Faculty of Economics

The objective of the Faculty of Economics is to educate and train people who can actively participate in industry and who are also equipped with a global perspective. Additionally, they should possess the analytical and judgmental skills required in a modern economic society which, due to internationalisation and advances in information technology, is becoming more and more complex. Students learn the workings of real economies through collaboration with businesses, with an emphasis on connections to the real world. Students also develop their ability to understand the workings of society through economic thinking.

The Department of Economics ? Features of Study

Students visit various actual companies and business sites to study economic operations in actual business situations. There are many classes in which students can experience the point where economic theory meets the real world. Students also develop their analytical skills by employing economic thinking in various aspects of everyday life.

A wide perspective and practical skills are needed in order to take an active part in society. Courses taught by business persons and entrepreneurs participating at the forefront of business and management have been established. Courses have been designed to enable students to acquire IT and business skills, and develop an attitude for making the most of their abilities in the field, even as they learn how to practice economic theory.

Educational Goals of the Department of Economics and the Course

The goal of the Faculty of Economics is to educate and train people who can actively participate in industry and who are also equipped with a global perspective as well as analytical and judgmental skills for today's increasingly complex economic society.

System/Policy Course

The course aims to foster all-around business persons who have an extensive knowledge of economic systems, the Japanese economy and industry, and the government. The course is also designed to educate and train students to rationally deal with the various changes that occur in the real world by applying an economic perspective to everyday life, including family, medical treatment, education and welfare.

Theory/Information Course

The Theory/Information Course aims to prepare students for employment in today's information society. The course provides students with the ability to cull and integrate valuable information from among the enormous amount of information available, and then use it to reason out the answers to relevant questions. Thus, the course forges the student's ability to hypothesize and analyze based on economics.

International/Local Course

The course aims to give the student a complex understanding of global economics in order to produce international business persons with good communication skills and an understanding of other cultures. By perceiving the international movement of information concerning human, material and financial resources in the global, transnational, national and local spheres, and developing a wide perspective, students develop their overall ability as "international business persons" who can truly play an active role in the international community.
