International Course

The International Project Management Course of the Graduate School of Management offers a comprehensive and thorough program that focuses on the projects of temporal cooperation between organizations (business teams) established in order to achieve a certain goal in projects such as large-scale international projects, development of new technologies, and development of information systems. The International Project Management Course closely collaborates with the Project Operations Management Program that is taught in the Japanese language as one of the five distinctive curriculums offered at the Graduate School of Management. This international program aims at cultivating global-minded project managers with diverse management capabilities by developing their professional abilities in such areas as finance, economics, strategy, and organizational behavior as well as project management.

  Students will take the necessary subjects to complete the course over a two year period. Additionally, with the admission of students with various backgrounds and to promote diverse career achievements, the Graduate School of Management has academic supervisors to provide practical guidance on courses and support for overall studies. We hope to respond to the expectations of motivated students through the meticulous, yet demanding educational system.


Academic Supervisors
     Supervisors provide students with guidance in taking courses and assist in overall studies to help provide a meticulous educational system. With support from their supervisors, students will be able to concentrate on their study conditions, purpose, and future careers. Through practical advice in course completion and planning, supervisors will support students so that they can fulfill their commitments.


Subject Organization to Realize Step-by-step Course Completion
     The Graduate School of Management provides a variety of subjects in order for students to acquire specialized knowledge in scientific theories and practical problem-solving abilities. Students will mainly take basic subjects in the first semester of the first year, and then take specialized subjects from the second semester of the first year to the first semester of the second year. From the first semester of the second year, students will take practical business and advanced subjects so that they can systematically complete the course.
