In the 2011 Spring Term, Graduate School of International Management (GSIM) at the International University of Japan (IUJ) will offer a course to introduce developing business applications (Apps) for smart phones based on iPhone/iPad Operating System.
Commenting on this course, Dean Philip Sugai said “This course is another great opportunity for our business school to provide our students with the most up to date and forward thinking skills for new business challenges, and as far as our research can uncover, we are the first business school in Japan to do so.”
The course titled “Business Apps with iPhone/iPad/iPod” will be listed under the E-Business Management Program. A new lab has been set up now with Apple machines with WiFi capabilities inside the E-Lab. The course with practical lab environment will be taught by Prof. Jay Rajasekera and Dr. Zaw Zaw Aung. IUJ joins such prominent schools as Stanford University in the US to offer this kind of course in a business school curriculum. Response to this new course is very positive, with the registration already exceeding the capacity as of March 1.
