Global Business Program (GBP)

The Global Business Program (GBP) is a newly designed program integrated as part of the Faculty of Business Administration at HOSEI University, that commenced in September 2016. Its foundation is based on the objective to develop human resources for the management of globalized businesses in the 21st century, which is often called “The Asian Century”.
The students in this program will enjoy active interaction with fellow students from different backgrounds and cultures, which will enhance their understanding of global business management, and encourage proactive participation in learning activities. In addition, this will become an optimum program for studying Japanese-style management as well as the Japanese spirit of craftsmanship and hospitality.
Japanese companies have been able to maintain their competitiveness in the global business environment with outstanding craftsmanship, widely known in Japanese as “Monozukuri”, and top-quality services.
In addition to large-scale manufacturers of products and brands with a worldwide reputation, many other companies in the areas of retailing and services also are successfully expanding their presence globally, particularly in Asian markets. Moreover, the Japanese style and spirit of hospitality, famously known in Japanese as “Omotenashi”, captures the hearts and minds of tourists from overseas.
The GBP offers the unique opportunity to obtain in-depth knowledge of Japanese-style business management, which has been fundamental to corporate success throughout the world.

Department of Global and Interdisciplinary Studies, Faculty of Global and Interdisciplinary Studies
Global and Interdisciplinary Studies (GIS)

Global and Interdisciplinary Studies (GIS) is a full department rather than a program, consisting of five areas of study ranging from Arts & Literature to Business & Economy. To comprehend and deal with global issues and ever-changing cultural phenomena effectively, it is essential to approach these from multiple perspectives, which is why its curriculum is multifaceted and interdisciplinary. The discussion-focused study in a small class environment with English as a means of instruction will cultivate an in-depth understanding of a range of subjects, while also demonstrating expertise in a specific field. Utilizing the rich scholastic and industrial experience of a diverse staff, students will actively engage with the latest theories and methodologies. Indeed, many of the graduates now play a key role in multinational organizations, while others have been accepted by world-leading academic institutions.

Additional Information <Program Highlights>
1. Liberal arts
A liberal arts education lays the foundation for intellectual pursuits and creates a framework for students to both contribute to and thrive in society. GIS offers opportunities for students to gain a deep and wide knowledge of various disciplines, including (but not limited to) the humanities and social sciences, in order to enrich the mind, make unbiased judgments, and develop flexible and innovative thinking.
2. Interdisciplinary Studies
An interdisciplinary education at GIS moves between and beyond traditional academic fields. It liberates students from an overemphasis on and the narrow perspective of any single discipline in understanding complex issues in the world today. They also learn how to adopt and synthesize new ideas, while gaining skills in critical thinking and problem solving within a supportive department setting.
3. A Global Perspective
Recognizing the variety of social and political challenges confronting contemporary society, GIS seeks to develop a truly global perspective to analyze and engage with the diverse experiences of an interdependent world. Whether choosing a career path abroad or within the increasingly internationalized environment of Japan, students leave GIS as an independently-minded person with sensitivity and tolerance to cultures not their own.

Department of Sustainability Studies, Faculty of Sustainability Studies
Sustainability Co-creation Programme (SCOPE)

The Objective of SCOPE
What is a sustainable society? How can we create it? There is no absolute answer to these questions. The objective of SCOPE is to train students to become GLOCAL(Global + Local) citizens, who can lead the creation of a sustainable society with global and local perspectives.
In this modern world, we face increasing challenges to maintain peaceful and prosperous societies, deriving from a number of factors such as global environmental problems, an ever growing world population, globalization of economic activities and consumer behavior, as well as continuous political and religious conflicts in some regions.
Now is the time we take actions to make a new model to establish a sustainable society. In order to join forces to achieve this goal, it is imperative that students first grasp the whole structure as to how such issues are related to each other, and develop solution-oriented thinking skills. SCOPE utilizes experiential learning, research, and service activities to implement practical solutions for a sustainable future.
What We Offer
1) Ability to determine the core of complex issues and to comprehend the actual situation
2) Ability to critically analyze social and environmental issues and to seek possible solutions
3) Communication skills to bring together collective efforts of all society members throughout the process of conducting a project and strive for the solution

2. Field-based and Active Learning Opportunities
Students will be able to apply what was learned in the classroom in terms of the knowledge, skills, and values of these disciplines to our communities and society through hands-on experiences off-campus. These learning opportunities will provide students “real life” exposure for sustainability challenges.
3. “Co-creation” Experience
The keyword of SCOPE is “Co-creation”, which goes beyond “cooperation”.
