Message from the Dean


Seven Skills for Future-oriented Education.
Business Administration for Human Resources Taking on the World.
Professor Hiromichi Morimoto, Dean of Faculty of Global Management Studies

Business administration is the backbone of global management. It is a discipline in which students study organizations and the behavior of individuals within them. By adding a global vector, we offer a new perspective to consider corporate activities that will someday no longer be viable in Japan from a broader standpoint. This department goes beyond university education to actively promote the development of seven skills, namely cultural understanding, logical thinking, professional knowledge, problem identification, organizational issue recognition, entrepreneurship, and regional issue recognition. We develop global human resources that will go out into overseas business. This is proactive learning or “future-oriented education.”
By cultivating various skills, students will achieve their individual visions. The studies over your four years here may be challenging, but I believe that you will gain the skills necessary to pave the way for the future.

Characteristics of learning

Completely novel classes that add a global perspective to business administration. During their first year, students identify their aptitude, and in their second year, they choose their own path from the three courses. With many expert professors, the University of Nagano offers education that is rare to find even at the leading national universities of Japan.
