This paper describes the process of developing and designing a Japanese business course for intermediate level students at the State University of New York (SUNY) at Buffalo and for a non-credit intensive workshop for local business people. A needs assessment was conducted by means of a survey to find out the expectations and goals of students and prospective employers in the Buffalo area. Data were drawn from intermediate level students who were interested in taking a business Japanese class, and from 16 local companies that have relations with Japan. The results of the survey were used to develop the business language program at SUNY Buffalo. Appended materials include the student questionnaire, survey results, and the goals and objectives and content of the business Japanese program at the University of Buffalo. (JL)
