– What did you learn at GBP?

There are many things that I learned during my time at Hosei University. Communication skills, analytical skills and presenting skills just to name a few, but the biggest part of studying at Hosei University is that I got a unique understanding of how to do business and how different businesses work in both Japan and other countries such as my home country of Sweden. This, together with all the different people from all around the world I met while studying here gave me an excellent experience and understanding that I just wouldn’t get in other places which I am so grateful for. I use this experience every day at work since I work for a huge international company with lots of people from different backgrounds, not only that but when thinking about our customers, I use all my skills that I gained from Hosei to maximize our sales and profits. Going to Hosei University and living in Tokyo gave me an excellent opportunity to learn Japanese since I didn’t speak it at all when I arrived here but now I use it every day to a big extent. Challenge yourself and go outside of your comfort zone and do something different like I did, You will have the time of your life!

– What did you learn at GBP?

Throughout my 4 years of university life at Hosei University, I was able to acquire many critical skills such as strong communication, analytical, and problem-solving. GBP course consists of small classes and students are from diverse and rich background. For instance, my batch consists of students from The Philippines, The United States, Taiwan, India, and China. I was able to share my experience and leant to see things from other perspective by having effective communication with my course mates. Going in-depth to my most memorable learning was Service Management and Principles of Marketing. This course allowed me to learn the basic theories and apply them to real-life situations. For instance, we learnt the basic theory of service management, and applied it to promote and create awareness of Hosei University’s new cafeteria. We formed groups to analyze and conducted research to enhance cafeteria awareness. We conducted a survey of 400 Japanese students to understand what their meals preference and subsequently, came out with new menus with diverse meal menus from different countries. Lastly, I learned problem-solving skill which was one of the most essential skills in every course in GBP. All in all, GBP is a course that will definitely prepare one for the real professional world. If you want more excitement during your university life, then you should create your own excitement by taking action. Don’t just do whatever it is in the syllabus, take action to make your university life exciting and memorable.
