Message from director 

As 2019 marks the fifth year of the Global Master of Business Administration (GMBA) Program, the Hosei University Business School of Innovation Management is undertaking a strengthening of the GMBA curriculum.

We are enhancing the compatibility of the GMBA program with the existing Japanese MBA program by equalizing course credits, and increasing the credits required for graduation by 10 to a total of 48 credits.

In order to further deliver on our mission “to foster innovators in business and society,” we are taking two steps to deepen the learning experience as follows:

First, we are adding new courses in human resource management, strategy formulation, and open innovation studies. These courses are essential for our graduates to prosper in the rapidly changing global business environment.

Second, we are expanding our internship courses. Internships are a key feature of the GMBA program, and through them our students experience work in regional government/community organizations and innovative corporations. This practical learning is a vital counterpart to classroom learning, while also providing intensive Japan-based cross-cultural training. In order to increase the effectiveness of the internship learning process, we are establishing a new pre-internship preparatory course, “Business Practice in Japan.”

We appreciate your support as we raise the international competitiveness of the GMBA program.

Sincerely Yours,

Seiichiro Yonekura, PhD
Program Director of GMBA
