Dean's message


Satoru KIMURA, Dean of MBS

MBS (short for Meiji Business School) is mainly targeted at the development of human resources for three (3) areas to encourage dynamism of the Japanese economy and society and has established the education system (curriculum design and other matters) to this end.

The first target is to foster successors and support personnel for the development of family businesses (medium-sized businesses). Candidates for successors who are not general managers cannot become good business managers, even if they excel at something. I believe we can contribute to the development of local communities through the cultivation of excellent successors.

The second target is to provide a place for career change to potential human resources. Further enhancing the value creation ability of individuals and promoting realignment with the place where that ability is exercised is a key for revitalization of the Japanese economy.

The third target is to cultivate personnel who are actually responsible for launching a new business. Critics cannot move things forward. We promote human resource development through interaction with those who have established a new business.

Let me explain the curriculum through which human resource development will be pursued. To put it briefly, the above three targets are for the development of general managers. Taking over an existing company, launching a new company, and becoming a senior executive of an existing company: all these efforts can be said to be a program for the development of general managers.

It is necessary to provide subjects required to achieve such targets and have students take them. With marketing, management, and comprehensive tax management put as major fields and finance, accounting, and real estate management located around those fields, MBS has designed a path to being general managers.

At the same time, adaptation to the global age is a must. MBS also provides rich English subjects and programs to improve English skills. The business school has also enhanced training programs at business schools abroad.

We recognize that the expansion of knowledge through classroom lectures is also valuable. Is it not more important and fascinating to design the creation of “street fighters” now in Japan?

MBS aims to offer opportunities to have fun discussing with those who are interested in these things including graduates and aspires for further enhancement.
