Finance and Accounting Program (one and half year) : M2 2020-2021

The Reason Why You Chose GSM


I am entering GSM while still employed at my company. In order to achieve better results in my job (investment management), I wanted to learn the most advanced theories and practices in this GSM.

What is the attractiveness of GSM?

It is possible to study a very wide range of subjects, some passively by listening and reading, and some actively by group work and discussion. You can learn from university professors who have mastered theory, or from practitioners who are on the cutting edge of practice. Many of the classes are available in English, and since there are many students from overseas, I sometimes felt as if I were studying abroad even though I was in Japan.

The Visions of Your Future


I would like to use what I have learned at GSM in my work at the company. There were many things that I used somehow in practice, but did not know the theoretical background properly. After graduation, I would like to utilize what I have learned at GSM to perform my duties with greater precision and depth of thought.
In addition, since I have been able to learn a very wide range of subjects such as finance, accounting, variation, M&A, corporate governance, corporate law, optimization, statistics, Python, marketing, English, etc., I would like to create a synergistic effect by combining them.

Message for Applicants

The Corona disaster hit during my time in school, and my classes are almost completely online. While this is unfortunate, it has the advantage of eliminating travel time and allowing me to use my time more efficiently. I am able to use the free time to work on my company's business as well as to study for the US CPA. I don't know what will happen to the Corona disaster in the future, but this may be a good idea for you as well as for me.
