"Why do we live? This simple question is what I want you to think in my course. This world is full of possibilities, but the "time"(one of our most precious resource) is limited. Therefore, we have to choose in which aspect we would like to focus. Being able to answer the above question gives you a clear criteria on where to focus. Maybe no one can answer the question with 100% certainty, but it is important that we keep searching for the answer. I am looking forward to discuss with you in this never ending quest."

Megumi Taoka
Accounting and Finance, Organizational Behavior and HRM, Specialization
"Mastering accounting as a common language of business has never been so relevant and exciting for us all. Accounting can serve as the global language, allowing us to travel anywhere and reach whomever we make business with. On the other hand, emotional intelligence, as the basis for effective organizational behavior, allows us to connect and collaborate on a deeper level. Interestingly, if you understand that accounting is merely a tool to translate basic human behaviors into numbers, you will see how nicely financial literacy and emotional intelligence complement each other in actual management practice. I get great joy out of conducting training in these two different but equally important MBA skills. Be prepared to be good at both, as that’s what it takes to be a leader."

Philip Jones
Global/Asia/Japan, Innovation
We all have experiences, perspectives, insights and ideas that are germane to the study of business strategy. While the quality and originality of these ideas often have very little to do with the number of years a person has spent on the job it is by looking at the experiences and insights of those who have gone before us (i.e., the business leaders that you will meet in our case studies) that we gain the means by which to test the viability of these ideas.
