What are your thoughts about Doshisha Business School (Global MBA)? I'm an international applicant working in the consumer electronics industry/lithium-ion battery production in Asia.

If you speak fluent Japanese and want to work in Japan, then it's as risky as any other Japanese MBA. Otherwise, why would you want to do that?

Hello. I teach on the program and happy to communicate with you directly. Our first students graduated last year and have been successful in finding good positions, many with Japanese firms here in Japan or back in their own countries. Our program is very well placed with reference to the continuing trend of Japanese firms seeking international talent as they increasingly focus on overseas expansion. Our new webpage will be going live very shortly and please check out the careers section of it to see examples of the types of positions and companies that our graduates are securing.

I'd echo Duncan's skepticism - why Japan? If you're serious about it, maybe check out the programs at these schools as well:

Keio (if you speak Japanese, it's probably the best program.)
Nagoya/Global MBA
Temple University

Your chances to find work afterward pretty much hinge on your knowledge of the language and the culture.

It's better to have an MBA than not have an MBA. But if you want to work in Japan, then Japanese is more useful an an MBA. If you want to work somewhere else in Asia, then take an MBA in that country. It's not as if English-language MBAs from Japan are high-status in that country.

If you read through QS MBA report, Japan is the country that is hiring the most MBA in the world and is where MBA is the most highly paid. If you know just English, English speaking country is obviously the first option. Germany or France is not much better than Japan in terms of job opportunity withou local language. I have learnt a lot from Japan, not just book knowledge. It's really a special country
