I have been studying corporate analysis since high school and I had an interest in the Japanese language. I decided to go to Musashino University because I could study corporate analysis there. When I first started, I was not very good at Japanese.
However, I gained more opportunities to spend time with Japanese students and made friends so I gradually got used to living here. I realized and knew that it is important to interact with Japanese people in order to improve my Japanese abilities. I attended seminars on corporate analysis and marketing were beneficial in my studies. The seminar teachers are brilliant researchers who taught me about business from a number of different points of view including topics separate from the subject matter of the seminar. At Musashino University, I learned a lot of things which can be utilized in actual business environments. After graduating, I got a job at a Japanese company. Getting a job in Japan involves fully getting to know oneself through the process of job hunting. Musashino University also provides an extremely useful support system including recruitment information and employment examination strategies. I would like to be able to make contributions towards exchanges between Japan and my home country while utilizing the knowledge and experience I gained studying at Musashino University.
