内容
Course
Contents
English skill is a founding principle upon which the Department of Global Business at Rikkyo University was created. This class introduces students to the rationale underlying that strategic decision by the College of Business. It explores the growth of English as a global language of business, including some of the difficulties and dangers from having a common language. This class also focuses on the movement, within companies, to adopt English as the common language of the corporation. Using Rakuten as a case study, students will learn about the opportunities and challenges for companies and individuals from such policies. Students will then explore the experiences of other companies and present their findings to the class.
