The future begins at the forefront of the present.
Amid significant changes affecting many aspects of Japan and the world, the Faculty of Economics aims to produce human resources that can recognize Japanese and international economic trends, grasp existing issues, and identify solutions. Students sharpen their abilities to find problems and suggest solutions through autonomous learning and discussions in small-group exercise seminar classes.
