Walking around (First day)

After we ate huge Hamburger and Cake, we walked around near the bridge in the city of Santa Monica. Today was Mother’s day in USA too, so there were many families around. In USA, they celebrate Mother’s day in more great scale than those in Japan. Because of that, I think, the restaurant was full of people.

It was very difficult for us to understand those fast English with many technical terms, but all students was earnestly listening to the lesson, because they knew that it was a very valuable experience which one cannot easily participate.

Third day­£

In UCLA, almost all the students were using PC instead of notebook, typing every single blackboard memos. And surprisingly almost all the PC is Apple’s PC, so when you look at the class from the front, you can see many apples lighting. After taking the lesson for 3 hours, each student had different impression, ”ČI understood”É or ”ČI didn’t”É.

    Today's Global Meikyo Class was a fieldwork at “The birthplace of Akiyama Brothers”, “Saka-no-Ue-no-Kumo Museum”, and “Meikyokan”. This trip was also a wander to search Matsuyama Higashi High School's identity. These places are a symbol of a first step, a local place, toward the world. What is your “Saka-no-Ue-no-Kumo”?

How to research Global Companies

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 17:57

    Today's Global Meikyo Class is a lesson from Mr. Yamato Sato, a professor of Faculty of commerce in Keio University.First theme was “What is being global mean?” and second theme was “How to research a global company ~ an important point of view to check”.

    The pictures below was taken during the Q&A. There were many questions, like “How can we found a company?”, and it ended up with lack of time. Let me show you one of it.

Q:“Since the companies we usually see is in business of “B to C” (Business to customer), we feel that number of “B to C” company is larger than those of “B to B”. But actually, 80% of the listed company in Tokyo Stock Exchange, is “B to B” (Business to Business). Could you tell us the reason?”

A:“ “B to B” companies does not need exploitation to raise customers' knowledge about them. For example, the company making mike's component, doesn't sell the mike itself. That is because the business is divided in to each specialized work. Since they are specialized, the customers can't able to get an information about “B to B” companies.”
