JAPANESE SOCIETY AND BUSINESS, Spring 2006

[Instructor]
Mitsuhiro Umezu

[Course Guide]

Course Description:

Goal:

In this course, we will analyse contemporary Japanese society and business from an ethical perspective.
Through lecture and case discussion, I would like to find a balancing point of culturally contextualized management and globally acceptable norms for future international business. Also, I would like to discuss the strong points of Japanese Style Management which could be
transferable to other cultures, and the weak points which would be universally unacceptable.

Method:

First, I will highlight the historical and theoretical aspects fundamental to analyzing Japanese society and business from an ethical perspective. Then I will assign you to read short cases which describe recent incidents that have caused public controversy both in Japan and elsewhere.

Classes: 13
One 90-minute class per week

Feedback: For your suggestions, please write to us.
