Programs intended for those who wish to become certified public tax accountants and who are already working in society. With the curriculum, which is created based on practical and international perspectives, one can foster outstanding specialist skills.
In this world of global mega-competition, higher expertise and intellect, as well as the capability to put ideas into practice are required. This is becoming increasingly true, even in fields outside our own specialization, as modern business begins to require integration across many disciplines. In response to such social requirements, the Graduate School of Business and Commerce offers various curricula for interdisciplinary research and education as well as exhaustive research in specialized fields. The School provides lectures and research guidance on academic theories and their applications, covering various areas, including distribution and marketing, finance, management, information, accounting, and tax regulations, from the viewpoint of history, theories, and policies. Top specialists in each field help students cultivate the research competency and capabilities required to work as a certified public accountant or certified tax accountant.
Students can select subjects from the following academic categories: Business and commerce, business management, and accounting. After selecting one of the above categories as their major, students receive research guidance for preparing their masters’ thesis. Practical subjects for nurturing people with substantial expertise and vocational specialization are offered in addition to subjects for nurturing a global view.
Examples include “international management,” “international accounting,” and “international marketing theory” as well as the following four subjects, “income tax law,” “corporation tax law,” “inheritance tax law,” and “national tax collection law,” which are studied by would-be certified tax accountants. To provide people who have full-time or part-time jobs with the opportunities to study, programs are offered on Saturdays and Sundays under the Waseda Satellite program. Here, students can earn credits by attending Saturday and Sunday classes only (master’s course).
