This is an announcement of CUAAJ relay seminar. The event is co-hosted by CBSCJ.

This event is resonating with the third in the series of CBSCJ seminars that CBSCJ has been organizing since last year under the theme of “Looking for Clues to Revival of Japanese Economy and Japanese Companies“ and the speaker will be Mr. Koji Ikeya, Representative Executive Officer, Executive Vice President and CFO of Mitsubishi Motors Corporation, and Chair of CBSCJ (BUS 88).

Mr. Ikeya will talk under the title of “Mitsubishi Motors Corporation / Corporate Restructuring Efforts-A Case Study on the Revival of a Japanese Company-” and will present corporate restructuring activities undertaken by Mitsubishi Motors based on his long leadership experience as MMC’s CFO, as well as an executive of MUFG Bank.

His talk will include a detailed discussion of how a Japanese company should acquire “the ability to generate profits” sustainably by going beyond a temporary performance recovery through drastic cost reductions and “improving the quality of sales” through higher pricing and lower sales expenses, which Japanese companies are not good at.

Mr. Ikeya will also review Japan’s lost three decades, looking back on his own experience with MUFG Bank where he was involved in a number of major corporate reorganization deals in automobile, electronic, aviation, trading house and other industries, and provide insight into what direction we should be heading in to resurge Japan’s economy and businesses.

This event is co-hosted by Columbia University alumni association of Japan and Columbia Business School Club of Japan and there will be a reception after the seminar for all participants to network with each other. So do not miss out on this opportunity. Non-members are also very welcome to attend.
