Syllabus of the Department of Business Administration

Class Introduction

General Business Administration
We think that few people have studied business administration as an academic discipline until high school. Therefore, some people may think that business administration is a academic discipline for earning money or for business owners. Such view is both right and wrong. Of course, business administration can be used to earn money and help managers. However, the real business administration is what does not fit in that framework. Modern business administration is used not only for for-profit business management, but also for the management of various business such as medical and school. In addition, it is a useful academic discipline for various people not only for company managements. In the general business administration course, we explain the basic terms of business administration, focusing on management, organization, and strategy in an easy-to-understand manner.

Risk and insurance
The area of this course covers not only management risk but also financial, legal, natural disaster, operational risk, and so on, ranging from social science to natural science. Therefore, it can be said that it is the best subject to learn the grand design of academics. Corporate management means taking risks, and managers are required to measure risks and manage them appropriately. At the same time, a company cannot survive without pursuing returns commensurate with risks. In this course, students understand the basic matters common to a wide variety of insurance fields such as non-life insurance, life insurance, and social insurance, which are risk underwriters firstly. Next, they learn about the management structure and characteristics of an insurance company that is an insurance supplier. Furthermore, they learn "total risk management of corporate management" that is actually practiced as a method of dealing with risks surrounding companies. Through this course, we would like to think together with students about management methods based on Practical learning.

Bookkeeping principle
In this course, students learn about double-entry bookkeeping, which is used to record corporate activities. We think that many students will be exposed to bookkeeping for the first time at university, in the bookkeeping principle, students will learn the basic idea of double-entry bookkeeping on the assumption that they learn about bookkeeping for the first time, in the first semester. In the second semester, based on the basic concept of double-entry bookkeeping learned in the first semester, students will learn about each specific bookkeeping process while being aware of the connection with accounting. In addition, there are several certification exams in bookkeeping. One of the attractions of learning bookkeeping is that it is directly linked to the qualifications of bookkeeping. Of course, obtaining the certification is not an end in itself, but it is a good opportunity to test their skills acquired through their learning, so we recommend that students take the certification exam. In this class, we solve past questions of the bookkeeping examination, and learn for getting certificate.

American sports management
American football, baseball, basketball, and ice hockey are extremely popular in the United States. In addition to its performance and entertainment, they also lead the American economy as a professional sports business. In this course, we will explain their history, management philosophy, business model and strategy, and learn the basic knowledge of American sports management, focusing on the NFL, MLB, NBA, and NHL, which are the professional leagues of these four major sports. The U.S. sports market is still growing in the changing of times and market. We will learn the world's best sports business model while comparing and verifying with Japan's sports environment, such as sports performance that will continue to improve and the franchise system rooted in the region. In addition, we will hold a business inspection training tour in the United States, aiming to develop human resources who will lead the next generation by experiencing the authentic professional sports business and the breadth of the sports industry.

"Make a profit in response to your needs." Philip Kotler, who is well-known marketing researcher, describes the essence of marketing in this way. Marketing is often associated with market research and sales promotion, but all activities to create value for customers and meet their needs can be said to be marketing. In this course, we explain various issues and frameworks related to marketing with examples of companies. In addition, we may present case-based marketing issues and ask students to give their opinions. For example, in the session on price, we took up the case of price changes of beef bowl chain companies in April 2014 and discussed, "If you were the person in charge of company X, how much would you set the beef bowl?" Through the lessons, we would like students to be able to analyze the business activities of companies from a marketing perspective.

Grade Assessment and Credit Recognition

Grading Criteria

About our GPA System

The intent behind our implementation of a GPA (Grade Point Average) system is to (1) create a unified standard for the campus, (2) have it function as an impartial standard, and (3) have it function as an internationally accepted standard. Our GPA system involves the assessment learning achievements using an objective numerical value called GPA. Additionally, this system generally conforms with the grade assessment systems adopted by universities in the West, and can be used overseas as an index used to certify a student’s academic ability when studying abroad, when going on to graduate school overseas, when finding employment at a non-Japanese companies operating in Japan, and so on.
