Society’s expectations toward graduate education in Japan today focus both on the traditional area of developing researchers and on nurturing highly productive people who can meet the needs of an environment characterized by socioeconomic changes including a declining birthrate, rising average age, internationalization, computerization and increasingly fluid employment. Until now, other graduate schools have responded to social expectations like these through educational reforms aimed at training elite businesspeople who can function in international circles and become an immediate asset after joining the workforce. In contrast, our Graduate School of Economics aims not to nurture the few who seek to become a business elite but to provide education to improve the ability of those who form the mainstay of business organizations. As a leading mainstream private university with a history that goes back over 100 years, Nihon University delivers more than 18,000 graduates to all reaches of Japanese society every year. Our graduates function at the center of organizations and tend to become corporate presidents at a higher rate than graduates from any other university. Nihon University graduates in their prime working years rely on the Graduate School of Economics to acquire and update the knowledge and skills necessary for their careers. Graduate school courses provide university graduates with an opportunity to upgrade their skills by acquiring the very latest information and technology, and brushing up their current knowledge. In other words, Nihon University is a school where graduates can return for more and more education. We want our graduates to regard the Graduate School of Economics as a “career anchoring dock,” a place where they can continue gaining the education necessary to develop their careers.
At the base of the Graduate School of Economics is the Economics Department. This department has two subdivisions: Economics, and Industrial and Business Administration. Both subdivisions are supported by more than 100 teaching staff who are specialists in fields such as economics, industry, management and accounting. For now, the Graduate School of Economics offers courses in economic policy, management of medium-and-small sized enterprises, corporate finance and accounting, as well as business administration classes. However, our wide range of specialists allows us to prepare curricula that can meet the needs of individual students in a flexible way as well.
