This unique book on management studies compiles work of Dr. Kimura, who taught at IUJ and the University of Tsukuba, in a multiphasic manner, providing a breath of fresh air both in research and education. Unfortunately, Dr. Kimura had to give up his efforts too soon due to illness which resulted in an early death.
This book consists of Dr. Kimura's major papers and work by contributors from Japan and the U.S., representing his practical research on managerial strategies he learned at New York University, his alma mater.
Dr. Kimura's teaching method, "another style of MBA," is described by his lecture notes, class schedules, and his students' master's theses and essays.
This will be a required reading for not only management researchers but also students, business people, and researchers interested in MBA education.
