FACULTY OF ECONOMICS
Dean: MORIMUNE, Kimio, Ph.D
HISTORY OF THE FACULTY OF ECONOMICS
In April 1900, the first lecture on economics was
delivered in the
Economists of Kyoto Imperial University cooperated with jurists to publish an academic journal titled "Law and Economics, Domestic and Foreign Review (Horitsugaku Keizaigaku Naigai Ronso)", and then launched the still now continuing economics journal "The Economic Review (Keizai Ronso)" in 1915.
This group, then consisted of 8 professors, 2 associate professors, and 100 students per academic year, was called the Kyoto School, and they devoted to the study "autonomous economics for citizens" (See Kyoto Daigaku, History of Kyoto University, 1997, p. 153). And, in 1926, with the aim of their activity to go internationalization, they published the Kyoto University Economic Review in English. However, due to political pressure against communist sympathizers, Professor Kawakami had to leave the University in 1928.
With the newly appointed faculty members, four additional primary areas of research unit (koza) were offered, beginning in 1930: economics specific subjects; history-and business-related subjects; law-and literature-related subjects; and seminars and readings on economics-related topics in foreign languages. By 1939, pro-war sentiment prompted the addition of classes such as Principles of East Asian Economic Policy and Principles of the Japanese Economy. In 1941, the number of primary areas of research unit (koza) totaled 13, including subjects related to East Asian economies.
During WWII, studies were curtailed, and students were sent to the front. After the war, the professors and associate professors engaged in self-examination and criticism of their own pro-war activities. As a result, 14 faculty members left the school and six remained. Democratic sentiment in 1946 promoted equal participation of all the faculty members into one unified collegial group. The reorganized faculty started to offer some classes in the General Education Department (kyoyo katei). Meanwhile, the graduate program started to offer business administration courses in addition to the previously established course work in theoretical economics or history of economics, and economic policy. At that time, 35 students enrolled in the Master's program and 18 students enrolled in the Doctoral program.
With 150 students, the undergraduate program had thirteen primary areas of research unit (koza) after WWII, and four management-related primary areas of research unit (koza) were added from 1953 to 1962. In 1959, the faculty established the Department of Business Administration, which offered six primary areas of research unit (koza). In 1964, primary areas of research unit (koza) were reshaped to show the major focus of study: Principles of Economics, History of Economics, Monetary and Finance Theories, Industrial Economic Theories, World Economic Theories, Principles of Management, and Management Policy.
After the student movement era (1968-1978), reorganization took place in the Faculty of Economics. In 1984, the Faculty changed the curriculum structure into broader research unit (dai-koza), each of them including several small primary areas of research unit (koza). Several professors in each broader research unit (dai-koza) offered related subjects, such as management, management policy, and analysis of marketing /accounting. From 1986 to 1990, some new broader research units (dai-koza) were added: Theory of Economics, Comparative Social and Economic Policy, History of Economics and Philosophy, Regional Industry and Finance, Statistics and Information, and Finance.
Since 1989, the Faculty's reorganization has been
directed toward an emphasis on a graduate school that is characterized by
internationalization and focus on the information age. The heightened emphasis
on graduate education became possible by shifting the official status of
faculty members from undergraduate toward graduate programs. In addition, four
divisions of study comprised of 11 broader research units (dai-koza) were
created. The number of Master's
students was set at 82, with 41 students in the Doctoral program. To make
possible the internationalization of the
In the teaching of the graduate program, the Faculty collaborated with the staff of the Institute of Economic Research Kyoto University. In 2006, the Faculty created Graduate School of Management in collaboration with the Faculty of Engineering. and others. This is a professional business school that trains students and provides them with Master of Business Administration. Further, the Faculty collaborated with the Faculty of Law in creating of Kyoto University School of Government.
Efforts at internationalization have meant inviting more international scholars to the Faculty's academic events and sending more students and faculty members to study abroad. In addition, exchange programs have been officially established with schools overseas.
To meet the demands of the fast growing computer and information age, the Faculty has developed extensive computer facilities. A school-wide Internet environment was completed and state-of-the-art video equipment made available with which class activities can be simultaneously broadcast online. Databases and online library use are available to the students and faculty members for their research activities.
Throughout the history of the Faculty, students have been encouraged to conduct autonomous learning (jigaku jishu). According to this philosophy, students are expected to exercise their own initiative in situational analysis, problem solving, and independent judgment based on the synthesis of knowledge. Academic freedom has been always encouraged to help students become creative and professional researchers.
The Faculty of Economics has served several sets
of distance learning system built on Gigabit-network and ISDN between
An affiliated association, Kyoto University Economic Society, is formed
to publish Keizai Ronso (The Economic Review) and its special issues, Chosa
to Kenkyu (The Research and Study).
The Kyoto University Economic Review, which has the longest
history as a Western language economics journal in
browse/ker. Further, to promote
the academic discussion over the research results of the staff,
As of early October 2008, the Faculty is comprised of 31 professors, 15 associate professors, and 5 lecturer. In addition, 21 instructors from other universities and institutions teach courses at the undergraduate and graduate programs. 1 research associate works for the Economic Research Office.
The number of students currently enrolled in each category is as follows:
Undergraduates -1,137 (38 from abroad)
Master's Program -74 (31 from abroad)
Doctoral program -169 (45 from abroad)
Auditors - 11 (0 from abroad)
Special auditors -2 (2 from abroad)
Research Students - 57 (53 from abroad)
Total: 1,450 (169 from abroad).
The Faculty's library possesses about 463,000 volumes, documents and periodicals, including the Georg von Mayr Library, the Karl Bücher Library, the Takarabe Library, the Ueno Collection, and the Kawakami Library. In addition, the library possesses an extensive rare book collection consisting of about 9,700 volumes, many of which are parts of the aforementioned special collections. The oldest book in the collection is the 1482 edition of the first volume of Summae Theologicae by St. Thomas Aquinas.
In addition, the faculty has the Economic Research Office as an attached facility, which collects statistical data, materials, and documents. It provides references and documentation services for research activities.
The four-year undergraduate program is offered by two departments: Department of Economics and Department of Business Administration. A total of 124 credits are required for graduation (48 credits from university-wide subjects, and 76 credits from subjects of the Faculty). There are no required or elective courses. Taking a yearlong course could earn 4 credits, a half-year one 2 credits. Taking a seminar could earn eight credits if one submits a senior thesis.
Seminars are available for sophomore through senior students, and enrollment is limited to thirty students per class (10 from each academic level). Seminars are discussion-based classes whose topics are decided by the professors who teach them. In some seminars, students are offered opportunities to conduct field research, or to visit factories and companies in the Kansai area. The senior thesis is directed by the respective professor, but other faculty members take part in its evaluation too. In the undergraduate program, classes taken at the Faculty of Law can be also recognized as applicable toward degree requirements.
Special admission processes are offered to those who graduated from overseas secondary schools and those who have earned bachelor's degrees from other Faculties of Kyoto University or other universities. Those admitted into a second bachelor's program can take only economics courses in order to complete the degree, and that requires only two years.
After graduation, about 90 percent of the students find employment in the public and private sectors, especially in banks or companies in finance, manufacturing, and commerce. Every year, about 20-30 students proceed on for postgraduate studies.
In its graduate program, in collaboration with the staff of the Economic
Theoretical Economics, Applied Economics, Political Economy, Economic Policy, Economic History and History of Social Thought, Management and Accounting
After the creation of the Graduate School of Management in 2006, the graduate program is united in the 5 year Doctoral program. The first 2 years of this program is called the Master's program. In this part of the graduate program, students have to acquire the basic knowledge and the ability to make an original contribution in their further study. They have to show their academic capability by submitting a Master's thesis. However, it is possible to leave the graduate school after the 2 year Master's program. On the other hand, those who acquired (or are going to acquire) a Master's degree at other universities can take an examination to continue their studies in our Doctoral program.
To receive a Master's degree, a student must earn 30 credits and submit a
Master's thesis. To complete the Doctoral program, a student is required to
submit yearly research plans and reports to his/her academic adviser, the
professor who provides guidance to him/her. In the final stage, a guiding
committee is formed to help the student completing his doctoral dissertation.
No credits are granted for the submitted reports. The procedures of submitting
a dissertation are explained in the
