Department of Accounting and Finance

Using global standards to think about the focus of business administration - money

Since introducing accountancy to our subject roster in 1947, Aichi University has produced a large number of tax and certified public accountants. The department comprises three courses: Accounting, Finance, and Business Design. In the Accounting course, students learn how to record and measure a company’s management status, and obtain the skills to provide business administrators and investors with accurate information. The Finance course imparts fund administration and management methods, as well as fund-procurement methods, which are indispensable for business administration. The Business Design course allows students to extensively learn about company management as a whole, on the basis of knowledge of accounting and finance. The Department of Accounting and Finance focuses on these three areas, in each of which students can pursue in-depth learning.

This course has organized a curriculum that is ideal for individuals who are looking to work in the capacity of a certified public accountant, a licensed tax accountant, a specialist officer in the National Tax Agency, the Regional Taxation Bureau or tax offices, and so on. For example, students can learn about cost accounting methods (essential to the manufacturing industry), through practical case studies from a broad viewpoint.

Finance

This course seeks to develop professionals who are knowledgeable in fund procurement and management techniques, which are becoming increasingly diversified.

For instance, the fiscal affairs side teaches students methods for analyzing a company’s fund procurement strategies and project investments, and gives them knowledge on how financial products such as securities and bonds are used for asset and risk management. The course is ideal for individuals who wish to work in the financial section of a company or pursue a career in financial circles.
