Program Description:

This course will examine socio-cultural frameworks of modern Japan.  Included in this will be learning how history and tradition blends with contemporary management awareness and practices, global leadership considerations, and the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion experience for those studying business and working in Japan.  The course involves a two-week study tour to Japan, preceded by two orientation sessions.
 During the orientation students will learn about Japan’s history, culture, lifestyles and major aspects of its management practices.  To establish a baseline understanding of the culture and intricacies of the business environment, students are expected to read assigned articles and do their own research on a pre-approved, selected area of focus.  Following the trip, students write an integration paper that compares the research they had conducted prior to the visit with their own experiences and observations amassed during the trip to Japan.
During the first days of the trip the group will stay in central Tokyo, where they will learn about Japan’s economy and business practices and visit key historical and cultural sites.  There will be presentations given by Japanese as well American business people in Japan.  The group will also travel to Kyoto and Hiroshima for sightseeing and other cultural activities.
