Japan Business ​and Culture​

           Conducted in English

This interdisciplinary course will be taught in careful coordination by subject experts to help students explore broad factors that drive companies of Japan and East Asia to global success, and to examine underlying social, economic, and political dynamics. This course aims to introduce undergraduate non​​-business majors in their second year and above to: (1) the overall social, economic, and political dynamisms of East Asia that are critical to the success of businesses and the sustained economic growth of the region; (2) the similarities and differences of corporate organizations, institutions, and strategies; and (3) comparative perspectives that are necessary for them to review businesses, economies, and societies. You will learn through classroom discussion, group projects (case analysis), and visits to corporations and organizations. No prerequisites for this program.

The course also includes a culture program with a four-night stay at a seaside retreat, a visit to the largest Buddha in Japan, a Matsuri performance with taiko drumming and a barbecue to follow, a trip to Studio Ghibli, live Sumo action, and more.

Note: Group Airfare will be arranged for this program.
