Denscombe Corporation CEO, Nigel Denscombe


Waseda University School of Commerce

Executive Training Programme Japan

*Sponsored by the European Union




Since 2006, Denscombe Corporation has been strategically aligned with Waseda University, where our CEO has been important in designing and implementing an upgraded business school curriculum in the Executive Training Programme Japan. While this full-tine/intensive training programme sponsored by the EU had been highly regarded for its cultural and language immersion since its inception in 1979, this long-running course (over 1000 executives have graduated) was refocused and repositioned in 2006, with the intent of upgrading the management training side of the course to world class business school standards. Waseda University School of Commerce, having joined as the provider of the Japan side programme educator in 2006, retained Denscombe Corporation as the key strategic partner to both develop the necessary new management courses required and also deliver them as a lead instructor.

Denscombe Corporation has provided critical business education content and curricula in three key course areas: (1) Japan market-entry, (2) Business plan, and (3) Business plan mentoring to build Japan market  business plans for sponsoring EU companies. This alliance has resulted in Denscombe Corporation creating various original business content, like case studies and business skill development instruction manuals, as well as putting together turnkey whole course solutions such as “Business Plan” course (Sample course). Our contribution has been highly regarded and it is fair to say that the programme has been become much more professional and institutionalized in part because of the value added by our firm.

ROLE:  Denscombe Corporation was hired to help restructure the programme, build-up the content, and join the core instructor team.
