Global MBA students to present in TICAD7 side event on August 27

Updated Aug. 8, 2019
On August 27 (Tues.) from 13:00, Doshisha Global MBA students will be presenting at an official side event of TICAD7 at Pacifico Yokohama (Exhibition Hall, B08). You can learn more about TICAD7 on the official event website or on the website of the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

For this event, a group of 6 students will present on a video and website project they completed in collaboration with other DBS students under the guidance of Prof. Mari Iizuka, Youth for SDGs: Our World, Our Voice. Each student made videos about their home country and business opportunities related to sustainable development goals (SDGs) that they wished to communicate to Japanese businesses. This web/video project aims to promote open innovation of Japanese companies and to contribute to the development of Africa.

A total of 27 Doshisha Global MBA students from 17 different countries participated in this project. In their videos, students explore tangible solutions to real problems and ways that businesses can help create a sustainable world. They are now hoping to expand this project to welcome contributions from international students studying at other universities in Japan.
