Faculty of Commerce

The Faculty of Commerce was established in 1950 as the first faculty of humanities and social sciences at Kurume University. Since then, more than 23,000 graduates have gone on to become active in various fields of society.

The educational idea of the Faculty is the " training of business leaders to develop a new society. " To realize this idea, the Faculty offers specialized subjects divided into three areas, Commercial Science, Business Administration, and Accounting, so that students can systematically study diverse principles and laws of business.

In Commercial Science students study the subjects related to commerce, such as marketing, finance, business communication, and transportation. Business Administration is another field where students study what business should be like, and search for principles and laws to sustain and develop it. Accounting is a learning field where students study techniques and rules to record and process business statistics.

Faculty members emphasize the theories of trade and multinational corporations which fit the internationalization of business, and basic and applied information science which copes with an information-oriented society. To reach its educational goals, the Faculty follows three educational policies: 1) Education in small sized seminar-style classes, 2) Emphasis placed on practical science and encouragement of students to obtain professional jobs, and 3) Connection with the community through the frequent holding of extension lectures.

The Faculty in having observed the 60th anniversary of its founding in the year 2010, is making further progress, and reinforcing the cooperative relationship with its graduates to develop a new society.
