What is your pre-Babson experience?

Before coming to Babson, I attended Doshisha University. I previously worked as an account executive at Fujitsu FIP Corporation.

Why did you choose Babson for your graduate education?

At Fujitsu, I was an intraprenuer, working as a project leader of a project to launch new cloud service. My interest in entrepreneurship expanded through that experience. Babson was a natural and first choice when I was applying for an MBA.

As a Babson student, what did you do when not in class?

I served as a co-chair of Babson Asia Entrepreneur Forum. We created fruitful opportunities for nearly 200 audience members with guest speakers including CEO of Tabelog, the Japanese Yelp, and the co-founder of Sansan, a famous CRM software company in Japan. I also helped found a nonprofit organization in Boston with my friends. The activities included organizing hackathons with NASA and a business plan competition with a famous Japanese female entrepreneur. I even helped to design a credited course for Babson: Japan: Institutions and Entrepreneurship.

What was your favorite part of the Babson student experience?

Students and faculty members are close. At Babson, I received valuable advice from passionate professors.

What do others need to know about Babson?

Part of my job is to write cases (especially about startups) for GLOBIS University, a leading business school in Japan. Now, I admire the value of Entrepreneurial Thought & Action® as a faculty member of a business school. It is a really powerful concept and necessary in this VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous) world. No other school has such a thing.
