Over the past 120 years, since the foundation in 1880 for fostering business education and research in Osaka, the Graduate School / Faculty of Business (GSB/FB) and its predecessors have sent off thousands of excellent graduates into the world of business and research. The institution has established its reputation as one of the top three Japanese business schools along with Hitotsubashi University and Kobe University.
In order to provide better educations and meet the new needs for research in todayfs global markets, GSB has launched new master's and doctoral programs in April 2002 under the concept of gGlobal Businessh. gGlobalhhere means not only international but also inter-disciplinary. We emphasize that business knowledge is created and integrated beyond its disciplinary base, and is also extended to worldwide and focused on local matters. Hence, our "Global Business" concept aims at integrating essential elements of business society such as "internationalization and localization" or "private and public".
