What is the J-Global Mini-MBA? A mini/micro-MBA is becoming popular around the world but it tends to only explain global best practices. An intercultural mini MBA explains in a. practical way how to adapt and apply those lessons for use in a Japan-based organization. Our program not only teaches the practical skills and mindset necessary for a global workplace but it has been developed in conjunction with experts in the field from Japan’s top universities, so it also includes academic content and advanced study skills that one would ordinarily gain from a full MBA. This program is fully bilingual and includes an appreciation of Japan’s unique strengths in team-based organizations and how to bridge gaps with global counterparts which focus on individuals. Do you have concerns such as these?

  • You want to build the strategic mindset and tools to win promotion and bigger global roles

  • You want to learn the principles of global strategy, marketing, sales, and organizational design, and how to apply them in Japan.

  • You need to develop key leadership and communication skills to bridge typical cultural gaps.

  • You need to create a new resilient mindset for self and colleagues for dealing with constant, stressful unpredictable change.

  • You want to transform your role and your organization’s culture, strategy, and processes for global success

  • You are motivated to do an MBA but you are concerned about the costs, time, and lack of work-life balance
