My ultimate goal is to become a professor of accounting. I hope to follow in the footsteps of ANDO Momofuku and contribute to society through my work”.
*1 The ANDO Momofuku Award was founded through the generosity of the late Honorary Doctor ANDO Momofuku, the founder of Nissin Food Products Co., Ltd., to encourage and support students who have outstanding academic results, are of good character, and have played a leading role in various activities
*2 The Yokoyama English Award was established through a generous endowment by Professor YOKOYAMA Kenji, Dean of the College of International Management, with the aim of encouraging Japanese basis students to strive to improve their English ability in their first year, to encourage these students to discover the many different ways it is possible to learn at this university, and to cultivate human resources who can be internationally active in the future.
