Department of Business Administration

The next generation of business begins here

The university has produced large numbers of businesspeople and business managers. The faculty is an ideal choice for individuals who want to work at the forefront of a company’s management operations in the future, who have an interest in marketing, who want to learn about information technology, or want to work for an international company.

Curriculum Features

Providing the business leaders of tomorrow with the wide range of skills they need

The faculty’s key objective lies in producing a new generation of business leaders who can function within today’s volatile business world. We provide our students with the business acumen they need, whether it may be to optimally utilize a company’s managerial resources, to recognize products with the potential to sell, or to devise strategy that will lead to a product flying off the shelves. From the second year, students may choose from one of four course options, each suited to different areas of specialization.

A faculty that recognizes the importance of experience-based practical training

As a faculty, we are highly aware of the importance of real, hands-on experience in business. Such experience is highly valued by employers. Every year, a large number of students in the faculty take part in our internship program, which gives them the opportunity to learn about the internal workings of a company, and what a job in business involves. We also run an annual public speaking competition, in which students have the chance to put their presentation skills to the test.

English skills for a career in global business

Over the course of their four years, students develop the English skills they need for a career in global business. Students study in preparation for the TOEIC exam in level-appropriate classes, steadily progressing from one stage of fluency to the next. In the Foreign Book Reading course, students work through English language textbooks on business administration that are widely read in the United States. This process not only helps students to understand their field through the English language, but also equips them with new perspectives on it too.
