Welcome to the Faculty of Business Administration. The Faculty of Business Administration constantly adapts to changes in the times and is fostering business leaders who will be engaged globally in the new era. Learning business administration leads to acquiring the most useful practical skills in the fields.

Until high school, students are focused on "studying", tasks that are given by the teachers mainly completing tasks for themselves, but at the university level, the students are the protagonists, thinking and asking questions, making "Academics" the center for themselves.

Business administration is a system of scientific knowledge of concerned planning and managing of organizational activities. The field extends to business management theory, accounting science, commerce, business engineering, management informatics, and analyzes management, taking a variety of approaches such as economics, sociology, psychology, and mathematics. It is a discipline that makes use of all academic disciplines and is useful for better organizational management. To that end, we have adopted a wide range of activities and learning methods that learn independently with small sized numbers in each lesson.

In addition to producing many successful students such as certified public accountants and certified tax accountants, we have produced professional capable students who are active in the field of business such as finance, production, distribution, marketing, personnel affairs, and information. About 40% of the Faculty of Business Administration is women, but we are putting emphasis on the production of female leaders in the business field.

Dialogue with various stakeholders is required for the management of the organization. With dialogue, you can collaborate with others and seek common objectives and benefits. I believe that it is in the field of management that can make the best use of "Dialogue culture" of Soka University.

Black companies and corporate scandals remain unchanged in Japanese society, but I realize that the mission of the Faculty of Business Administration of Soka University, which holds humanistic management, is greatly expanding.

We are waiting for you at the Faculty of Business Administration.
