What is AJBS?
The Association of Japanese Business Studies (AJBS) is an international association of professionals actively pursuing the exchange of information and ideas concerning the Japanese business system and its economic, social and cultural environment.  Membership includes academic scholars doing research and teaching related to Japan, as well as government and business executives interested in those issues.
 
Objectives of the Organization
            *To provide greater understanding of the Japanese business system
            *To advance the study of Japanese business as a comparative and integrated field of study
            *To foster high quality, original research
            *To facilitate the dissemination of information about the Japanese business system
 
Annual Meetings
Members meet each summer in an intimate conference setting before the larger Academy of International Business meetings.  The conferences are set back-to-back, with AIB lending much valued support that enables AJBS to continue its conference at a reasonable cost.  The proceedings of the conference are available as a PDF download (free for conference attendees and current members) or available for purchase through the website.
