I had been thinking about studying business since my early 30's, but I did not want to take a leave from work. Just when I was about to give up on the idea, I read an article about the TUJ American MBA program that lets you earn a degree while you continue working. It was very appealing to me, so I applied.

The program was not an easy one, but I gained a lot from it. First of all, I learned a global perspective. At TUJ, professors and students are from many different countries and cultures. I was surprised to know how people from different cultures think and react differently. I work at a global company, and this helps me deal with non-Japanese co-workers.

I also learned how upper management thinks and sets priorities in business. This helps me understand how to meet (or exceed) their expectations.

Last but not least, I gained a great network with fellow students. Each of them has expertise, and I am grateful to know such great people.
