A new partner university in Tokyo is offering students at the SML the opportunity to do an exchange semester in Japan’s capital city. And the Swiss-Japanese Chamber of Commerce has renewed and extended its contract with the International Management Institute, home to the office of the SJCC.
2018 has already brought two pieces of good news for the SML concerning its Japan-related activities:
New Partner in Tokyo: Rikkyo University, College of Business
Starting from Fall 2018, students of the Bachelor’s degree program in International Management will be able to do an exchange in the exciting capital city of Japan, the world’s third largest economy. With the College of Business of Rikkyo University in Tokyo, the SML has found an excellent new partner. Rikkyo University was founded in 1874 and is one of the oldest and most widely recognized research universities in Japan today. It is currently home to approximately 20,000 undergraduate and 900 graduate students. The College of Business, with which the new agreement has been signed, is located in the center of Tokyo on the Ikebukuro campus.
Information for prospective Students can be found here.
Renewal of Collaboration between ZHAW and the SJCC
The International Management Institute of the SML has been home to the office of the Swiss-Japanese Chamber of Commerce (SJCC) since 2016. After two successful years, during which SML faculty member Dominique Ursprung has managed to give the SJCC a clear and dynamic profile, the membership as well as the demand for networking events has increased significantly. The board of the SJCC has therefore decided to renew and extend this collaboration. Recently, this ongoing partnership was also celebrated on the occasion of the “Shinnenkai”, the traditional New Year reception. Professor Daniel Seelhofer, Head of the International Management Institute, joined the 120 guests at Zunfthaus Meisen in Zurich, where, together with H.E. Etsuro Honda, Ambassador of Japan to Switzerland, he participated in the sake-barrel opening ceremony.
