Q1 WHY DID YOU CHOOSE GBP?
I chose GBP of Hosei University because I wanted to start a business in the future. I believed that the things I will learn through this program would prepare me well for my business achievements. As the name itself says, GBP focuses on the field of business globally. It offers a wide range of areas to learn from, even during our current COVID-19 pandemic. GBP gives us opportunities to experience global business through activities such as guest speakers from around the world, well-informed seminars, and exciting internships. Difficult as it may sound, these opportunities were fun and exposed me to new things and new friends from around the world. I am glad I chose GBP because it broadens and enhances my global vision, which, I believe, will benefit my future career.
Q2 WHAT ARE GOOD THINGS YOU EXPERIENCED AFTER ENTERING GBP AT HOSEI UNIVERSITY?
Besides learning about a business that may sound mundane to other students, I had fun, especially making friends. I met some of my close friends at Hosei University’s GBP. Our different backgrounds did not hinder our friendship; instead, they enhanced them. They are one of the funniest people to be around with. If not for the online classes we have because of the crisis, I would not have met my other international friends that I now became close with. GBP is not just a program where you study mundane things, but it is also a place where you connect with many people.
Q3 WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO DO AFTER GRADUATION?
After graduating from Hosei University, I plan to acquire business experience by working first as a regular employee. I believe that a better understanding of my employees is essential to a successful company. Therefore, before starting my own business, I want to know the people’s working conditions and environment on-site. After saving up enough capital and experience needed, I plan to build my own to benefit society.
