"MBA curriculumaddedmanagerial viewpoints tomy technical background" The MBA curriculum was the most exciting program I’ve encountered, and I had the opportunity to make it highly diverse with the number of courses IUJ offers. One thing I enjoyed during my classes was seeing life from different perspectives. My technical background focuses on mathematics and engineering, but I was able to learn frommanagerial and behavioral viewpoints. Alongside my thesis, my time at IUJ saw me participate in academic conferences, a library internship, teaching assistant roles in three courses, and facilitator roles in training programs for large Japanese corporations. IUJ creates a learning environment where you interact with individuals from all over the world, and as a result, my mindset shifted to a more global one. Studying here has made me a better human and scientist. I developed a passion for research and continuous improvement that will undoubtedly boost my career as a global leader and researcher.
