Faculty of Economics
Training individuals to be outstanding models of“homo economicus,” able to see with a global perspective and make balanced judgments.
The Faculty of Economics aims to graduate individuals with wellrounded personalities, trained through a sound approach to economic thought, with a broad knowledge of economics and ability to efficiently process information. They will be capable of handling a broad range of work, seeing with a global perspective, and making accurate and balanced judgments. In other words, they will be outstanding examples of “homo economicus.”
A thorough introduction to the fundamentals
The Faculty of Economics has developed an original teaching aid to help students easily acquire knowledge in economics when encountering the subject for the first time. This “Introduction to E-learning Economics” is used in conjunction with large auditorium lectures, small classes, and home study as a unique educational program to teach the fundamentals of economics.
System of three specialized courses of study offering in-depth learning
After acquiring the fundamentals in their first year, students from their second year on are able to follow their own interests and career objectives by taking courses in one of three specialized areas: Public Policy, Industrial Economics, or International Economics.
Preparing for a globalized and information-dependent world
Starting in the first year, students work on their foreign language skills, and in their second year, are provided with opportunities to read economics texts in foreign languages, attend economics lectures in English, and study data processing with computer usages. In this way, students develop abilities that will serve them well in a globalized and information-dependent world.
Comprehensive learning beyond the framework of economics
Students complete a study program in the Faculty of Economics based on a well-rounded model curriculum in which they take courses in the human sciences and other areas outside the specialization of economics. In so doing they develop balanced judgment and gain the ability to see beyond the particular framework of economics.
A focus on engaged small-group instruction
Seminars and other small classes are the core of our specialized education. In the first year students take “Introductory Seminar A and B;” in the second year “Basic Seminar” and “Seminar I;” in the third year “Seminar II and III;” and in the fourth year “Seminar IV.”
The faculty’s aim is to play a greater role in response to globalization in the future and return even more to the world through achievements in research.
