Every year, CCBS organizes programs of visiting companies in East Asia Region and conducts overseas study programs based on exchange activities with related overseas business schools.
The students of K2BS are given opportunities to take lectures at overseas business schools, exchange between MBA graduate students and visit high-profile companies under the overseas study program. Through those experiences overseas, they are able to develop a global vision and sense of international business. We also invite overseas managers to attend study programs in Japan.
