At DBS I am heading a new focus area called Culture and Creativity. This covers cultural and creative industries – including manga and anime, music, video games, film and TV, visual arts, fashion, and cultural tourism – and the act and management of creativity itself. We will also look specifically at the business of Japanese pop culture, which is important not only economically but also as a source of “soft power” for Japan.
Please feel free to stop by my office to talk any time. And I invite you to take one or more of my courses. You will learn a lot about business and also have fun!
