The word "economy" is an abbreviation of the idiom 經世濟民, which means "to rule the world and to run the people." Therefore, economics is not limited to the scope of economics, but is a concept that expresses "making people happy by improving society as a whole." The Faculty of School of Economics and Business deals with an extremely wide range of fields, including economics, business administration, accounting, and statistics. It can be said that this is a group of academic disciplines for achieving the SDGs.

The 17 goals of the SDGs are poverty, hunger, health and welfare, education, gender, water, energy, job satisfaction, industry and technological innovation, inequality, sustainable urban development, consumption and lifestyles, climate change, marine abundance, and land. It encompasses diverse areas such as the prosperity of the world, peace and justice, and global partnerships. In fact, almost all of these are closely related to what you can learn in School of Economics and Business.

International economics and international management examine economic and management phenomena from a global perspective, and also consider various partnerships. In addition, labor economics and human resource management theory scientifically examine job satisfaction and work styles. These are just a few examples of what we learn in School of Economics and Business.

In today's world, everything is closely related to economic activity, and economic activity and the SDGs are also closely related. Thinking in this way, School of Economics and Business can be said to be the most suitable faculty for understanding the SDGs.
