内容
Course
Contents
This is an all-English, student centered and project-based course. This course requires students to work collaboratively in international teams, carrying out research to understand the needs of the client, before developing solutions to propose to the client.

Students are required to analyze business problems, develop solutions to these problems, and professionally present their solutions to the client for evaluation and feedback.

The specific class content changes every year depending on the needs of the client. However, past clients have asked for proposals related to:

-developing a branding and marketing strategy for light to heavy duty trucks to key customers in the Japanese market
-developing a digital training strategy for the human resources training academy of a vehicle manufacturer
-examining customer attitudes and experiences for a key athletic shoe and clothing manufacturer

The example course schedule below presents an example of how the course may be structured. Generally students will meet with client representatives 2 – 5 times during the class.
