Admission Policy of the Department of Business and Technology Management (Business School)
Based on leading business knowledge and advanced administrative abilities, this department trains business professionals to pioneer a new era of industry by proactively shouldering global expansion in industry and business and demonstrating management skills that coordinate technology and business.
Our curriculum consists of subjects that foster in our students the knowledge and abilities required by business professionals. This is in accordance with Article 2 of the Professional Degree Program Establishment Standards, which states that, “The aim of a professional degree program lies in the development of a solid academic background and outstanding abilities required in professions demanding high-end expertise.” Those who complete our program will be “international business professionals with an understanding of business administration and industrial technology to fulfill our goal of fostering business in Asia.” In addition to covering the foundational elements of an MBA (required subjects in “the MBA basics”), our curriculum addresses five main fields of study: “resources and organization management”, “market and strategic management”, “accounting and financial management”, “Asia-related management”, and “management of technologies (MOT)”. We have a systematic program based on a philosophy of “business based on learning” and “learning based on business,” through which students develop as scholars with superior competencies to fulfill their duties in society as consummate business leaders requiring a high degree of professionalism.
We seek businesspersons who are driven by a pioneering spirit, leverage in business, and an intense eagerness to obtain a working knowledge of business. Our aim is to produce business professionals who can play a leading role in the global development of enterprise and contribute to the creation of industrial societies in this new era, which need their state-of-the-art knowledge, skills in advanced industrial technology, and outstanding administrative abilities. In addition to Japanese individuals with a variety of work backgrounds, we also accept a certain number of non-Japanese students, as well as those continuing studies directly from an undergraduate program without any significant work experience but with the belief that intellectual exchanges will give rise to new and valuable knowledge. This policy will encourage Asian-oriented international talent and provide those without any work experience with an opportunity to learn practical business knowledge and develop a managerial sense through interaction with students who possess sufficient working experience.
An emphasis is placed on the application materials and an interview to ensure fairness and transparency in the selection process.
We have two types of entrance examinations: general and special.
The general entrance examination targets businesspersons in companies or public offices with at least two years’ service at the time of application, as well as graduate and undergraduate students. The first stage of selection depends on the application materials, which are evaluated to assess learning abilities, motivations, and future aspirations of prospective students. The second step is an interview conducted in Japanese focusing on endowments, future goals, motivation, and language ability (if an examinee is non-Japanese). In addition, those applicants who do not submit the certificate of English proficiency are required to take an English placement test. For educational purposes, we take into consideration the benefits of a diverse and international student body, as well as individual competencies, in the selection process.
In the special entrance examination, we aim to create new business value through an awareness of issues related to innovation and grapple with expert knowledge of management of technology (MOT) and business in Asia while deepening our concept of value creation. We are focused on recruiting students who intend to put these concepts into practice. The special selection is determined by a document review (study plan and thesis), and an interview in Japanese.
