It is being said that Japanese firms need to internationalize their workforce. One of the ways to attain this goal is allowing Japanese employees to join international assignment programs. Most of the time, such career opportunities are to be offered to senior management.

Shiraki Mitsuhide – Professor at Waseda
Professor Mitsuhide Shiraki (Ph.D., Waseda University) has been researching the effects of international career opportunities for Japanese assignees at an early stage of their careers. The results have been unexpectedly encouraging. How eager are the Japanese Millenials to take an assignment abroad? What can be the positive effects on the assignee and its company?

Mitsuhide Shiraki, Ph.D. received his doctoral degree in Economics from the Graduate School of Economics of Waseda University. He became Professor of the Faculty of Political Science and Economics at Waseda University in April 1999 after serving as Associate Professor and Professor at Kokushikan University for 14 years His specialization includes labor economics, social policy, and human resources management (HRM). He has authored, edited, co-authored, and co-edited several HR-related books and publications with particular emphasis on international or transnational HRM, and the role of Japanese expatriates in multinational corporations.

Currently teaching at Waseda University in the Faculty of Political Science and Economics, he also serves as the President of the institute for transnational HRM in Japan and President of Japan Academy of International Business Studies.
