Course
Contents
Business entities, such as companies, are important players in the economy. They provide products and services while employing people and paying salaries. Management studies cover topics such as types of businesses, entrepreneurship, business development, strategic planning, types of leadership, investment, finance, competition, production management, supply chain management, marketing and advertising, mergers and acquisitions (M&A), and exit strategies, to name but a few. This course examines the management activities observed in Japanese companies. “Japanese Management 1” mostly covers management decisions related to business activities in the Japanese market. “Japanese Management 2” deals with international business operations and crisis management. We use selected case studies, including those published in Harvard Business Review. This online course consists of lectures and class discussions, in which students are expected to actively participate. The order of topics may be adjusted to maximize learning outcomes.
