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.
Students move from introductory classes to fundamentals and then application of the knowledge and skills they need to succeed as business people: business administration, marketing, and accounting.
Relationships with people from diverse cultural and social backgrounds are becoming increasingly important, even within the domestic business context. Through study in adjacent realms, students acquire a broad outlook that enables them to understand social diversity.
Students work to steadily improve the oral and written communication and interpersonal skills that they will need as businesspeople.
The Department’s practice-oriented classes are taught by lecturers who gained their doctoral degrees after careers as certified public accountants or in manufacturing, among other industries. To ensure an integrated understanding of theory and practice, students learn from professionals and experts currently active in various fields.
The faculty offers extracurricular courses to help students pass professional qualification examinations. The courses offered prepare students for the JCCI Bookkeeping 3rd and 2nd Grade, Financial Planning 3rd and 2nd Grade, and Secretarial Skills Test 2nd and pre-1st Grade examinations.
Aside from the support provided to all students by the university’s Career Center, students of the Department of Business Administration can take advantage of the Department’s own extracurricular guidance program. This program incorporates lectures by external speakers with experience of working for the personnel, hiring, and training departments of major corporations, as well as mock interviews and guidance in promoting oneself to prospective employers.
As a preliminary step toward the study of specialized subjects, students learn the basics of business administration, marketing, accounting, economics, and law.
Students focus on key subjects such as the principals of business administration, management organization theory, and marketing in small classes that emphasize active participation.
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 and consumer behavior. 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.
