【授業の概要と目的（何を学ぶか） / Outline and objectives】
Devising attainable Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and integrating them into their corporate strategies have become priorities at all Japanese companies. A company's choice of SDGs can shape its public image and influence consumers’ purchasing decisions. Through various forms of active learning, including fieldwork, problem-solving activities, and presentations, students will think critically about corporate SDGs and consider their potential long- and short-term impact on society, the environment, and development of Japanese capitalism.
【到達目標 / Goal】
The main goals of the course are (1) to offer students a more practical, experience-based approach to the study of Japanese business and corporate social responsibility, (2) to develop their analytical skills through discussions and fieldwork, and (3) to prepare them to enter the workforce in a variety of ways ranging from improving their interview skills to considering what kind of company or organization they might like to join after graduation.
