KabuK Style / Kenji Sunada recently had the opportunity to host a group of students from Harvard Business School in Boston as part of the School’s Immersive Field Course (IFC). IFC courses are designed to offer students in the second year of the 2-year program an experiential learning opportunity in an off-campus setting.
This year over 280 students elected to take the course, a cornerstone of which is the expertise of faculty, who develop course content focused on teaching objectives met primarily through student-centered active learning opportunities, which can include project work, site visits, speakers, and participating in discussions with senior leadership. These students are typically in their late 20’s and have an average of 5 years of work experience in a range of fields including finance, real estate, consulting, healthcare, military, technology etc.
“We are honored to have had the opportunity to work with Harvard Business School and to have our future students research our unique business model with us.” said Hidenori Goto, COO & CTO of KabuK Style.
“The students’ research provided good insights from other companies that we have not explicitly compared to ours. We believe that, for the students, working with us to analyze a business that has no similar examples was a unique experience that they will never be able to learn from anywhere else.”
Harvard Business School is quick to acknowledge that this important learning experience would not be possible without the support and engagement of our hosts and partners.
“We are extremely grateful to KabuK Style / Kenji Sunada and all the host organizations around the world for all they do on behalf of our students,” said Professor Ramon, who led the group. “The students benefit immeasurably from this experience and we hope the host organizations do as well.”
