Students who aim to become involved with business administration in the future study the three fields of business, administration, marketing, and accounting in a balanced and systematic manner. The Department has a full range of classes that particularly value building bridges between academic theory and corporate practice and engaging in small-group discussions, in order to train students who are capable of identifying and solving problems. The Department hopes that entering students have a high level of motivation and an aim to become discerning businesspeople that contribute to society.
Students acquire the knowledge and skills in the three, indispensable fields that are needed to contribute in the business world at introduction, foundation, and application levels.
Practical classes are conducted by full-time faculty members that obtained their doctorates after gaining practical experience at accounting firms, financial institutions, and manufacturers.
In their first and second year, students take part in small group workshops.
Students learn how to analyze and express their thoughts to develop academic literacy.
Students can listen to and ask questions of business specialists in order to piece together and understand the connections between theory and practice.
Many students have been hired by private enterprises in all industries, including finance and manufacturing.
Students study introductory subjects relating to business administration, marketing, and accounting, as well as the foundations of economics and law, as a lead-up to the study of more specialized subjects.
Students study core subjects, including “Principles of Business Administration,” “Management Organization Theory,” and “Marketing,” which form the basis of more specialized subjects in small group interactive classes.
In seminars of approximately ten people, students engage in intensive study of their specialized field and work towards their graduation thesis. In addition, students study highly specialized applied subjects, such as “Management Theory and Consumer Behavior.” Students determine a post-study career path early in their fourth year, making use of the systematic knowledge, the ability to identify and analyze problems, and how to express their ideas that they develop throughout their study.
Each year, graduates go on to find work in a variety of industries, with a high corporate demand for students that have received a well-balanced, grounded education in business administration, marketing, and accounting. Another feature of the Department of Business Administration is the comparatively high proportion of graduates that go on to work in industries such as finance, service, manufacturing, and distribution. Recently, even humanities departments are producing an increasing number of students that are proficient in computers, and as a result, there is an increasing number of graduates, who find work in the information and communication industry and the computer industry. In addition, there are graduates that end up becoming national government employees, local government employees, or who even work in the police department.
