Faculty information

Nihon University produces human resources capable of contributing to society with a broad perspective and strong problem-solving skills.

Today, the four management resources of people, materials, money and information transcend boarders both rapidly and in large volumes, making the world as we know it go around. The global flow of these management resources is giving way to complex issues, the likes of which the world isn’t used to.
This changing society demands the cultivation of human resources who can respond to the dynamic changes in global trends as global citizens and not just from the perspective of their own countries.
The College of Commerce’s 3 departments of Commerce, Economics and Accounting, aim to nurture professionals who can react quickly and logically to the changing needs of the current day. From the second year students choose their major and start learning from a more specialist curriculum. With 7 courses available, the College of Commerce is committed to helping students realize their dreams.
