Welcome to the Web site of Management of Business Development Course, Department of Engineering, Graduate School of Integrated Science and Technology, Shizuoka University.
This course is fundamentally designed for working students to study management of technology (MOT), not MBA. The most of our students work in companies in day time, as businesspeople or engineers, and study in night and weekend in our campus. So, we have classes in evening of weekday and day time in weekend.
In addition, we expect student’s research plan is about a study of a solution for concrete management problems in his/her working places or a study of development of a new business/project/enterprise. We are always waiting proposals of researches from students. In other words, we do not provide any research projects you can join.
You can choose one of two options in entrance examination. Asia Bridge Program (ABP) and usual program.
