Faculty information

Training "Sensible Economists" with a broad, comprehensive view of economics

Opened in 1918, The Faculty of Economics is the second-oldest at Meiji Gakuin University. Students are trained to become well-adjusted, balanced "Sensible Economists" that possess an understanding of economics from several viewpoints, such as that of consumers, manufacturers, international society, and the disadvantaged. The Faculty is comprised of three departments: the Department of Economics, the Department of Business Administration, and the Department of International Business . The primary themes of research in the Faculty are people, money, the flow of goods, and their interconnectivity, and these themes are studied in a wide variety of ways. Efforts have been made to create a flexible curriculum that allows students to approach these diverse, multifaceted themes from different viewpoints and achieve a firm grasp of our fast-paced, ever-changing modern society. Field studies allow students to travel overseas and witness for themselves various kinds of economic activity, and many practical courses such as internships provide hands-on business activity experiences. In principle, all students in the Department of International Business participate in study abroad programs mainly in Europe and Asia for half of a semester in the fall of their second year.

Students can also study business management in English.
