Characteristics of the MBS curriculum

Enabling flexibility according to the purpose of each individual

(1) Compulsory Courses Group and (2) Common Courses Group

The compulsory courses group and the common courses group are established to learn primary knowledge and skills for corporate management and occupational fields from a wider perspective without being fixed on expertise in a limited scope of areas.
It is possible to learn not only primary knowledge required in taking special courses, but also quantitative, systematic, and behavioral analytical methods by taking compulsory courses and others. To foster business professionals with extensive knowledge, we requires students to complete five compulsory courses (10 credits) by the time they finish the programme. We also offer the compulsory courses below in medium of English so that we are able to provide our students with more opportunities to learn theoretical courses in English.

-Fundamentals of Financial Finance
-Fundamentals of Management
-Fundamentals of Accounting
-Fundamentals of Marketing
-Global Business Studies


(3) Special Courses Group

The special courses group is set to learn new knowledge and skills necessary for future corporate management and operations, as well as to advance specialized knowledge and skills in 5 fields. In courses of practical learnings and case studies, students develop professional insight in a specialized field while cultivating abilities to identify and solve problems through group discussions and tutorials. We also offer around 60 courses in medium of English so that we value enhancing English proficiency in business scene.

(4) Thesis Tutorial (Seminar)

Students are required to pass a master’s thesis for the MBA degree. They write their theses under supervision by our professors in courses named “Thesis Tutorial” in their third and fourth semester. Such a thesis is not limited to research papers from an academic standpoint, and various forms are allowed, including “creation of future business models” and “case analyses on problems in industries and workplaces”. With the thesis tutorial, not only thesis-writing skills but also the critical thinking and analytical abilities are improved through in-depth discussions and tutorials on an issue of each student’s interest.

Now, we have started two clusters: “family business” and “start-up business.” These are mechanisms intended to offer a place where any researchers, our students and alumni who are interested in these fields can discuss in a comprehensive manner without being fixed on a narrow expertise of course.
