Faculty of Business Administration

Producing human resources who will take the lead in the volatile business environment, through the synergy of the Department of Business Administration with the Department of Accounting and Finance

In 1947, Aichi University became the first university in the Tokai region to inaugurate courses on business administration and accountancy. Subsequently in 1963, the university established the Department of Business Administration in the Law and Economics Faculty at that time. In 1989, the department became independent of the faculty, and was converted into the Faculty of Business Administration. Furthermore, since 2005, the faculty has adopted a two-department system consisting of the Department of Business Administration and the Department of Accounting and Finance as we see today, in order to impart further specialized knowledge to students. Although the faculty is divided into two departments, business administration and accounting are mutually supplementary. As such, the Department of Business Administration and the Department of Accounting and Finance work in conjunction with each other, just like a pair of wheels on a vehicle. For the pair of “wheels” to fulfill their roles, they need an “axle” to connect them. For this reason, the new curriculum due to begin in academic year 2018 will feature common undergraduate subjects that serve as an “axle” connecting the two departments. These common subjects will further strengthen the close coordination between the two departments. Another new attempt is the establishment of the Business Design course in the Department of Accounting and Finance. In this new course, students can study both business administration and accountancy, by such means as exploring ideal business management based on accounting data. The Department of Accounting and Finance of Aichi University will continue to engage in active and bold initiatives. It aims to train students into a business elite equipped with a broad perspective and extensive general knowledge, so they can appropriately handle various issues facing today’s volatile business world, based on the specialized knowledge they have cultivated through our systematic curriculum.
