Department of Commerce

Fostering business persons needed in this age of "glocalization" of the economic society
       "Glocalization" is a newly-coined term combining the two words "globalization" and "localization." It indicates the concept of global activity with consideration of local characteristics. In recent years, corporate society has been demanding that corporations conduct business in various parts of the world while focusing on local characteristics and traits, and to maintain the competitive edge in any business, human resources that can flexibly handle such an age of "glocalization" are essential.
       The curriculum of the Faculty of Commerce aims to cultivate business persons who can survive such changing times. The main characteristics of the Department of Commerce are its division into the Commerce Course and the Accounting Course, and implementation of Major and Minor concentrates. During the freshman year, students study a variety of introductory subjects to prepare for their selection of majors and minors, and in the sophomore year, they choose a course and take classes pertaining to that course of choice. Another characteristic of the Department of Commerce is the small-classroom education available during all four years of University education. Small-classroom education is conducted in the Basic Seminar during the freshman year, Business Foreign Language during the first semester of the sophomore year, and the Seminar from the second semester of the sophomore year to the senior year.
