The future for the Future of Japanese Business (Nyu) lies in the rise of new technology, the globalization of markets, and of course the experience and creativity of young entrepreneurs. The new Japanese firms will need skills not only of experienced managers but also of young students who have just come out of university with few years of practical work experience. The corporate world is already teeming with young people who are ambitious and ready to take on challenging challenges. In many ways, this is already happening.
The Japanese Government is also very much behind the rise of a new generation of entrepreneurial youth. The small and medium sized businesses in Japan have a significant role to play in the economic revival of their country. In the past two decades, many young people started their own venture capital firms, and many more established their own companies. The future of Japan itself lies therefore in the hands of the young entrepreneurs who are well-educated and skillful.
There are numerous reasons why young people are attracted to start up their own companies. One is that they can use their skills to earn decent salaries in a short period of time and with flexible working hours. Moreover, part-time jobs at reputable consultancies offer attractive compensation packages and other benefits.
New comers in the corporate world can enhance their skills, enhance their chances for better professional careers, and can make valuable contacts. They can also learn valuable lessons on how to run a company successfully. Moreover, they can acquire valuable managerial, financial, and marketing skills that can be used later in their life. A good number of successful corporate leaders started out as consultants or worked at consultancies.
For those who want to pursue higher education but still work while being employed by a firm, they can take up the University Teaching Young Profession (TYPT) course which offers flexible learning options like evening classes and weekend college courses. This will enable them to continue working while gaining valuable managerial, interpersonal, and leadership skills. The TYPT course enables aspiring university professionals to become eligible to sit for the university teaching degree in two years time. Upon completion of the program, successful graduates can take the Certified Teaching English as a Second Language (CELTA) examination that will enable them to sit for the certification exam for English as a Second Language (EFL) upon completion of the graduation. This test will also open up many career opportunities.
However, prospective learners have to take a step back and consider if the whole concept of having to work while studying is really feasible. They should look into alternatives like taking up an online course. The only disadvantage of this is that it takes up a lot of time to complete. It may also require a considerable amount of research since one needs to take into consideration the different universities offering the course. It can also be very costly depending on the distance, location, and class size.
