The Department of Business of Pusan National University has 225 openings for new students and 36 esteemed faculty members. The discipline of business management taught in our department involves studying companies. It can be considered a separate discipline of social science. In general, the discipline of business management is a preparatory step for all the activities conducted in a company. A company needs to manage its human resources, manufacture a proper product in a proper volume, and promote its products to the consumers while doing all these things with high cost efficiency. Many think that the discipline of business management is about making money, but it is not always so. You also need to study management to be able to successfully run non-profit organizations such as alumni associations, schools, or hospitals.
The Department of Business of Pusan National University was founded on the educational ideology of the University, which is “Truth, Freedom, and Service.” As a result, the department values the responsibilities of the business manager and aims to develop skilled professional business managers who can realize persistent merits over their company’s competitors under the new paradigm of management.
