Japan, a culture ingrained with a deep sense of reverence for its history and traditions, has also remained at the center of global innovation for the past half-century. During this SDSU/Maryland Smith CIBE organized Faculty Development in International Business program, we invite you to experience these dual perspectives firsthand.

Through a series of dialogues with Japanese business leaders, government officials, and academics you will learn about methods being undertaken in Japan to maintain its competitive advantage in the global marketplace. A great understanding of the Japanese ethos will be gained during many opportunities for cultural immersion including a tour of Himeji castle, walking the ancient capital of Kyoto, experiencing local cuisine, and much more.
