Tsukuba Short-term Study Program (TSSP)

MBA-IB has entered into student exchange programs with 10 leading overseas universities under the Tsukuba Short-Term Study Program (TSSP). TSSP is a great opportunity for MBA-IB students who would like to get exposed to the business cultures of other countries. Exchange students from each side are enrolled as visiting students and remain members of their home institutions. They are exempted from tuition and registration fees at the host institution.

This has been an enriching experience. I attended the ‘User Experience’ course managed by two professionals working in the design industry. The classes were intensive, structured around group work and discussions which led me to experience the entire process of UX design. Even though I was there for an extremely short duration, I was able to grasp the entire concept of UX. While the interviews conducted (by the students for the data collection exercise were basically in French) undoubtedly were stressful (as I could not understand), I regarded them as invaluable experiences in teaching me ways to adapt and deal with challenging situations as well as developing resilience to overcome similar situations in the business world.

I enjoyed the active and interactive class environment as well as the chance to interact and exchange information with non-Japanese classmates and international faculties at the top-ranked university in Thailand. This experience helped me develop an understanding of the academic environment in Bangkok as a manager who is taking charge of study abroad coordination in my workplace. After taking high quality of classes with talented classmates, I came to the conclusion that these experiences have without a doubt provided me an opportunity to broaden my perspectives.

I was delighted and fascinated to join the MBA programme at Sasin even though it was a very short stay (for a week). It was a very fruitful experience and broadened my horizons from having the opportunity to interact with young and talented future business leaders and by learning from experienced and high-profile professors. Although the period of stay was limited, I could have a chance to acquire new skillset and gain enriched learning experiences in marketing analysis, decision making and the concept of venture capitals.

Attending Sasin was fruitful experience for me to broaden my horizons in learning how future Asian business leaders in Thailand refine their competence as well as expertise and also helped enrich my professional life further from the interactions that I had with them. Although the period of stay was limited, I could have a chance to equip myself with new learnings and gain better insights into the way of thinking and approaching various disciplines. It was highly stimulating and motivating having studied together with the students there. I would like to take this opportunity to encourage myself to strive for greater heights professionally as well as to improve the quality of my output.

Jia Qiao "During I exchange study in Tsukuba University, I learned a lot of professional knowledge. The professors are high level, and the classmates are eager to become well trained managers. Through group study, I learned how to cooperate with people from different countries. In the modern world, it is important to have cross border communication and management ability. Three months are passing quickly. But the exchange study experience is precious and unforgettable. I hope I can come back some day. Thank you every one!"
