About Our Faculty

Inheriting as our legacy a genteel spirit combined with business acumen, we develop businesspeople with a broad education and an international outlook.

The predecessor of the present Faculty of Economics, Hikone Commercial High School, was founded with a mission to develop business people who combined a scholarly education and a spirit of mutual assistance and social service, in line with the principle of a genteel spirit combined with business acumen. This principle expresses the desire to master the education of the samurai family of Lord Ii, Hikone-born Chief Minister to the Shogun, as well as the spirit of the Ohmi merchants, who pursued profit in society at large. Stepping into this legacy, the Faculty of Economics is dedicated to the development of professionals with an international outlook and much to offer the local community, the fostering of consciousness, knowledge and discernment, and the development of people capable of investigating issues.
