School of Economics Admissions Policy (Policy of admissions for enrollees)

- Fostering individuals who take an interest in various social phenomena from a global perspective, and who can think on their own -

 The global political and economic situation, including that of Japan, is facing major challenges. Poverty and environmental issues are two such challenges, and it goes without saying that economic problems are the root cause. Against such a backdrop, studying economics at university these days is very meaningful. At the same time, it is important to become aware of the diverse cultures and different ways of thinking that exist in society and throughout the world. The qualities necessary for global citizens to thrive in this tumultuous world not only include having specialized knowledge in economics, but also having a wide, diverse knowledge and firm values.
 The School of Economics at this university stands behind this idea, and believes that foreign language ability, knowledge about society and the world, the ability to think logically, and good judgment are the fundamental academic skills necessary to succeed in the business world and the public sector. Our goal is to foster individuals who take interest in various social phenomena from a global perspective, and who can think on their own. Therefore, we seek students who are interested in economic and social issues, and desire to attain the ability to think independently. It is based on this enrollee selection policy that we established the admissions examination subjects to screen applicants.
