MBA-IB offers opportunities for students to learn at partner universities as well as to visit global companies outside Japan.
Our students visited various companies and institutions in Germany focusing on Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility. The students were given the opportunities to present their research findings to the management of the various companies as well as participate actively in discussion.
Our sincere thanks to German Sport University Cologne, TÜV Rheinland, Cologne Business School, 3M, and Bayer for their generosity, hospitality and warmth.
MBA-IB student Mr. Vladislav KLISHEVICH joined the Summer Program at KU Leuven in September 2019.
Here are his comments:
“The week-long summer program provided a rare opportunity to look at the European legal and political systems from the inside. Along with lectures by top scholars, the course included a seminar at the European Commission and discussions with judges from the European Court of Justice which was very educating and inspiring. Also, the university made sure we could savor the town's rich history and cuisine after classes. The atmosphere was as international as it could be with participants coming from Brazil, Chile, China, Japan, the Philippines, New Zealand and of course the EU.”
