Membership

Add to the development of Global Business Professionals: Join us!

Please join us in the development of global business professionals needed for the rapidly globalizing economy. The Society of Global Business (SGB) welcomes membership from business and academic professionals, as well as university students.

SGB works to foster collaboration between business and academic worlds by providing a forum where both can freely collaborate, and exchange challenges, ideas, and results of academic research. Through our combined efforts, we can positively improve the domestic economy and also Japan’s effectiveness in the broader global economy. As a global society, SGB also seeks to actively network with similar societies in countries throughout the world.

SGB carries out its mission through various activities, such as publications of a global business journal, meetings, lectures, research, and the holding of an annual convention and symposium in March of each year under a global business theme.

At a time of rapid and profound global change the need for this kind of collaboration is vital. Adding your voice and energy to help foster the next generation of global business professionals can make all the difference for yourself and for the world.
