Faculty of Economics
Department of Economics envisions a learning community dedicated to empowering its students to improving economic competitiveness, advancing social justice, reducing poverty, celebrating creativity and artistic expression. These envisions are realized through the education which is facilitated to acquaint students with the economic aspects of modern society, to familiarize them with techniques for the analysis of contemporary economic problems and to develop in them an ability to exercise judgment in evaluating public policy.

Strengths in the department include macroeconomics, micro-economics theory, econometrics, environmental economics, public economics, cultural economics, institutional economics, economic history, development economics, game theory, industrial organization, international trade and finance, labor economics. Main body of our research is the application of frontier theoretical and quantitative tools to the analysis of important practical issues.

The main educational vehicle which improves the logical and analytical ability of student is “Project oriented seminar”. In this subject, students collect materials, analyze data, build theoretical model, and discuss the issues in a small size group. Through the intensive education in a small size class, the interactive learning between the professors and students are stimulated effectively, and students are trained to achieve the purpose of the project. In addition, advanced level of IT skill can be mastered through the sophisticated IT curriculums.
