The Global Business Program (GBP) at the Hosei University is a newly designed program integrated as part of the Faculty of Business Administration at Hosei University, that commenced in September 2016.



The Global Business Program (GBP) at the Hosei University foundation is based on the objective to develop human resources for the management of globalized businesses in the 21st century-which is often called “The Asian Century”.

The students in this program will enjoy active interaction with fellow students from different backgrounds and cultures, which will enhance their understanding of global business management, and encourage proactive participation in learning activities. In addition, this will become an optimum program for studying Japanese style of management as well as the Japanese spirit of craftsmanship.

One essential element in the management of globalized businesses is development of communication skills in the English language. For this reason, the GBP will be conducted entirely in English. The GBP program’s students will acquire a broad range of knowledge and theory, from a basic to expert level, which are indispensable to participation in the global business environment. Additionally, the GBP program includes in its curriculum company visits, internships and also classes given by guest lecturers with business management experience. By way of these educational opportunities, GBP students will be able to relate the theories of business administration to actual practices. The GBP program is divided into four units:

  • Basic unit – to learn the basics of business administration
  • Advanced unit – to acquire an advanced level of knowledge of business administration
  • Special lecture – lecture on specific subjects within the scope of business administration
