Areas of Study

Based on a foundation of wide-ranging understanding of the diverse societies, cultures and traditions of the Asia Pacific region, APM has established 4 areas of study in order to develop students with values and social awareness geared toward creating new businesses and cultivate human resources with the drive and creativity to succeed in the dynamic world of business in Asia.

Accounting and Finance

The health of corporations is evaluated by the ebb and flow of money, which is known as accounting, while finance is the field concerned with raising and managing the funds necessary for this corporate activity. Classes in this cluster enable you to gain a solid foundation in these demanding areas and exercise your knowledge in an international context.

Marketing

The theories and methods needed to provide goods and services to the global market is the focus of courses in the marketing cluster. You will learn how to identify the most effective method to link production to the final consumer and determine how much to provide at what cost.

Strategic Management and Organization

These classes focus on how to set goals, establish principles and develop methods for an organization so that it meets the challenges of evolving social needs. If you aim to become an entrepreneur or plan to take over your family business, this cluster is ideal for you.
