Department of Management

Considering not only the pursuit of profit but rewarding corporate management as well

Business administration applies to "companies (profit-oriented organizations)" that produce and sell goods and services. Its study cultivates the managerial skills for efficiently and effectively utilizing such management resources as "people, goods, capital and information" in order to advance an organization. The focus is placed on various matters that support management, such as the provision of goods and services and the workplace environment, and also the mastery of such knowledge as bookkeeping, accounting and information processing that are required in corporate management. Business administration at OUC involves consideration not only for the pursuit of profits but of overall management that is able to satisfy the majority of the people and the community that are connected to that organization.
