    When deciding to complete an MBA, my goal was to eventually launch a new service using a new technology and make it profitable. Now I’m working to make drone delivery a reality at Rakuten, collaborating with a diverse set of partners inside and outside the company.

    After extensive experience in IT and earning an MBA, I wanted to make use of my skills yet still continue to grow. Rakuten has been the ideal company in which to do this, allowing me to create value through new technology and work towards exciting goals. Rakuten proves to be a great environment for MBA holders who are 'hungry' and striving to move forward.

CAREER TRACK

Realize Your Full Potential

I joined Rakuten as a Chief Executive Innovation Office (CEIO) member after completing my MBA in 2014. After joining, I presented an idea for a new service to Mickey. He liked the idea, and my first project got underway. After launching the service, I was given my second project and launched it in under a year. Then, I got transferred to Rakuten USA to develop new services in the U.S. Rakuten provides awesome opportunities that can help you achieve your own career goals based on your skillset and interests. I’m sure Rakuten is a top company for anyone who wants to learn, grow and become a global business leader.

Give It Your All and Lead

I graduated from the IESE Business School in 2017 after getting an MBA. I joined Rakuten as a principal in the Chief Executive Innovation Office, with a focus on Rakuten Group-level strategy and innovation. Then, I decided to give all of my attention to one area and started leading the strategy for the Global Sports Business. For MBAs, I believe the culture at Rakuten is a unique combination of startup and global conglomerate, and that creates a unique environment of systemic innovation. I look forward to continuing to create more value here at Rakuten.
