Message

Nagasawa's Project Research Seminar at Waseda Business School, Waseda University takes, as research objectives, "Design and Innovation Management" of companies such as European luxury brands and Japanese long-standing companies (Shinise).
It applies the theories of the luxury strategy, experiential marketing, design management, innovation management, etc. and has carried out useful research for the real business world.
The research results have been highly valued both nationally and internationally and have led to the opening of the course 'Luxury Branding Chair Module' donated by LVMH Moët Hennessy. Louis Vuitton since 2012, which highly focuses on luxury branding. This is the first course in Japan and only the second in the world.
Compared to Europe and America, luxury business research in Japan, and research on business for the wealthy classes, have not been active and sufficient in quantity and quality. And business persons in the fields have rarely had the chance to study related facts and theories systematically.
All the seminarists are business persons and experienced persons of business matters and they manage to work at business practices and research at the seminar.
Usually the seminar is conducted through discussions. The seminarist in charge proposes the discussion theme together with his/her research question and all the seminarists discuss on the theme. Though the number of seminarists is somewhat below average, OB/OG or guest sometimes attends the seminar and the seminar is doing a flourishing research and always crowded with participants. The biggest characteristic of the seminar is to enjoy pleasant and sharp discussions.
There are two educational philosophies in Nagasawa Seminar; one is “to have an originality,” and the other is “to obtain dazzling results.” They are essential and important requirements and the seminalists are required to satisfy these necessary requirements. In spite of severe requirements the seminalists can keep their motivations in high level, which lead a lot of results.

Students’ Voices

  • Commerce Track “Doctorate Program”
  • Mr. Yusuke Irisawa
  • 2010 Admission
  • Marketing & International Business major

My current research theme is product design management for creation of innovative products and services. This is not limited only to visual design, but also covers a wide range of content: designing processes for new product creation; designing value that engages the senses (Kansei); and designing brands to differentiate from competitors. Along with European luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton and Chanel, I am investigating the traditions and innovations of long-established companies in Kyoto, such as Tawaraya and Suetomi.

As a working graduate student, I am currently involved with new business planning in the IT field. Often people ask, “Isn’t it completely unrelated to what you are studying?” Business planning, however, is a rather unrefined field, and it’s very important to have the background to generate new ideas. In that sense, my studies are having a very positive impact on my work. In particular, the perspective of Kansei value is a very important component of new IT businesses: so in fact, I am applying my academic knowledge in my daily business practice.

  • MBA Graduate in 2012
  • Beauty Editor, Deputy Editor-in-Chief “Harper’s BAZAAR”

While in school I studied luxury brands under Professor Shin’ya Nagasawa in the MOT program. You may be wondering why I chose MOT to learn about brand theory. It’s because I wanted to research luxury as a strategy from the standpoint of cosmetic products, and because luxury brands are one of Professor Nagasawa’s research themes.

As a beauty editor for women’s magazine, I have seen the transition of many cosmetic brands. Through this program, I feel that I can delve deeper into the strengths and weakness of brands and companies and the logic behind their actions from a new perspective. I’ve also appreciated the opportunity to learn about other firms that I wouldn’t have had access to in my daily work. Consequently, I now can recognize the characteristics and position of the cosmetic industry in relation to others.

There are many editors and journalists who specialize in the beauty industry, but I hope to apply the knowledge gained through this program and speak from a new and differing perspective. I would like to contribute to the development of the cosmetic industry and empower Japanese women to become even more beautiful.
