Our goal is to foster business people who create groundbreaking knowledge in technology and business management, and strategically design, plan, and execute new businesses and projects, and cultivate innovators who work towards a prosperous society by fueling the creation of scientific and technological knowledge and incorporating this new knowledge into society and industry. Students learn methodologies for analysis and thinking, and acquire specialized knowledge of technology management, and advanced knowledge of cutting-edge technology and industry sectors. Their practical abilities to realize innovation are developed through practicums where students engage in discussions with business managers, policymakers, and experts at the forefront of business management, science, and technology, and propose projects and policies built on advanced technologies. In addition, through broad research activities where issues are deeply investigated and problems are solved, students form the ability to make decisions on their own using logic based on facts, and learn to take the lead to overcome difficulties and make breakthroughs.
In the Department of Technology and Innovation Management, practitioners are trained to be innovation leaders who can utilize science and technology and theorize to contribute for the development of industry and society. In order for practitioners to become such innovation leaders, they obtain skills such as ability to create values based on science and technology, ability to draw up organizational vision and strategy with global view and organizational ethics, ability to communicate effectively, and so on.
Using innovation to create economic value based on broad science and technology, and to solve social problems and establish a rich and sustainable future society are important tasks not just for companies, universities, governments, and NGOs, but for each and every individual living on this planet. It is also our obligation to future generations. The Department of Innovation Science fosters knowledge professionals capable of leading the way to advance industry and society through the creation of practical and groundbreaking knowledge that is required for and contributes to innovation. We also aim to establish and systematize the principles of innovation science. Furthermore, research, education, and collaborations with society are carried out in cooperation with specialists in other areas and top educational institutions overseas.
The Department of Innovation Science focuses doctoral course. We foster scientists and knowledge professionals who can produce pragmatic and salient knowledge for innovation and also lead the development of the society and economy based on the state-of-the-art knowledge and theories in the fields of science and technology. Students acquire competencies to originate high quality research, write research articles, deepen the knowledge in respected fields, and lead the academic community.
