MBA Internship in Tokyo

Posted by Jeff (Jian) Mou on Mar 26, 2020 11:27:42 AM

In this Byline ICS edition, second-year MBA student, Jian Mou (Jeff), shares his internship experience at one of Japan's leading companies in the construction industry. Read his reflection here:

I had the privilege of completing an internship at Technos Co. Ltd., a Kumagai Gumi Group company specializing in the development, design, and maintenance of equipment and parts for construction work. I interned in the Department of Overseas Business Development, which works together with the company's overseas offices in Singapore, Taipei, and Ho Chi Minh to monitor the implementation of regional business development activities.
The time I spent was immensely eye-opening in terms of being exposed to real overseas business expansion issues that a globalizing Japanese company faces every day. Challenges such as how to ensure its corporate culture remains intact while being flexible to cater to the local business context.

Posted by Mina Nishisaka on Jan 28, 2020 6:33:04 PM

The Japanese Culture Course at Hitotsubashi ICS takes students on a 6-week journey from ancient/traditional Japanese culture to modern-day Japanese pop culture, each course under a concept such as 和(Wa Harmony, ), 神仏(Shimbutsu Gods and Buddhas), 節(Setsu Milestones and Transitions), 礼(Rei Manners, Appreciation, Courtesy), 粋(Iki Chic, Cool, etc.), and かわいい(Kawaii Cute, Adorable, Imperfect,etc.) Course instructors Motoko Kimura and Mina Nishisaka from WaNavi Japan take students outside the classroom each week to allow students to use their five senses and to discover Japanese culture in a holistic way.

Looking back at my MBA at Hitotsubashi ICS

Posted by Byline ICS on Oct 8, 2019 5:06:16 PM

To welcome our Class of 2019 (entrance year), alumni returned to ICS to join #foundationweek for a panel discussion, in which they shared with the incoming class their most memorable learnings from their time at #HitotsubashiICS and how they have leveraged their MBA throughout their careers. Perhaps the most valuable insight was their advice for this journey the #HitotsubashiICS2019 students have embarked on.

In this #bylineICS piece, we want to share the reflections that Miku Suzuki prepared for last week's alumni-panel discussion, as her busy agenda prevent her from joining us this time.

Risk & Return, how much are you willing to bet?

Posted by Byline ICS on Sep 10, 2019 8:03:00 AM

- Risk and Return, there is a positive correlation between risk and return, so the bigger the potential of return, the higher the risk you must undertake. You have all gone through a very tough program, so you are now prepared to take big risk, so go ahead and take on your next challenge, as the biggest risk is not taking any risk. These were Professor Tomonori Ito’s send-off message to the Hitotsubashi ICS graduates.
