History,Philosophy and Goals

The Graduate School of Economics was founded in 1975, and provides education in 2 majors: Economics, and Business Administration. It shares the ethos of Self-Restoration with its parent institution. With a view to meeting the needs of contemporary society, this ethos espouses a spirit that is not afraid of self-change, while maintaining the strength of purpose founded on a robust core. The Graduate School s own most recent Self-Restoration was manifested in the establishment of the Medical-Welfare Management Program. This program aims to train professionals in the administration of medical and welfare institutions, equipping them with the knowledge and skills required in the workplace, in economics, business administration, accountancy and law.
The foremost mission and objective of the School is to train specialists to identify issues in our increasingly complex and fluid contemporary society, and to seek comprehensive solutions, equipped with competence in the social sciences and the ability to articulate their own views and opinions clearly.

Main Fields of Research

The ethos of Self-Restoration made its debut on the international stage in 2003 with the launch of the Public Administration (PA) Program, sponsored in part by JICA. The PA program, with its classes conducted entirely in English, is pivotal to the cultivation of global human resources in the School. The PA Program was offered in principle for the benefit of JICA sponsored international students; however, the flexible curriculum allows students from other courses to take up to 14 credits in PA courses. Moreover, from 2010, the course is open to all.

Graduate Careers

Graduates have gone on to pursue postgraduate studies in doctoral programs, become local and national government civil servants, and find employment in banking institutions, manufacturing, tax accounting, and trading businesses.
