What is MCJ?

01. What is Marketing Competition Japan?


 An English-language presentation contest planned and conducted by the students and faculty of Kobe City University of Foreign Studies.

This year marks the 10th time that the contest has been held since its inception in 2011.

Based on the presentation theme provided by sponsors and local governments, participants will compete in a presentation of a specific marketing plan for that theme in English. 

We aim to improve analytical, creative, planning, and English presentation skills of students.

In addition to these educational benefits, we also aim to contribute to the local economy and society by having students work practically on solving real-world society problems.
