Department of Business Administration

Students acquire assured wisdom and the ability to act to create a new market as a business entity.

How do businesses interrelated with society and markets evolve? Business administration is a field of study for scientifically and theoretically explaining actual corporate activity and for proposing their ideal form. A step inside the generally-defined area of "business administration" takes you into the three areas of business administration, trade and marketing, and accounting. These three areas together support the sound development of businesses. In the Department of Business Administration, students receive a well-balanced education in these three areas and can acquire theoretical and practical skills for realizing "better management." During their third year of study, students select subjects from a vast array of courses based on their perceived future careers. In order to improve their professional skills, students who study accounting/finance, courses primarily based on the corporate perspective, will learn about accounting, the common language of business, and finance, which pertains to the procurement and management of funds. Moreover, students who study strategy/management, courses based on the perception of international markets, will analyze management data, devise strategies to solve issues that were raised as a result of conducting these analyses, and envisage management of an organization for putting these strategies into effect in order to enhance their professional skills.
