Special Seminar 1: Collaboration with a company: “Making a presentation for planning and development”

This seminar gives students firsthand experience of work that meets real-world criteria. We invite a guest speaker from 7-Eleven, who is in charge of planning and development of salad and selling 500,000 packages of the product, worth 100 million yen, in a single day. At the end of the seminar, students are expected to make presentations of their ideas of how to make the newly developed product “a little better” to the person in charge.
