Faculty of Business and Commerce
We train future business leaders with dignity and flexibility, and who are able to respond to a broad range of demands in a drastically changing modern society.
Nurturing people who are capable of handling various business situations
Since its establishment, the Faculty of Business and Commerce has focused on cultivating people who can perform successfully in this era of globalization and information. The education policy of the faculty is based on the ideal of “practical learning.” In 2008, with the aim of training business leaders with accounting and English language skills, the Faculty of Business and Commerce introduced a curriculum in which its students study five fundamental business areas in their lower grades, and concentrate on specialized studies in their higher grades. In order to produce qualified human resources, the Faculty of Business and Commerce offers special programs such as “Business English Study Abroad (BestA)” featuring business English study and homestay program in the UK. Other programs include the practical small-group training for future international business leaders “Business Leader Special Program (BLSP)”, “Accounting Linkage Special Program (ALSP)” for those who aim to become a CPA and advanced accounting profession, and “Service Innovation Special Program (DSI)” to develop innovators who are capable of handling the latest information technology. New features of the Faculty’s curriculum involve learning at the actual business side, and study abroad to pursue practical business and commerce knowledge.
Moreover, the Faculty of Business and Commerce prepares various study opportunities to stimulate students’ motivation, and bring out their potential through operating and participating in events such as the KU Business Plan Competition (KUBIC), a nationwide event held by the Faculty of Business and Commerce in which high school and university students across Japan present business ideas. Students who pass the preliminary round make presentations at the final competition.
