Akira Morio
Innovation
"If you wonder “Why do I need to study finance at a Japanese school?”, welcome to my class! In the Financial Reorganization course, we cover M&A, corporate restructuring and bankruptcy reorganization topics. You will learn financial practices of US investment banks and companies as compared to those in Japan/Asia. The recent world financial crisis may have revealed to us that the US-style finance theories and skills require an overhaul. I look forward to exchanging various views on capitalism, free-market mechanism, shareholder activism, and what to do with the “greed of Wall Street”!"
