Messages from our advisory board members
Prof. Ray Loveridge, Saïd Business School, The University of Oxford, UK
The Global MBA at Doshisha Business School offers an exciting and creative addition to the international market in professional education. The curriculum combines a well proven core of business management disciplines with an imaginative choice of electives. These are designed to take the participant into a world of future global opportunities. This mix of subjects and the unique modes of self-learning offer the technical, social and ethical grounding for a future generation of transnational business professionals. There are only a few places in the world that can deliver such a program at the level achieved by Doshisha faculty. My congratulations and best wishes for a continuously innovative future!
Prof. Joop Stam, Former Professor of University of Twente, Professor Emeritus of Eramus University Rotterdam, Netherlands
Global is the catch phrase of the new Doshisha MBA program. And for very good reasons. No enterprise, system or institution nowadays can survive without seriously addressing the international dimension of its activities. This applies equally to the current and future generation of managers and officers. Doshisha University's new program therefore is a welcome and timely initiative and offers international minded managers from Japan and abroad an excellent choice of solid business management courses combined with highly relevant topics like economic sustainability, technology and innovation. We can be confident that the program, which handsomely matches the philosophy and content of the major European international business courses, will benefit all participants.
Prof. Rosalie L. Tung, Simon Fraser University, Canada
The Global MBA at Doshisha addresses a diversity and range of courses that are both timely and topical. The program advances students' understanding of the role of Japan in relation to its major trading partners: the U.S., Europe, and China. Furthermore, the use of English as the medium of instruction is both sound and pragmatic as English has become the lingua franca of international business. Through a world-class faculty and international student body, it will equip participants with the global mindset needed to succeed in international business in the 21st century.
Third Party Evaluations
Marking one year since the Global MBA course was strengthened as an independent unit and renamed Global Business and Management Studies, we have asked members of our advisory board and others to evaluate the achievements of the unit and have also completed a self evaluation.
