Executive Students Explore Tokyo, Nagoya and Kyoto on New Darden Worldwide Course
Twenty-three Darden Executive MBA students recently returned from an elective course to Japan. This course, separate from the program’s global executive residencies, allowed students to learn about business in Tokyo, Nagoya and Kyoto. While Darden has run Darden Worldwide Courses for full-time MBA students to Japan, this was the first course for executive MBAs to the country.
The course, led by Darden Professors Marc Modica and Shizuka Modica, allowed students to hear from leaders of Japanese companies, engage in discussions, visit factories, and learn about Japanese history and culture through a variety of local engagements. Company visits included Kyocera, Fujitsu, Omron and Toyota. Pictorial highlights of the course are included below:
