The India-Japan Study Centre (IJSC) with its various programmes offered for Indian managers aims to prepare them to work better with their Japanese counterparts.
The dedicated hubs established in the institute also gets students and company executives to travel to both countries, spend time at the varsities, interact with businesses, and ultimately learn about management, leadership and business practices in both countries, Raj added. Interested candidates can apply online for the programme, on or before August 13 at the official portal of IIMB. There will be no entrance test, or any exam score required for admission to the programme, with the basic eligibility criteria set for managers working in Japanese companies in India and for managers working in Indian companies who are interested in doing business with Japanese companies.
