Teaching students to identify and solve problems independently through small classes linking theory and practice

Students interested in a career in business administration study a systematic curriculum that balances the 3 fields of administration, marketing, and accounting. In order to train students to independently identify and solve problems, many classes in the Department emphasize building bridges between academic theory and corporate practice and engaging in small-group discussions. We encourage our students to aim high and strive to become business people of sound judgement who contribute to society through business.

The Four-Year Program

Year 1: Move from the basics toward specialized topics in small introductory classes

As a preliminary step toward the study of specialized subjects, students learn the basics of business administration, marketing, accounting, economics, and law.

Year 2: Master the three core areas through interactive classes

Students focus on key subjects such as the principals of business administration, management organization theory, marketing, and financial accounting in small classes that emphasize active participation.

Years 3 and 4: Systematically deepen knowledge while writing a graduation thesis in a small group seminar

In seminars of approximately ten people, students delve into a specialized subject and work toward completing their graduation thesis (optional). They also take courses in advanced applied subjects such as business management theory, consumer behavior, and financial accounting. Drawing on this incrementally accumulated, systematic knowledge, as well as on their ability to identify and analyze problems and express themselves, students decide on a career path at an early stage in their fourth year.
