In order to help students engage in specialized research in the field of international economics, we offer various lectures and seminars covering subjects including analysis of international transactions and study of their macroeconomic impact, and analysis of the global market. Classes on trade policy, international economics, international finance, foreign exchange and other subjects provide fundamental international economics theory education. As part of international economics studies, we also included classes on regional economics around the world such as American economics, East Asian economics, developmental economics, developmental assistance and others. In addition, we encourage our students to take classes on macro- and microeconomics to learn the fundamentals of economics while they pursue their studies in the field of international economics.

Classes in this field help students to understand company’s strategic actions and relevant administrative mechanisms based on standard economics and game theory. More specifically, the characteristics of internal organization and behavioral patterns in Japanese corporations are analyzed. Microeconomics provides the primary base for these studies, which is why corporate governance is viewed as a practical application field therein. Because we also focus strongly on relationships with the government and fund procurement, education in general economic policies and finances are vital.
