The McGill MBA Japan program is a weekend MBA program based on the world-leading Integrative MBA program offered by McGill University’s Desautels Faculty of Management in Montreal. McGill MBA Japan classes take place in Nishi-Shinjuku, Tokyo, placing McGill the heart of business in Japan and Asia.
To enable you to lead effectively and responsibly in an increasingly complex and interconnected world, the Desautels Faculty of Management has created a truly innovative integrated MBA curriculum that breaks down the barriers between traditional disciplines. Our unique integrated management approach will allow you to work across managerial boundaries and to fully understand how organizations function as a whole, and in an international context.
The MBA Japan program is offered on two and sometimes three consecutive weekends throughout the year, with the same class hours and academic standards as the program in Montreal. The weekend format allows you to reflect on what you are studying, and allows you to implement new solutions to business issues while you study.
Laying the Foundations
Integration is achieved through a unique set of core modules. Each module is taught by multiple professors from different disciplines–no other MBA program in the world offers this ground-breaking collaborative approach. Starting with the fundamental quantitative tools needed to understand business issues, our program also addresses the leadership challenges that you need to function as a responsible manager and societal leader.
Students begin the Integrated Core curriculum, consists of four modules. The first module, Business Tools, covers the analytical skills they will need in making decisions. This is followed by Managing Resources and Value Creation, which provide an understanding of the portfolio of resources available to managers (human, financial and technological), to create value through the operations of the organization. Lastly, the Markets and Globalization module will challenge you to introduce this value to the global marketplace.
The first year Core also includes a business case competition that allows you to put what you have developed to work as well as a Global Leadership module which will help you reflect on what success means for you and what goals and responsibilities (personal, organizational and societal) you would like to assume in the business world.
International Study Trip
Starting from April 2013, students in the McGill MBA Japan program will participate in an International Study Trip to McGill’s beautiful Home Campus in Montreal. This will further expand your horizons, and develop your worldly understanding of business. The study trip will take place over ‘Golden Week’ in May 2014.
The McGill MBA Japan’s location in Nishi-Shinjuku places us only a short walk away from Shinjuku Station: one of Japan’s main transportation hubs, with easy access by train, metro, subway, and quick connections to Narita and Haneda airports, and to the Shinkansen at Tokyo Station.
