Ritsumeikan University’s Graduate School of Gastronomy Management is the first graduate school in Japan for comprehensive research centered on food management.
To meet long-standing social demand from food-related industries and government, we cultivate highly skilled management personnel who will transform the future of food, conducting in-depth research on food from a broad perspective and understanding it scientifically and objectively. Our students also obtain the ability to think critically as well as practical skills, using their research to revolutionize food in Japan and the world.

Cultivating highly skilled food-related management personnel
Highly-skilled management personnel tackle the complexly intertwined challenges of modern food-related economic activities, possess knowledge of multiple food-related academic fields, as well as understand the economic and social mechanisms and people's economic behavior related to food. They also have the management ability to build mechanisms that efficiently sustain the economic system of food and contribute to the whole of society. We cultivate highly specialized professionals and researchers who can create food-related innovations and plan their social implementation.
