授業の概要 Course Overview


This course is the prerequisite for all other courses in the BBA program that educates innovative and ethical leaders who possess a ‘Frontier Spiritʼ and to create knowledge that advances business and society.
This is a methodology course aiming at providing an essential toolkit for other courses of the BBA program. We will emphasize intuition and applications in business and economics. We will cover essential mathematical tools (calculus, probability, and basic statistics) and the flow of case studies, discussion, and interactive activities.
Upon the completion of this course, students will be able to
1. Apply essential mathematics in other courses
2. Be familiar and comfortable with case discussion and interactive activities.
