The program on-site consisted of a series of lectures about Russian culture and businesses in the morning, and visits to companies to speak with local workers within the suburbs of Moscow in the afternoon. Learning that there are eleven time zones in Russia, and how business models make the best use of it made me realize how vast Russia is. Furthermore, when visiting a factory owned by a Japanese company, I was deeply impressed to learn that the Japanese ‘craftmanship’ had been passed onto the people in Russia. It was a great opportunity for me to learn about business models unique to Russia and to witness how a Japanese corporation implements their business in a foreign environment. This experience was very helpful in deepening my knowledge in the field of International Management. I believe I never would have been able to gain these new perspectives and knowledge if I didn’t take this opportunity to step outside of Japan.
