From ICS, 37 students are traveling overseas to participate in GNW programs hosted by partner business schools around the world.
The Tokyo program hosted by ICS, which ran for five days from March 3, was entitled 'Innovation: Japan style', and was one of the top three most popular programs chosen by the students. The course demonstrated to the participants the unique innovation and globalization challenges facing the Japanese economy and business world by exposing them to a variety of corporate practices and market phenomena in Tokyo and Japan.
