The course will explore Japan’s rich cultural and business traditions within economic, social and political contexts, with two weeks on-site in Tokyo, Japan, preceded by four pre-departure class sessions on the Notre Dame campus during the spring semester. Tokyo, the world's most populated metropolis, is home to more Fortune 500 companies than any other in the world. Students will visit important cultural heritage sites, meet with senior business executives, and participate in dialogue and shared learning with Japanese students and scholars. Course topics include U.S.-Japanese business, approaches to business ethics, technology and innovation, energy, and intercultural communication, among others.
Students earn 3 credits through preparatory class sessions on campus followed by two weeks onsite in Tokyo. Class sessions onsite take place on the campus of Keio University and in the city of Tokyo, with visits to corporate centers and historic sites to provide cultural context to business operations in Japan.
