Graduate School of Economics

This graduate school aims to develop highly trained professionals with specialist knowledge and research capabilities in economics and business administration. It comprises of two majors (Economics and Business Administration) and four programs.
Under the new curriculum that was introduced in the 2010 academic year, we have established a Specified Research Topics for Practitioners model designed to help people from the workforce to develop practical and applicable skills. This academic model does not require a Master's Thesis for graduation and is based on an accumulation of reports and surveys conducted by workers in companies and other institutions, and a research report on a specified topic related to their occupational and practical experience. This model exists alongside the more conventional course where a Master's Thesis is required, so the student can choose the most appropriate study model for them. Also, responding to the need for continuing education among those in the workforce, we provide night time and weekend courses, and have adopted long-term academic programs. We also invite guest speakers who are at the forefront of their business and economic fields to enhance our lecture programs.

Major in Economics

In this major, students will learn various economic theories and methodologies and conduct research on the theme of their choice. Students will have a deep understanding of systems and policies; consider all things historically; investigate issues affecting the international community and regions, markets, and industries; perform theoretical and empirical analyses - and consequently sharpen their theoretical thinking.
