Faculty of Economics

Economics is the subject that is concerned with the creation of value through our finite resources, and the knowledge of how to distribute them. From the daily consumption behavior of individuals, to the economic activity of the society in its entirety, the focus of economic inquiries is very broad. By focusing on the study of the behavior of people and organizations under the varied market economic systems of today, we will deepen our awareness regarding every structure of our society such as households, regional societies and non-profit groups. Economics is a living subject that reflects our shifting time period. The aim of the class is to create individuals who can read the dynamic nature of the market economy and can be put to use quickly in the real world.

1. New Curriculum offering Systematic Training in Economics, from Basic Principles to Practical Applications.

From the first year through the beginning of the second year, students will become thoroughly familiar with the fundamentals of economics through studying an Introduction to Economics, Microeconomics, and Macroeconomics. From the second semester of the second year, students will progressively study elective subjects in accordance with their interests. They will systematically gain a deep and wide knowledge of economics from its basic theories to its applicability.

2. Choosing from a wealth of subjects that are in alignment with future goals.

Students can create an ideal course structure that will align with their future goals, and a range of specialized subjects that are necessary to achieve those goals will be offered. For instance, students can calibrate their studies to become an expert in accounting, taxation or finances; or to become a national or local government officer; or design their course to become an active player in the global economy. They can select subjects that are in line with their future career path.

3. Becoming a problem-solving individual through small-class-sized instruction.

In the first and second year, students will learn analytical tools through their familiarization with economic data, and in their third and fourth year, they will gain deeper specialization as well as diverse perspectives from their exposure to extensive seminars and readings. Through small class sized instruction, our aim is to enable individuals who possess sophisticated problem-solving capabilities, and who are equipped with strong applicative skills in mathematics and in IT.
