The Faculty of Economics at Hitotsubashi University is among Asia's most respected and comprehensive. Our programs offer the scope and intellectual vitality to help transform curiosity about economic questions into principled propositions in economics.


The undergraduate program has over one thousand students, providing strong foundations and numerous opportunities for developing specialization. Among these is the new option of a 5-year combined B.A. and M.A. program. Our graduate program, with approximately 200 masters and doctoral students, ensures close faculty supervision for studies at the frontiers of theory and empirical analysis.


Our programs, which are delivered mainly in Japanese, are also host to approximately 100 international students.


We welcome you to explore the various activities of our Faculty. While the Faculty's Japanese language website is the official and more complete version, we hope you will find this English language site helpful.
