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.
Our practice-oriented classes are taught by professors who attained PhDs after working as certified public accountants or at financial institutions, manufacturing companies, or other business settings.
1st- and 2nd-year students participate in small workshops aimed at developing academic literacy and analytical and communication skills.
To guide students toward an understanding of how theory and corporate practice relate, the Department invites a diverse range of scholars and practitioners active in their fields to deliver talks.
Participants spend 3 years as undergraduates and 2 years as graduate students.
Students in the Department of Business Administration receive job offers from companies in a wide range of industries, including finance and manufacturing.
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, business organization, and marketing in small classes that emphasize active participation.
In seminars of approximately 10 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 principles of management 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 4th year.
Corporations seek out our students because they’ve completed a balanced curriculum in business administration, marketing, and accounting, and as a result, students find employment in a wide range of industries every year. Jobs in the financial, service, manufacturing, and distribution sectors are particularly common. Recently, more liberal arts students are gaining proficiency in computer-related skills, and as a result an increasing number of our graduates are going to work in the information and communication and computer industries. Others become civil servants at the national or local level, join police departments, or take jobs in similar fields.
