While the Japanese economy is maturing and economic growth is sluggish, Japan ranks second in the world for personal financial assets, whose effective use is an urgent issue, and its asset management industry is becoming increasingly important. To this end, the Finance (Design of Money) donation course requires students to examine cutting-edge methods in asset management operations and learn methods for contributing to the enhancement of the profitability and international competitiveness of the Japanese economy.

To utilize knowledge related to asset management and finance theory in the educational field, we systematically assign teachers as leaders in this course to establish an educational system that caters to, among other things, graduate students of the Graduate School of Management and the Graduate School of Economics, and other undergraduate and graduate students interested in this subject. In other words, teachers who are well versed in practical asset management and finance not only convey their knowledge to undergraduate and graduate students, but also introduce methods for systematizing practical knowledge, thereby establishing a balanced educational system.

In addition to establishing practical research systems with relevant external organizations, we determine a project theme for each academic year, discuss the actual conditions characterizing the asset management business, and disseminate the results of research and education through public symposiums and other means as the shared property of society.
