Japan losing competitive edge due to poor practical training, expert warns | The Japan Times.


“Many firms are also building new factories overseas, and there is an increasing need for people that are comfortable working overseas. Under such circumstances, Japanese corporate managers should have international mindsets, Green said.  

Asked who in Japan fits this bill, he named Masayoshi Son, chairman of Softbank Corp., as one example.

“He promotes internationally thinking people and trains them in an international way. So people who’ve been part of his organization have a rough experience, but they become very well prepared for life in international business,” said Green, who has known Son since the time he was CEO of mobile services provider Vodafone Japan, which was later sold to Son’s company.”

Comox Valley School District #71 and North Island College welcome you to Vancouver Island to study.  Why not choose to study at a destination less well travelled?  Many people have heard of cities such as Vancouver and Victoria, but what about Courtney, Comox and Tofino?  The central part of Vancouver Island has smaller communities with great schools and less international students, which means more native English speakers for you!
