    Hideho Numata
    PhD (Engineering), Dean of the Faculty of Business Administration

    Message from the Dean

    Business administration is a practice-oriented discipline which explores business organisations and the marketplace. The Faculty offers the opportunity for students to take the knowledge they have gained of business and management and create something new. Students can be confident that they will master the skills needed in the real world of work: the strength to step out, to think deeply and creatively and to work as a team. As part of the business faculty, students will develop the ability to deal with the various values and changes of this globalised world, the self-awareness to act and think for oneself and to show leadership. Studying with us will be your launch pad. We are looking forward to building the business administration school with you.

    Professor Numata received a PhD (Engineering) from the Graduate School of Electro-Communications, the University of Electro-Communications. He also holds a MBA and other specialist qualifications such as Advanced Social Researcher and Applied Information Technology Engineer. As a business person, Professor Numata was a marketer and solution-provider at Dainippon Screen Manufacturing Co., Ltd. He also started his own think-tank venture business in 2002. In academia, Professor Numata was a researcher at Research Centre for Advanced Science and Technology, the University of Tokyo, and the National Institute of Informatics. Most recently, he was a committee member of the Information-Technology Promotion Agency, Japan, and Vice President in charge of Education and Dean at Graduate Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies.
