          Prof. Roger King is a prominent researcher of family business. He eagerly talked about desirable management ways of family business in international context, which is a different way from the long-established business in Japan. Andrea L. Santiago, who has abundant experiences in the field of higher education and consulting business, delivered an impressive story that necessary education for sustainable family business started from editing family books with genealogy and picture ones for children. The panelists and audience enjoyed interactive discussion, and this symposium was a valuable occasion to discuss the future direction of family business based on the difference in international context.

          MBS will actively hold symposiums related to Family Business which is one of the key points of us, and we will make efforts to further internationalize by interacting with leading overseas business schools.
