Business schools must transform themselves to keep pace with the surge in social change. Until recently, private companies sought to maximize their profits by enhancing the economic impact of their activities.
Currently, however, they are shifting their priority to the quest for ways to ensure sustainable development through collaborations with local communities, related organizations, and individuals.
This is because companies have become aware that seeking profit alone could lead to a decline in the value of society at large.
At the same time, contemporary society faces much more complex challenges than ever before as a result of the diversification of values and rapid changes in social systems. This in turn makes it difficult to address social problems through conventional approaches based on the vertical division of disciplines.
Business leaders who are expected to open up the future need advanced management skills to systematically improve the common value of society through dialogues and collaborations with a wide range of people.
HBMS is focused on training the next-generation of business leaders for various regions in Japan, and around the world by fostering management skills to respond to the needs of business people engaged in starting new businesses, creating innovation, enhancing management skills, and succeeding and developing businesses, and by developing emerging management skills to respond to the drastic change in society.
