Graduate Course

Application Guide for Prospective Students
■This guide will help prospective students in preparing an application for graduate courses offered by Prof. Tanimoto.
It is essential that you read this guide carefully before you submit your application to the admission office.

1. Special Field/Research Area
We study a variety of issues on "business and society", based on business administration; corporate social responsibility, relationship between business and stakeholders, corporate philanthoropy, socially responsible investment, social entrepreneurship, social business, and collaboration between business and NGO/government/administration.
We currently focus on CSR management, stakeholder engagement and process of creating social innovation.

2. Leading Policy
Graduate school is a training place where you will become an independent researcher. The area of “business and society” is regarded as an inter-disciplinary field. You are not required to have fragmented knowledge but basic scholastic achievement of business administration, economics and/or sociology by reading the basic textbooks.
[Master’s Course]
You are expected to do a theoretical study and make them up into a master thesis in two years. Prospective students for doctor course are expected to aim at acquiring basic scholastic achievement during the master’s course so as to complete a doctoral thesis in three years.
[Doctoral Course]
You are expected to think theoretically and analyze empirically. A great deal of reading and writing will be required. Going back and forth between practice and theory, you will be a researcher who can be recognized by global academic society.

3. Request for Students
Environment around business in society has been drastically changing for the past several decades. You are required to analyze the theoretical and practical implication of tackling management challenges while understanding the background.
[Master’s Course]
You are expected to clarify what you want to study, based on your career plan.
[Doctoral Course]
You are expected to keep your spirit high and publish high-quality papers.

Be sure to contact me and read my books and papers before applying for either course.
For international students, study background in business administration and economics in undergraduate is a prerequisite for applying.
Also, please note that in my seminar it would be difficult to get a degree while having a full-time job.
