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.

Business Administration

Key Features of the Department of Business Administration

Point 01
The international perspective needed to succeed in the globalized world of economics and business

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.

Point 02
A focus on communication skills

Students work to steadily improve the oral and written communication and interpersonal skills that they will need as businesspeople.

Point 03
Courses to assist in preparing for professional qualification examinations

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.

Point 04
Support measures unique to the department and workshops to assist in finding employment

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.

Point 05
Practical classes taught by faculty with real-world business experience

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.

  • A businessperson’s perspective
    Students will speak with managers at advertising firms and think tanks about the creative work processes they undertake in their companies and the knowledge and skills they need to do so.
  • A business owner’s perspective
    Smoothly passing on a business is a major issue for its owner. We will address various issues hindering generational changes in business ownership, such as lack of successors and the tax burden that ownership transfer incurs, and consider countermeasures.
  • A nonprofit perspective
    Not all cultural facilities having a highly public nature, such as museums and art galleries, are publicly operated. We will therefore consider stage theater management in operations as a private enterprise.
  • An investor’s perspective
    Executives from securities firms and others in the field will give lectures on the principles of investment behavior, particularly in the stock market, and provide perspectives on evaluating corporate activities from an investor’s point of view.

Program Structure

After building a solid foundation in the business administration, marketing, accounting, economics and law in their first years, students focus on key subjects in small classes that emphasize active participation in their second year. From the third year, students delve into a specialized subject in seminars of approximately ten people, and take courses in advanced applied subjects.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.


Managerial Accounting

Management accounting is responsible for providing business managers with information they need to run their companies. By analyzing financial information, students will identify problems and suggest ways to make management decisions that solve problems. We will also cover performance measurement issues for planning and management.

Marketing Research

We use knowledge of consumer behavior and data collection and analysis skills to solve a variety of marketing problems, including new product development and promotional activities.


Through dialogue with classmates, senior students, and faculty members, students will consider their university learning and develop a vision for their university life. We also aim to raise students’ overall level of communications, by improving presentation skills and cultivating views of society from broader perspectives.
