Keio University (PEARL)
A Pioneer of Economic Research in Japan
The Faculty of Economics at Keio is one of Japan’s leading economics departments, and traces its history back to 1890, when Keio became the first Japanese institute of higher learning to establish a dedicated department for the theoretical and empirical investigation of economic issues. Since then, the study of economics has been pursued here in a liberal, open-minded atmosphere, with the faculty committed to education and research of the highest caliber. Keio Economics alumni hold positions of leadership in politics, business, and academia, heading or serving on the boards of hundreds of publically listed companies, and many alumni are active at the highest levels of public service and government.
