There are people who are good at conducting business without having any formal business education. However, I am in a belief that if someone is challenged to run a business, it is better to have prior formal business education. Having gone to business school in the USA in my early thirties, and my experience of work afterwards, convinced me of that.
The style of business education that I had gone through was very intense; students were assigned to read and analyze three cases a day. The course was designed to put a big load on students to make them overwhelmed and try to survive, thus reflecting the real world of business. However, we managed to complete approximately 700 cases in two years; each case representing actual business situations.
Case study is to seriously think from a business perspective and try coming up with logical solutions. It equipped me with enough samples and templates to face the real world of business. If I had not gone through the program, I might have been stubborn, sticking to my own thoughts and not being open to other ways of thinking.
So I concluded that e-Jan employees who possess a strong will and eagerness to learn business, should get opportunities to be educated. We can keep insisting the important aspects and mindsets of the business, but simultaneously we would like them to go through business education to be prepared with enough samples and templates to better tackle issues. Business is a science.
I'd like to announce our new Business Education Support system. We will sponsor one or two employees at e-Jan to attend educational institutions across the globe. Applicants must get board members' approval for their chosen course, and must meet the school's qualifications. If requirements accepted, the company will cover 90% of the tuition.
