The basic philosophy of the School of Management is to make use of the Tokyo University of Science's extensive interdisciplinary system using quantitative and empirical approaches. This draws from research knowledge gained through the fields of science and engineering to educate students in management through new perspectives emphasizing practical theories and approaches applied to organizations. The educational objective of the School of Management is not simply based on students accumulating knowledge, but also developing the skills needed to independently and collaboratively apply that knowledge for problem identification, analysis, and resolution. This educational philosophy is manifest through research presentations and interactive discussions with advisors based on scientific methods. "Graduation research" lies at the core of this educational mechanism and enables this objective to be realized. Trough this proven, rigorous process, students discover real problems, collect data, perform analytics, formulate solutions and analyze the meanings of the results. Students communicate their methods and findings by making presentations to research advisors for review and evaluation. Through this process, students learn to appreciate, engage and contribute to management, benefitting organizations, stakeholders, and society.
School of Management
Dean, Shigeo Muto
In the more than 20 years since its establishment, the Tokyo University of Science School of Management has, as a faculty belonging to a science and engineering university, provided students with an education uniquely different from other universities, cultivating analytical, conceptual and creative capabilities anchored in a firm foundation of mathematical and quantitative analysis. This educational approach has earned high praise from both the corporate world and society, as well as enabled the School to boast of having a high employment rate among graduates. In order to further the effectiveness of this approach, a new Department of Business Economics has been established to complement the existing Department of Management. The Department of Business Economics will foster stronger scientific analysis skills and will have at its core the economic theories which are indispensable to corporate management, while also teaching game theory, operations research, finance and other decision sciences, as well as artificial intelligence and Big Data-driven data sciences, as elements in a systematic educational program that is tailored to the cutting-edge needs of the era. Within the Department of Management, the goal is to cultivate graduates with a global perspective and independent initiative when it comes to corporate management. Students learn the comparatively orthodox and proven business skills of management, accounting, finance, marketing and management information. However, the aim is not merely to fill students' heads with business management knowledge, it is also to develop the rich conceptual skills that allow them to identify, analyze and lead the way towards solving problems. As evidenced by the fact that more than half of the recipients of the Nobel Prize for Economics were trained in math and engineering at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, research approaches for business management and economics are shifting in a more scientific direction; however, in Japan, where these fields are still treated as the domain of the humanities, the educational and research level is well below the global standard. In order to rectify this situation, the Tokyo University of Science School of Management is cultivating graduates who are grounded in math and science and capable of taking the reins in the business world. Further, in order to ensure graduates can be successful not only within Japan but also overseas, English education, overseas training and overseas study are emphasized. The faculty of the School of Management, both in the Department of Management and the Department of Business Economics, are all active on the global stage. We invite you to join us as we spread our wings to the world and create new approaches to business administration and management science, informed by the distinctive characteristics of a science and engineering university such as the Tokyo University of Science.
