There is an increasing focus on the creation of innovation amongst large corporations, family businesses, and even startups. However, till date, there is a lack of understanding of how organizations or individuals can create innovation that meets end users’ needs. The means towards innovation is more than just applying a “problem-solving” approach.
Corporate practitioners are required to learn a new form of methodological approach that enables them to think and create new products and services that are both user-centric and innovative.
Increase awareness and concepts of Design Thinking
Gain essential competencies in communicating solutions to stakeholders and creating prototypes
Gain 6-months experience to study and create solutions for real ventures or non-profit–organisations using various communication means, such as teleconferencing or social media
This course aims to provide a general understanding of cultural differences in the way people’s mind and behavior works from a social and cultural psychological perspective.
Please note that, although the current course name is Mind and Behavior in East Asia, this is not limited to psychology in the region, but inclusive of the general cultural frameworks around the world.
This course aims to explore and develop the processes of creative and critical thinking and apply them to social issues and complex business problems. To effectively find a solution to problems faced in the 21st century requires both originality and the questioning of assumptions.
Innovative ideas to solve real social needs should always come from individuals or groups that are able to apply their expertise and experience.In this class we will examine the steps that creative and critical thinkers take in approaching problems; practicing questioning skills, brainstorming skills, and then prioritizing and self-reflecting skills that lead to the solution of problems. We will do this through relevant cases drawn from social policy, political and international disputes, and both successful and failed business ventures.
NUCB undergraduate and graduate exchange students enjoyed a “rice planting” experience in Ena city in Gifu prefecture, one of the most beautiful agricultural sites in Japan.
Greater Nagoya is Japan’s third largest metropolitan area after Tokyo and Osaka. Home to front-running companies such as Toyota, the city and its surroundings are clean, safe, and an exciting area to live in. Located in central Japan, the region functions as the transportation hub of the country making travel to other destinations fast and easy. Moreover, because the area was once the home of warlords in Japan’s ancient times, it is rich in historical sites and Japanese traditional culture, attracting many tourists. A World Heritage site, Shirakawa-go, is within easy reach, and the city of Kyoto is located only 35 minutes away by Shinkansen. As such, Greater Nagoya is a place where a well-balanced synergy between modern and traditional cultures exist.
Nagoya is a center of manufacturing craftsmanship, with strong connections to the automotive, aircraft, and industrial robot industries.
A distinctive food culture exists full of local delicacies such as kishimen (noodles), tebasaki (chicken wings), misomikomi udon(miso boiled udon), and much more.
Nagoya’s population density is only one-third of that of Tokyo or Osaka. The city has a number of lush parks that are great for enjoying the weather, jogging, or taking part in the many seasonal events that are held in the city. It’s also a great place for enjoying professional sporting events such as baseball and soccer as well as the annual Nagoya Tournament of the Japan Sumo Association.
There are many well-known tourist spots, such as Hida-Takayama in Gifu or Ise and Toba in Mie, which are easily reached by train from Nagoya. Nagoya also has a well-developed public transportation network of subway and bus lines that make commuting or shopping very easy.
