, I strive to offer lectures which will help students learn systematic knowledge which will be beneficial in considering businesses, in addition to learning effective and balanced perspectives when practicing management.
