Social Management Course

Corporate Strategy Program

The Corporate Strategy Program aims first for acquisition of specialized knowledge, thinking methods, as well as the ability to analyze a situation and make the necessary decisions for the management of companies and NPOs. Then, on top of this, the program provides education to strengthen the problem-solving capabilities that are essential for the business world. By teaching not only management and accounting theory, but also introducing a large number of local cases and examples from the northern Tohoku and Hokkaido regions, the program produces individuals who will be able to solve various problems affecting companies from a global and local perspective, in addition to contributing to the growth and development of local industries. The program also offers business strategy practice as an academic subject. In this class, you will work with local companies to learn, through practice, how to create product development and sales plans.

The program has a stronger focus on tourism-related subjects due to the support and co-operation provided by central government agencies and companies. With these subjects, we are actively developing human resources who will play an active role in the service industry with their entrepreneurial creativity and approaches.
