Center on Japanese Economy and Business, Columbia Business School

Established at Columbia Business School in 1986 under the direction of its chairman, Professor Hugh Patrick, the Center on Japanese Economy and Business (CJEB) promotes knowledge and understanding of Japanese business and economics in an international context. CJEB is a research organization widely recognized for its international symposia, conferences, and lectures held both in New York City and Tokyo, which provide prominent speakers from the public and private sectors a forum for collaboration and reflection on Japan, the United States, and the global economy.

Under the leadership of Professor David E. Weinstein, CJEB director, and Takatoshi Ito, CJEB's associate director of research, the Center supports research projects and library and computer-based resource initiatives. Other core faculty members are Japan specialists drawn from Columbia’s Business School, Law School, School of International and Public Affairs, Economics Department, and Department of Political Science. While CJEB is an independent and nonpartisan research center which takes an objective stance on political or economic policies, we encourage our researchers and scholars to hold their own individual perspectives. Funding and resources are provided by corporate sponsors, foundations, individuals, Columbia Business School, and the University.

For over 30 years, CJEB has developed, grown, and evolved in order to carry out its mission effectively in a changing Japan and a changing world. In this way, CJEB has been able to build and maintain its status as the preeminent academic center in the United States on Japanese business and economics.
