Takasaki City University of Economics (高崎経済大学 Takasaki keizai daigaku?) is a municipal university in Japan. It is located in Takasaki City, Gunma Prefecture.

History[edit]

After World War II, the national colleges in Gunma Prefecture were merged to constitute Gunma University (GU, whose main campus is in Maebashi). Takasaki City wanted to invite an economic department (faculty) of the national university; the city had one origin of GU - Gunma Youth Normal School, which was located near Takasaki Castle, in the former site of a regiment of the Army. But the school facilities were estimated too poor in quality, and no faculty of GU was settled in Takasaki.

In 1952 Takasaki City established its own municipal college - Takasaki City Junior College (高崎市立短期大学 Takasaki shiritsu tanki daigaku?), a college with two-year courses in economics and business. In 1957 the college was developed into Takasaki City University of Economics. At first TCUE had one department: Department of Economics (Faculty of Economics). TCUE added departments and graduate schools as follows:

  • 1964: Department of Business Management (a part of Faculty of Economics)
  • 1996: Department of Regional Policy (Faculty of Regional Policy)
  • 2000: Graduate School of Regional Policy (master's courses)
