The Global Leaders for Innovation and Knowledge is a three-and-a-half-month certificate management program that provides continued education for experienced business professionals. Based on Japanese preeminent management scholar, Dr. Ikujiro Nonaka’s “Knowledge-Creation Theory,” the program cultivates innovative leaders with practical wisdom through the acquisition of a broad spectrum of knowledge, including management theory, liberal arts, and methodology.

With Fujitsu-JAIMS Foundation’s management program, we aim to provide practical knowledge to our participants to become leaders in innovation.
