6 Student Experience Before the program During/after the program Why did you choose the McGill MBA Japan Program? How did the course affect your leadership, management and confidence skills? Yo Omata, PhD. Class of 2015 I knew McGill was a prestigious school, as I was in the field of medicine. When I started searching for a business school in the Kanto region, I looked into about 10 schools. In the end, the global environment and high quality of professors fit my career goal in corporate senior management. The course helped me greatly develop my leadership and management skills, as well as my confidence. There were many opportunities to present something or take the lead during courses or group work and on student council. Also, many speaking events gave us substantial inspiration. Why did you choose the McGill MBA Japan Program? How has your career developed since graduating? Kunihiro Hattori Class of 2011 McGill offered me the only chance to get an MBA in a globally recognized program while working. The words of my friend while I was working in New York also persuaded me. I worked at Deloitte s New York office from 2007 to I was about to leave New York, full of ideas for starting a new business after returning to Tokyo. I realized I needed skills to build my own consulting practice within Deloitte Japan, and that the McGill MBA was the best means of acquiring business-related skills. I have continued working at Deloitte Tokyo for 11 years now. Inspired by one of the professor s statistics classes, I launched a new business called Deloitte Analytics while in the program. Started by only two of us, the group has grown to more than 50 people. I myself lead a seven-member strategy consultant and data scientist team. My experience in the MBA helped me with the new business, from marketing to team-building aspects. I also started a project promoting global talent. The international management skills I acquired proved invaluable in a multicultural setting. Why did you choose the McGill MBA Japan Program? What was the atmosphere like in the classrooms? Yuji Mono Class of 2003 I believed it to be the best part-time MBA program I could take in Japan. It provided the same level of sessions as those in the Montreal program, which is considered first-class in North America. It was quite good. Our class consisted of about 40 students and almost half of them were non-japanese. The communication among classmates was positive and very friendly. There was always a shared feeling that we would overcome this great challenge through mutual cooperation.
