“Putting my knowledge into practice”
Name: Miguel Herrera
Internship: Boehringer Ingelheim
After discussing and learning different approaches to find solutions through the case method it was great to have the chance to put it into practice. At Boehringer Ingelheim I worked on a strategic marketing project, examining trends, how they will affect the Japanese market and outlining an appropriate strategy for the future. The expectations from the company were high, so it was a wonderful challenge and a chance to prove myself as an MBA-qualified professional.
The Boehringer Ingelheim group is one of the world's 20 leading pharmaceutical companies.
“I learned about myself and my country”
Name: Miko Tan
My internship at V-cube was a true learning experience. I worked on a market analysis and expansion strategy for the Philippines market. Working with V-cube was a pleasure as they were patient and open-minded in mentoring, yet quick and straight to the point with regards to the work at hand. Most importantly however, I learned more about myself and my country through this experience. The opportunity has helped me to grow as a person and motivated me to continue learning even after I receive my MBA degree.
V-cube is known worldwide for its unique one-of-a-kind web based visual communication solutions.
“Applying my skills in a Japanese context”
Name: Yin Fun
Internship: Hitachi Consulting
The support I received from Hitachi throughout my internship really made it a fulfilling experience. In addition to providing guidance and sharing their knowledge of the Japanese business and social environment, the team also demonstrated their Japanese hospitality and I established very good working relationships with them. I also received guidance through fortnightly review sessions with my lecturer at GLOBIS. The internship was a great opportunity to combine my working experiences in my field with the MBA skills I acquired at GLOBIS and apply them in a Japanese context.
Hitachi Consulting provides practical business strategies and technology solutions to companies, and makes social innovation a reality through business collaborations worldwide.
