King's professor mentors in Japan
Dr. Sergio Janczak, Professor of the School of Management, Economics, and Mathematics (MEM), attended the Global Career Seminar. The Seminar is a 10-day, three-credit course which took place August 1-10, 2019 as part of the Summer Cross-Cultural College program with Kwansei Gakuin University (KGU), located in Nishinomiya, Japan.
Large international institutions, including IBM, RICOH, Garuda Airlines, ORIX, Manulife and the Embassy of Canada in Tokyo brought real-world corporate problems to students from KGU, Queen’s University, Mount Allison University, and the University of Toronto. Dr. Janczak helped the students from Canada and Japan to jointly prepare solutions and presentations to the managers of the companies.
“This experiential learning seminar improved students’ skills in solving complex problems in a multicultural environment,” says Dr. Janczak. At the same time, Dr. Janczak is able to take what he learned from his experience and implement that while teaching two sessions ofMOS 2255A/B Entrepreneurial Thinking at King’s.
Other mentors included Professor Miko Takamichi from KGU and Mackenzie Clugston, former Canadian ambassador to Japan.
King’s students are invited to apply to the seminar every year.
