Tracks of Study

Business Track (BT)

Located at the Osaka-Ibaraki Campus, the Business Track features a fascinating combination of courses offered by the College of Business Administration. Instruction is held entirely in English, giving you a first-hand, insider's look at business in one of the world's largest economies. The program offers you a unique opportunity to study business with an international and intercultural perspective as you study alongside fellow students from around the world. As a Business Track student, you are also eligible to take courses offered through the OSE Track.

Moreover, students are only eligible for Japanese classes offered within their own track of enrollment.
