Over a period of approximately six months, students will begin with numerical analysis and market research regarding Musashikosugi Tokyu Square, and will examine the need for proposed tenants and future development through on-site visits. The students each drew up a plan, focusing on the real perspective of the number of customers and the average spend per customer, rather than just theoretical theories about what kind of MD the facility was lacking and what types of businesses would be needed in the future. The students then directly gave presentations in a tense atmosphere, with the manager and MD of Tokyu Malls Development Musashikosugi Tokyu Square as guests. Tokyu Malls Development listened carefully to the students’ suggestions and provided feedback on each plan.

“When I looked at SC while thinking about leasing, my perspective changed drastically.”
“It was interesting to see that there were so many things I couldn’t understand just by researching on the internet.”
“It was interesting to multiply the SC’s income and expenditure with the tenant’s income and expenditure.”
“I was really nervous because I had to make a proposal directly to a professional and then receive further feedback.”
■Comment from Tokyu Malls Development
“I was inspired by the perspectives and ideas that come from being a student.” “Interacting with students has stimulated me both as a company and as an individual in many ways.”
■About future classes (comment from instructor/Ishibashi)
Thanks to valuable cooperation with Tokyu Malls Development, this special class was able to provide students with practical experience in the management and leasing of commercial facilities. The students were delighted to receive direct feedback from industry professionals, gain a new perspective on commercial facility leasing, and gain interest in the business of leasing. This leasing class will also enter its 5th anniversary in 2024. In the future, we would like to provide new value by creating points of contact between students and developers who operate commercial facilities, who normally do not have contact with each other. Our mission is to create an exciting world through commercial spaces, and we will continue to grow together with our students through various lectures and classes.
