The Undergraduate Courses
Our Faculty bases its education on a core philosophy that aims to “cultivate practically skilled economists adapted to the 21st century.” Our vision of a “practically skilled economist” is that of a person with a high level of specialist knowledge of economics and able to translate that knowledge into practical and effective action. The cultivation of such professionals has been the purpose of our Faculty since its establishment, and is a tradition of which we are most proud.
A “practically skilled economist” for the 21st century must be equipped with the ability to solve problems and generate solutions appropriate and applicable to modern economic society, which is becoming ever more globalized and digitalized. Specifically, he or she must have the following three skills:
- Wide general knowledge, a strong foundation in basic economic knowledge, and a high level of up-to-date expert knowledge in a chosen field of specialization
- Intellectual skills in information processing, quantitative processing and communication
- The ability to think creatively to generate solutions, using the knowledge and skills they have cultivated.
In order to nurture graduates who can fulfill the demands outlined above, our Faculty has prepared a curriculum called “Single Faculty Course System”, with the following unique advantages:
- Acquisition of both general foundational and specialist knowledge
- Development of abilities in information processing, quantitative processing and communication skills
- Cultivation of creative thinking and problem solving skills
- Maximization of practical learning experience opportunities
