Message from the President
Founded in 1965 on the principle of fostering students with a wide perspective of the world and a deep outlook on life, Hannan University's mission is to train modern economic professionals with a global outlook who can contribute to the development of a new economic society and the welfare of mankind. The university was established with the Faculty of Commerce and in 1972, it added the Department of Economics, and in 1986 the Department of Information Management.
The Faculty of Commerce was reorganized and renamed in 1996, becoming the Faculty of Business, and the Faculty of Information Management was established. The Faculty of International Communication, with the Department of Cultural Communication (renamed Department of International Communication in April 2004) and the Department of International Tourism were established the following year in 1997. Hannan University had then become a university covering a broad range of social sciences.
The Hannan University Graduate School was established in 2000. In 2010, the Faculty of International Communication was reorganized, with the Department of International Tourism becoming an independent faculty, the Faculty of International Tourism. Today, Hannan University has five faculties, and a graduate school, with more than 5000 students.
