Associate Professor / SUZUKI Nobutaka
Dr. Suzuki's research interests include business strategy, technology management, and manufacturing management. Even when he is busy, he always makes time for students and provides appropriate support.

Research Content

Developing new markets by entering new emerging countries, increaseing profits by developing and marketing new products, improving productivity by continuing to improve production sites, these are all related to management and are examples of themes covered in the management strategy, technology management and manufacturing management,in that order. Dr. Suzuki has been conducting empirical research on the management in Japan and overseas. We, the students, decide our own research themes in consultation with the professor and proceed with research from both theoretical and empirical perspectives by examining previous studies, conducting field surveys and conducting statistical analysis.
