Program Description:

This course will examine the socio-cultural, political, and economic frameworks of modern Japan, the management practices of Japanese companies, and business issues for foreign companies operating in the country.  The course involves a two-week study tour to Japan from May 12 to May 26 preceded by three orientation sessions.
During the orientation students will learn about Japan’s political economy, culture, history, lifestyles and major aspects of its management practices.  Students are expected to read the text book and the assigned articles before the orientation and write a book report and an integration paper that summarizes the articles and integrates major points of the readings.
During the first 10 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.  On Tuesday May 22, the group will travel to Kyoto and Hiroshima for sightseeing and other cultural activities.
