“Japanese Management: Unlocking Toyota’s Success in the Americas” MBA Trial Class

Friday, October 27, 2023 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM (Pacific Standard Time)
Explore the GLOBIS MBA through a Trial Class, learn practical business skills, and take the first step towards a life-changing experience.

Toyota, a global automotive industry leader, was once a latecomer to the American automotive market, facing criticism for its initial low horsepower and quality. Yet, the brand has defied the odds and risen to become the No. 1 car brand in the United States by 2022 (according to CarPro).

In this seminar, we will explore:

  • The difference between Toyota and the other OEM (Original Equipment Management) brands
  • Toyota’s unique approach to the development of its employees and their skills
  • How Toyota is preparing for the evolution of the automotive industry

In this trial class, participants will explore the topics above, while experiencing GLOBIS’s interactive class style. The lecturer, Mr. Nakamura, is a subject expert in Japanese Management and has over 15 years of experience in conducting global training for leading Japanese companies.

Don’t miss this opportunity to gain valuable insights into Toyota’s roadmap to success and the innovative strategies that have propelled it to the forefront of the American automotive landscape.

In this trial class, you will:

  • Experience GLOBIS’s unique case-centered and active learning environment
  • Discover the GLOBIS ecosystem and how we enable business education beyond the traditional MBA curriculum
  • Speak directly with our Admissions Advisors to learn about our programs in more details
  • Have the opportunity to receive a free ebook “KOKOROZASHI: The Pursuit of Meaning in Business.”

This class introduces frameworks and knowledge from the GLOBIS MBA course “Japanese Management: New Systems, Lasting Values,” a very popular course for new students at GLOBIS looking to dive into the world of Japanese business.
