Small Size for Strength

The Graduate School of Business Administration


Companies today need to innovate continuously across all aspects of their organization—including systems, products, facilities and activities—to respond to major societal transformations. To research the state of business economics in anticipation of these changes, multi-faceted understanding and analysis are necessary for both micro issues (for example, providing incentives for employee self-fulfillment) and macro issues (such as corporate contributions to society). Keenly aware of the permeable and interdependent relationship between theory and realization, the Graduate School of Business Administration educates researchers and professionals with advanced expertise based on three distinct pillars. The first, “Interdisciplinization,” expands on the traditional framework of management research. Secondly, “Globalization” provides an understanding of Japanese economics from a global perspective with the additional goal of international exchange. The third pillar, “Informatization,” directly links trends in information and communication technology to the field of management research.

Since the foundation of the master’s program in 1978, the Graduate School of Business Administration has successfully produced several generations of business researchers and leading professionals with advanced expertise. Among the specialist courses available at universities today, the Graduate School of Business Administration maintains an advanced academic research level through small class sizes that focus on experience to deepen students’ academic proficiency.
