Student Profile(s)

El Mehdi Er Raqabi

The MBA curriculum was the most exciting program I’ve encountered, and I had the opportunity to make it highly diverse with the number of courses IUJ offers. One thing I enjoyed during my classes was seeing life from different perspectives. My technical background focuses on mathematics and engineering, but I was able to learn from managerial and behavioral viewpoints.

Alongside my thesis, my time at IUJ saw me participate in academic conferences, a library internship, teaching assistant roles in three courses, and facilitator roles in training programs for large Japanese corporations. IUJ creates a learning environment where you interact with individuals from all over the world, and as a result, my mindset shifted to a more global one. Studying here has made me a better human and scientist. I developed a passion for research and continuous improvement that will undoubtedly boost my career as a global leader and researcher.

"Learn teamwork through practical group work in diversity"

My IUJ Classmates are not just friends. They are more like comrades who discussed, sometimes fought, and struggled with me through group work. A big advantage of IUJ’s MBA program must be that we can learn how in practice to work as teams by doing group work with people having diverse opinions, cultural backgrounds and work experience. I personally learned a lot not only from my professors but also from my classmates, and that
made me realize how much I have yet to learn. “They are working hard, so must I”. Having such comrades in the world… what can be more fantastic than that?

My recommended course: Japanese Style Management and Corporate Governance by Hyunkoo Lee
You can objectively learn from a non-Japanese professor what “Japanese style” is in comparison to other country’s styles.
