The School of Economics and Finance has been striving to promote practical economic education by fostering economic knowledge that can be readily applied to real-world problems with a particular emphasis on finance and firms' behavior.
The School offers various curriculums, which allow students to be well equipped for the rapidly changing modern economic environment. Courses, among others, are offered on micro- and macro-economics, computer and statistical skills, financial practices, firm's activities, international economics, public economy, and economic history, and some courses are taught in English.
The School was founded in 1947 as the Department of Economics under the College of Business and Economics. The Department was expanded to the School of Economics and Finance in 2002.
There are three fields that our graduates go on to.
First is the finance sector including banks, securities and insurance.
Second is the public sector like government offices, government organizations and various public corporations.
Third is the manufacturing or the service sector, usually at management positions.
Students who desire to work at the finance sector usually acquire finance-related certifications such as CPAs, CFPs, AFPK, etc., before going to a job market.
