Department of Accounting
Our society is undergoing radical transformations, many of which involve information communications technologies and equipment, such as the Internet and mobile phones, the rapidly decreasing number of children, the aging society, women’s changing status, further accelerating motorization, the globalization of corporate activities and consumption, the alleviation of government regulations and the decentralization of authorities. Finance, marketing and accounting are also changing greatly. The School of Commerce sees possibilities in an age of great transition and is committed to producing students with the practical capabilities to explore new opportunities.
In April 2006, the 40-year-old Department of Commerce, which had a history of producing students who made significant contributions to society, changed its name to the Department of Marketing. In this department, students take one of four specialty courses starting in the latter half of their second year that focus on their future career.
In the Marketing Course, students learn the basics of marketing, real corporate activities and logistics systems. They research a wide range of issues including ways to provide merchandise and services, the use of the Internet, environmental problems and the vitalization of local malls.
In the Finance Course, students learn about “cash flow” from a life perspective relative to finance, securities and insurance. They learn practical financial theories focusing on real financial businesses.
In the Global Business Course, students learn about current businesses in the global environment from administrative, industrial and trading viewpoints. The course produces students can play active and leading roles in a modern society in which global businesses are important.
The Business Intelligence Course creates businesspeople who can make the most appropriate judgments even when faced with unforeseen problems in the radically changing modern business environment. It also encourages career development including qualifying exam preparation. The flexible curriculum allows for easy preparation for exams to study abroad or attend graduate school.
Accounting is a means to express and convey various corporate activities and plays an important role in supporting corporate management. In the continuing internationalization of accounting standards, accounting professionals are increasingly highly recognized in industry. To address such a need, the Department of Accounting produces students who can play important roles in the business world with a fully comprehensive program, both in terms of quality and quantity.
In order to deepen their understanding of corporate management, students in the evening division can pursue studies in a variety of subjects including commercial science, business economics, bookkeeping, accounting, information science and many others.
