Global COE Program

"Innovation in the Japanese Corporation"

As both a logical extension of its "21st Century COE Program" and to further support education and research centers which foster creative young researchers in their respective fields through participation in world class innovative research projects, the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) established the Global Centers of Excellence (GCOE) program. Since April 2008, HJBS (Hitotsubashi Center for Japanese Business Studies) joined the GCOE-mission and developed the Innovation in the Japanese Corporation --- Education and Research Center for Empirical Management Studies program at Hitotsubashi University.
