JASO will host Professor Christina Ahmadjian at a private, informal reception on Tuesday March 7th at the University Club, 1225 SW 6th Ave, Portland OR 97204. Check-in opens at 4:30pm, and the program begins at 5pm. Professor Ahmadjian is an expert in Japanese business practices, and in 2010 she became the first woman to be appointed the dean of a Japanese business school, at Hitotsubashi University.

After graduating from Harvard in 1981, Christina Ahmadjian moved to Japan to work for Mitsubishi Electric, where she was assigned the duties of an “office lady.”  She left Mitsubishi to earn an M.B.A. at Stanford and a Ph.D. in Organizational Behavior at Berkeley.  After an appointment at Columbia Business School, she returned to Japan to work for Shearson Lehman Brothers Tokyo, leaving business in 2001 to teach at the Graduate School of International Corporate Strategy at Hitotsubashi University.  In 2010 she became the dean of the school. 

Professor Ahmadjian is now a professor at Hitotsubashi University’s Graduate School of Commerce and Management, where her research interests include comparative corporate governance in East Asia and Japanese business and management. She’s again affiliated with the Mitsubishi group, but in a different capacity, as an outside director of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. Professor Ahmadjian will talk about her career and experience in Japan and her 30+ years of researching and observing Japanese business in action.

Light refreshments will be served.

We are limited to 20 total registrations, so sign up quickly. This is a free event.

The program is generously sponsored by Folawn Alterman & Richardson and JASO Board Member Dean Alterman.
