The Shortest Route to a Doctoral Degree – 5-year Doctoral Program

Comprising a Former Period (two years) and a Latter Period (three years), the 5-year Doctoral Program aims to effectively train advanced researchers. Many graduates of the 5-year Doctoral Program have found careers as researchers at universities and research institutes.

Acquiring Practical Knowledge of Economics – 2-year Master's Program and 2-year Program for Working Professionals

2-year Master's Program and 2-year Program for Working Professionals are two-year programs (also known as the "Former Period of Doctoral Degree Program") to obtain a master’s degree in economics. Classes for the 2-year Master's Program are given on weekdays and Saturdays, whereas the 2-year Program for Working Professionals only offers classes on Saturdays, so as to allow students to attend courses without affecting their jobs. Those who successfully complete the 2-year Program for Working Professionals and wish to further pursue their research interest may advance to the Latter Period of Doctoral Degree Program. Because classes of the program are also offered only on Saturdays, students can obtain a doctoral degree by attending courses on weekends only.
