In order to cultivate internationally competitive human resources
The Graduate School of Business Administration offers two courses: a research course and a management course. For the research course, an essential goal is the cultivation of researchers who will advance to the doctoral program and teach at universities and other research institutions in the future. Another major purpose is to nurture professionals who are proficient in the business specialisms that are necessary for research activities at the R&D departments of private companies, to name just one example.
The management course has, in principle, a similar character to the research course. However, giving consideration to the differing needs of working adults, classes are held on Saturdays and weekday evenings. Students can take subjects that are relevant to their research and investigative activities, and they will aim to delve into the theories behind the knowledge they have acquired in the working world and to explore where that knowledge is positioned academically. Additionally, we offer an admissions program by recommendation from the Japan Federation of Labor and Social Security Attorney’s Associations for the management course, and have also established a labor management program.
From FY2011, we have started a double master’s program with the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM). Through this program, students who have completed the specified requirements while enrolled at the Graduate School of Business Administration will receive not only a degree in business administration from Meiji University, but also a master’s degree in management engineering from UTM.
In this way, the Graduate School of Business Administration is actively developing partnerships with universities in Asia and countries across the world, such as Britain, Australia, and the United States. At the same time, we are strengthening our educational programs in English and actively advancing the internationalization of the student and faculty body.
