Global business in the 21st century can no longer rely on simple calculations of profit and share performance as the primary measure of success. With the focus on sustainability, the Doshisha Global MBA guides students to explore and enquire beyond the established boundaries set by established theories and practices of global business and management to look beyond ‘business as usual’. As they grow into global-minded leaders, students will not only cover the breadth of standard MBA core subjects, but also develop deeper insights from the program’s three focus areas, and hone their analytical prowess through our program’s research thesis component.
The Global Business and Management Studies (Global MBA) Program
On top of a solid foundation in the core business subjects, you can design a program to match your interests by choosing from a full menu of courses and program options, including our three special focus areas of Sustainability and Green Business, Culture and Creativity, and Business in Asia. You will also build strong leadership and communication skills, and sharpen your ability to think, research, and write analytically and strategically—qualities that employers look for in an MBA. Another unique program feature is the chance to study Japanese, take some classes in our Japanese MBA program, and interact with a range of businesses based in Kyoto and the Kansai region.
Our aim is to prepare future business leaders who are willing and able to respond effectively to the emerging needs of the increasingly diverse groups of people participating in the global economy. The Doshisha Global MBA program offers a unique experiential MBA to students willing to work in partnership with professors and local and multinational business leaders when exploring - and challenging - traditions and trends in global business and management.
Since its inception, a striking feature of the Doshisha Global MBA program is the diversity of the people who make our program special. The students we work with come from a wide variety of backgrounds; in 2016 we accepted students from 20 different countries. We welcome applications from aspiring and inspiring individuals regardless of gender, ethnicity, religion, or nationality.
