About the Graduate School of Economics
Based on the theory and evidence of economics and business management, we train high-level professionals and next-generation researchers who will be active in solving problems in business and government.
Fostering Practical Application Skills through Attentive Instruction in Small Classes
We keep the ratio of students per faculty advisor is small, and assign each student to a group of three faculty members to review and supervise their master’s thesis. This system provides detailed research guidance according to the student’s interests.
The program fosters highly-skilled professionals with analytical and practical application skills based on economics and business management, as well as researchers with deep insight.
