Learning while working:
a one-year graduate program for working professionals.
In this graduate school, members of the faculty - broadly experienced in industry - teach the basic theories of technical management, along with the practical knowledge and skills that managers and engineers of technical enterprises lack. The curriculum is arranged to cope with the busy schedule of working adults. Also considering the ever-changing environment of corporate management, the program can be finished in one year with classes held mainly on weekday evenings and on Saturdays - an intensive but effective way of studying.
Through this curriculum, the school aims to strengthen the practical abilities of those working on the frontlines of industry and to give students the ability to acknowledge and solve challenges in management strategy, business-development strategy, and venturing strategy that relate to small and medium enterprises. It is in this graduate school that NIT hopes to contribute to Japan's technological society by providing efficient education in technology management to the key staff of small and medium enterprises that deal with technology. Such enterprises are, in fact, the core of Japan's technological society.
