However, the successful transition to the new information society will require not only the development of groundbreaking new information technology itself but also the expertise to take full advantage of the strategic potential of information technology. Although leading the world in many areas of electronics, data processing and communication technology, Japan lags behind in the application of ICT to creation of innovative new management and social systems. This situation is undoubtedly due in large part to a shortage of highly-skilled manpower with sufficient mastery of the new technology to develop new applications for the design, implementation and control of management information systems.
The objective of this Department is to study information and management systems and to train specialists with the expertise knowledge and skills necessary to develop the vast potential of information and management technology and to do so with an appreciation of socioeconomic environment of the real world. Such expertise is necessary to imagine totally new and different social structures and to develop innovative ways of organizing and managing businesses.
