Interested to know what careers do alumni take after the MBA program at Hitotsubashi ICS? Then take a peek at the Alumni Talk Session held online on Saturday, June 27! We welcomed three alumni panelists:
On this Byline ICS piece, Aiko Tokiyama, one of the MBA Coordinators, interviewed two current MBA students and one alumna on their experience of studying for an MBA during the first years of motherhood. Doro started the program when her daughter was around 2. Hong found out she had been accepted to the program soon after learning she was pregnant; she began her MBA studies when her daughter was three months old. Aya welcomed her son in the same week the program started in September 2019, so joined her MBA class in March this year.
These are the books recommendations from Professor Hiroshi Kanno, to read during this quarantine or any time!
Deciding to get an MBA requires careful weighing of multiple, often competing, factors: time, money, career stage, personal and family needs, not to mention post-MBA goals. The Hitotsubashi ICS MBA eases the stress of this balancing act by offering a fully customizable second year that gives students enrolled in its Two-year Program the flexibility to tailor an experience perfectly fitted to personal and professional goals. Two-year Program students can select from a wide range of interactive, immersive activities designed to stretch, challenge and inspire.
The state of emergency has been lifted, but there’s no need to rush to the streets! Why not do some virtual reconnaissance on some ICS-related locations?
These are the books and poem Professor Catherine Sibala recommends you to read during this quarantine or any time!
We want to congratulate Professor Satoko Suzuki for having her published research paper "Emotional fortification: Indulgent consumption and emotion reappraisal and their implications for well‐being" as one of the top 10% most downloaded papers of the Journal of Consumer Behaviour; (between January 2018 and December 2019). Read here a short comment about her research paper, that Prof. Suzuki shared with us:
In this Byline ICS edition, our MBA students shared with us how they have been managing the swift change from in-classroom lectures to online sessions. Although most people have adjusted very quickly to life online, studying online is different and requires more discipline. Our students shared with us their tips on how to study efficiently at home.
