    The American economy is showing the sign of recovery. However, as the result of the Brexit and the birth of President Trump, a suspicion was born on the globalization towards cheap labor in developing countries. Recent argument on IoT and Industrial 4.0 is claiming that most of human-being could be replaced by AI and robots in the future. Japanese government became too large as the result of public expenditure and social welfare expenses to maintain the GDP level. Continued issuance of deficit government bonds made the liabilities of the government exceed asset by several trillion dollars. Facing the decrease of population and aging society, Japan has to restructure its social welfare system as soon as possible.

     

    On the contrary, if you look at East Asia, it is impossible to disregard the rapid development of China, ASEAN and India. For Japan to be able to see the brighter future, it is necessary to contribute to the growth of Asia in addition to domestic restructuring of old system. QBS was found in 2003 to raise the managers of Asian growth. We have 15 partner business schools in East Asia. We welcome incoming 10-15 exchange students from the partner schools every year and the number of Japanese students to go abroad is increasing as well. QBS visits our partner schools twice per year, observing the growth of Asia and exchanging the different viewpoints.

     

    QBS has professors from real business world in addition to the academic professors of Kyushu University. Our students come from all kinds of communities including private companies, financial institutions and governments. Do not cry over your blocked life within your closed environment. We would like to see you reactivated by mingling with proactive friends of QBS and we want you to be one of the future leaders of the developing Asia. We believe your vision will open by coming to QBS and by discussing strategic alternatives with network of people.
