Spun off from the College of Economics, the College of Business Administration was established in June 1967. At present, the college consists of four departments: Business Administration, Accounting and Information, Management System Science and International Business. The Department of Business Administration offers night course for people working during the day.

The college places emphasis on internationalization, as is demonstrated by the fact that many international students enroll in the program. What is significant about the program is that students are free to register for curses outside their own department; they can cover all aspects of business administration if they wish.

After graduation, students move on to various fields, becoming business leaders of major Japanese corporations, public servants, certified public accountants, postgraduate students, and so on.

The Department of Business Administration provides systematic and integrated education regarding the organizational structures and activities of corporations, as well as the environment that surrounds them.
