And among companies headquartered in the Chugoku region, the number of company presidents from HU was 1,076. HU was the only university in the regional ranking that produced more than 1,000 company presidents.

In the national ranking, the number of presidents from HU was at 1,816, putting it at 33rd place in Japan. HU is up from 34th place the previous year.
