Faculty of Business Administration

Producing leaders for a drastically changing business world

In 1947, earlier than all other universities in the Chubu Region, Aichi University began to offer courses in business administration and accounting. In 1963, the Department of Business Administration was established in the then Faculty of Law and Economics, and the department became independent from the Faculty of Law and Economics to form the Faculty of Business Administration in 1989. Furthermore, since 2005, the faculty has been divided into two departments: the Department of Business Administration and the Department of Accounting and Finance, to allow students to acquire more specialized knowledge. Despite the two separate departments, business administration and accounting are in a complementary relationship with each other, so the Department of Business Administration and the Department of Accounting and Finance also closely coordinate and collaborate with each other. For the two departments to play their own roles more appropriately, the departments should be connected to each other, like two wheels connected to each other with an axle. Since AY2018, therefore, the curricula of the faculty have been drastically changed to include courses common to the faculty, which are expected to play the role of an “axle” connecting the two departments. This initiative will facilitate closer and stronger collaboration between the two departments. Moreover, the Business Design Course has been newly established in the Department of Accounting and Finance. Students in the new course will be able to study across the two fields of business administration and accounting, for example, considering ideal ways of corporate management using accounting data.
The Faculty of Business Administration, Aichi University, aims to continue implementing active and bold measures to foster cultured business elites with a broad perspective who can appropriately respond to various issues in drastically changing contemporary business society, based on their specialized knowledge developed through the systematized curricula.
