Module Composition

Curriculum Policy

At KCGI, we utilize a curriculum, based on our mission and objectives, that creates high-level expert technicians capable in the field of web business and with skills in both IT (ICT) and management.

[ Course Composition ]

Various courses, comprising related modules, will be implemented in response to the objectives and aims of the studies, to allow students to learn in an efficient, systematic and graded manner

[ Response to Changes ]

In response to the accelerated developments of the IT (ICT) field, review and renewal of the curriculum will be undertaken on an on-going basis in conjunction with the changes to the realities of the IT (ICT) and management skills that students must acquire.

[ Core/Applied Module Groups ]

The entire body of modules to be taught shall be separated into an IT-related core module group, a business-related core module group, and an applied module group for both of these cores, and guidance shall be provided to facilitate the balanced acquisition of credits in tune with study objectives.
Additionally, required modules will be established within the core module groups so that a minimum amount of required knowledge regarding web business will be acquired.

[ Course Final Project ]

In conjunction with credit earned in the core/applied module groups, a career-strengthening module group will be established that includes a course final project, where various themes are explored under the supervision of an instructor. This final project is required and is thus meant to build practical, applied capacity.


IT Core Module Group

The composition of the IT Core Module Group was inspired by the Web-Centric model of the ACM (Association for Computing Machinery), and comprises basic modules to allow for a deep, systematic understanding of the core technologies that support web business, such as system design, databases, web and network, programming etc., and is structured by theory-related applied modules, such as 'Network Optimization Theory', 'Information Security/PKI', 'Seminar on Software Engineering', 'Seminar on System Theory', 'Visual Processing', and 'Basic Theory of Data Mining'.

Web Business Core Module Group

The Web Business Core Module Group comprises three groups on specialized knowledge covering all facets of business and web business: 1) business management, 2) education, and 3) business strategy. To create future leaders, in addition to business-related modules, this group also offers modules that incorporate knowledge of pedagogy from a corporate-training perspective.

Applied Informatics Module Group

The Applied Informatics Module Group will clarify the applicable fields of IT/business in the world, and comprises modules in which students will concentrate on these fields. We learn about case studies of advanced applications and the component technologies of digital content production, such as with manga and anime, and its distribution strategies, production/distribution management in the agriculture and marine science industries, and the tourism industry.

Career-Strengthening Module Group

The Career-Strengthening Module Group aims to build the student's capacity to plan and carry out projects, and is a module group specific to KCGI, as we are a specialized school of graduate studies that trains people for advanced specialist jobs. During the course of carrying out a project, students will become highly technically proficient and gain rich creativity as well as attain a multi-perspective intellect, flexible and accurate judgment, and leadership skills.
