Nagasaki University said Saturday top officials from a wide range of sectors will give a series of lectures on management strategy starting in the fall.

The 15 lectures will be held every Wednesday from October to January as part of a program organized by the university’s economics faculty.

Special instructors are to include Toshiba Corp. President Tadashi Okamura, All Nippon Airways President Yoji Ohashi and Nagasaki Gov. Genjiro Kaneko.

Top officials from media organizations will also be among the speakers, according to the Nagasaki-based university. The lectures will be open free of charge to students and the general public.

The university has organized the lecture series to mark the 2005 100th anniversary of the foundation of its economic faculty.

Asahi Breweries Ltd. Chairman Shigeo Fukuchi, an alumnus of Niigata University, took the initiative in establishing the seminar, the university said.

“I want the seminar to help leave something valuable in students’ minds, rather than just something visible, by having lecturers freely express their philosophies and views,” Fukuchi told a news conference.
