Message fromMBA Student "Learn teamwork through practical group work in diversity"

My IUJ Classmates are not just friends. They are more like comrades who discussed, sometimes fought, and struggled with me through group work. A big advantage of IUJ’s MBA programmust be that we can learn how in practice to work as teams by doing group work with people having diverse opinions, cultural backgrounds and work experience. I personally learned a lot not only from my professors but also from my classmates, and that made me realize how much I have yet to learn. “They are working hard, so must I”. Having such comrades in the world…what can be more fantastic than that? My recommended course: Japanese Style Management and Corporate Governance by Hyunkoo Lee You can objectively learn from a non-Japanese professor what “Japanese style” is in comparison to other country’s styles.
