It does so thanks to its membership in the pioneering Global Network for Advanced Management, of which Hitotsubashi iCS is the sole member in Japan.

The week-long program on "INNOVATION X GLOBALIZATION: Super Aging Society Japan" will showcase Japanese innovation, and spur dialogue among global business executives about the unique contributions Japanese business and society are making in this critical area of social and economic concern.

Through the coming week, 548 Executive MBA candidates and 11 leading business schools along with the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD; a "global, CEO-led organization of over 200 leading businesses working together to accelerate the transition to a sustainable world (...) representing a combined revenue of more than US$8.5 trillion and with 19 million employees") will participate in the EMBA Global Network Week (GNW).

The Tokyo event is part of an initiative of the pioneering Global Network for Advanced Management, a network of 32 leading business schools from diverse regions, countries, cultures, and economies in different phases of development. EMBA Global Network Weeks are 1-week intensive courses held at Global Network school all over the world, offering students at these schools program options on four continents.

INNOVATION X GLOBALIZATION: Super Aging Society Japan

The week will showcase Japan's leading edge in meeting the unprecedented challenges, for business and society, of a "super aging" population, of which the share of those 65 or over is expected to reach 30% by 2025, and to near 40% by 2050. The program will feature field visits, speeches by top executives in Japan, and workshops.

The program features a group project created by Hitotsubashi ICS with Tokyo FabHub, which amplifies the value and promise of small factories in the Tokyo region to the global business community. Through Tokyo FabHub, the global program participants gain firsthand experiences with the most innovative Japanese manufacturing sites.
