There are a number of challenges that East Asia must address if it is to maintain its economic role as one of the leader of the world. These include challenges relating to environmental stability, food and energy supplies, uneven development between agricultural and industrial sectors, widening income disparities and aging populations and accountability of government and business sectors. Human resource development is crucial in meeting these developmental challenges. The course is designed to provide international students with both advanced academic knowledge and practical skills. The master’s program offers both basic and advanced courses through which students can enjoy a comprehensive curriculum. In addition to classes designed specifically for this program, students will participate in selected courses at the Graduate School of Economics. In an international setting, students will develop the academic knowledge and practical skills needed to contribute to sustainable development in East Asia as academic researchers, government officials, or social entrepreneurs.
