The Endowment, through the recognition of the structural problems that the Japanese economy has recently experienced and the struggle in competitiveness of industrial businesses, hopes to conduct research in wide areas by utilizing the methods of management and economics to look for concrete methods in conducting basic reform to revitalize and develop the Japanese economy. These results will be utilized in the endowment courses and will be offered not only for the education in the Graduate School of Management, but also the Graduate School of Economics and Faculty of Economics.
