Japan: From semi-sovereignty to splendid isolation? - 21h ago

"The Japanese are beginning to realize that being fully sovereign means dealing with headaches that someone else had to take prime responsibility for over 70 years. And the biggest challenge of all, they are beginning to realize, is, with the US under Trump slouching towards isolationism, what will happen to Washington's principal ally in Asia? Will it be reduced to an isolated offshore state in the post post-World War II Asian order?"
After the Duterte surprise came the Trump shock. To Tokyo, old certainties that underpinned the post-World War II order were suddenly melting, and rapidly.

Story
Tagline
HBS, Stanford, Wharton admissions expert since 2002. Director, Agos Consulting. AIGAC President
Introduction
I have been a full-time international graduate admissions consultant since 2002. Based in Tokyo, Japan, I help clients around the world. In 2007, I launched VincePrep because I wanted to help the best candidates aiming for the top schools. To share my insights with a talented team, I rejoined Agos as Consulting Director in 2014. Now, I lead 10 professionals who deliver Japan’s best graduate admissions results. I also serve as Board President of The Association of International Graduate Admissions Consultants (AIGAC). Given my ongoing professional and personal commitments, I accept very few clients. Usually, I refer prospects to one of my highly-experienced and successful colleagues. If interested, please complete this intake form. Please note that initial consultations are not offered for interview training and second opinion services. Meanwhile, please explore my YouTube channel, and be sure to subscribe for the latest updates.

  • The Association of International Graduate Admissions Consultants (AIGAC)
    Board Director , 2013 - present
    The Association of International Graduate Admissions Consultants (AIGAC) promotes high ethical standards and professional development amongst graduate admissions consultants, increases public understanding of graduate admissions consulting, and enhances communication with complementary organizations and entities. Our membership is comprised of over 130 representatives from 16 countries, including the Brazil, Canada, China, Columbia, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Israel, Japan, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Taiwan, Ukraine and the United States. Inspired by the collaborative spirit and camaraderie of the consultants who attended Tuck School of Business’s Conferences for International Educational Consultants in 2005 and 2006, Linda Abraham of Accepted.com and Ricardo Betti of MBA Empresarial (Brazil) joined with Graham Richmond of Clear Admit and Maxx Duffy of Maxx Associates to form a not-for-profit association to set industry standards for graduate admissions consultants. In November 2006, AIGAC was officially incorporated in the State of California.
