Our Graduate School started in 1953 with two departments, Law and Economics.
In the half-century since then, a large number of talented people have graduated and gone on to
excel in judicial and economic circles and in other fields.
The Graduate School now consists of 8 departments and 11 sections. Using 3
campuses, we are building an educational system extending to Graduate School
across all the study fields offered at Aichi University at undergraduate level.
In order to meet society's need for individuals with advanced knowledge, Aichi
University is committed to producing a large number of graduates with doctoral
degrees. Following the Department of Business
Administration’s refresher course for adults that was added in April 2002 and
the Graduate School of Law (Law School) that opened in April 2004, a new
Graduate School of Accounting (Accounting School) designed to foster individuals with
accounting knowledge opened in April 2006.The International Center for Chinese Studies(ICCS), selected for the
Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology's COE program,
has introduced the world's first experimental dual degree course to be offered
by a liberal arts university. In addition to its traditional role of fostering
researchers, Aichi University is hard at work training specialists with the
advanced knowledge demanded by our new era.

- Graduate School of Accounting (Accounting School)
The Graduate School of Accounting, which specializes in the cultivation of
accountants, was established in April 2006. With the Japanese economy remaining in the throes of a structural
recession, robust economic growth requires talented individuals who possess a
combination of advanced accounting and finance knowledge and good judgment.
Against this social backdrop, the accounting and finance graduate program will
pursue an educational philosophy devoted to training individuals who can take
responsibility for the Japanese economy and society while contributing to the
development of their region and its society. The program seeks to bridge the gap
between logical instruction and practical training.
