In order to support the globalization of corporate activities as well as more service- and information-intensive industrial structures, the Department of Management in the School of Management carries out scientific management education on various management techniques and theories, which have developed and expanded significantly in recent years, through numerical/quantitative and empirical approaches that center on the mathematical and statistical knowledge accumulated by the university over a long period of time. In addition, capable human resources are fostered to have a broad concept of values and sense of management from the perspective of globalization and global environmental problems.

Research Groups & Research Areas

  • Strategic Management

    How can a company win over others, and how can a company be maintained? Strategic management considers these questions from various business management perspectives. On the basis of existing research in various fields, we aim to compile papers that are suitable for business sense and useful while still being empirical.
