[2014-06-17] DUJAT VU seminar – June 17, 2014



DUJAT/VU Seminar

– Cross Cultural management processes with focus on decision-making procedures –

June 17th 2014, 15.00-18.00 at VU (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam)

As a promoter of the Dutch – Japanese economic and business relations, we organize every year a cross-cultural seminar for our DUJAT members, this year in cooperation with Vrije Universiteit of Amsterdam, Faculty of Social Sciences; Department of Organization Sciences.


This year’s theme is “decision making in Japanese companies”, an important topic for all of us. We have approached for you a series of interesting speakers, who have been and are still dealing with this subject, as representative for a Japanese company, as a researcher on the subject and as lawyer with hands-on experience.


So my advice on this beautiful sunny day is: register as soon as possible as it will be a very interesting afternoon!!
