Global Talent Program

As it is becoming difficult for Japanese companies to send employees to “study abroad” for extended periods of time, we offer short-term opportunities, of 3-6 months, to immerse into an MBA-type program setting.

In partnership with GPS’s Global Leadership Institute (GLI), JFIT enables young professionals from Japan to enroll in short-term global management training. In increments of 3-months (our university quarter system), GTP participants attend GPS classes together with other masters-level students and receive highly focused, individualized global immersion training. By introducing participants to the work environment in San Diego, the program works to give them a “positive culture shock” and promote an increase in global management acumen. 

Core program components:

  • Individualized exercise and class schedule
  • Exposure to policy and management discourse on innovation and leadership
  • Selection of masters-level classes to increase skill specialization
  • Skill exercises geared toward developing global management leadership
  • Corporate visits and introduction to San Diego’s innovation ecosystem
