Graduate School of Economics

1. Overview

Collapse
The Graduate School of Economics plays a major role in economics education and research to train researchers who are able to work in international and cutting-edge academic research fields. The school has trained and produced numerous brilliant economists, economic experts, and many other key human resources within academic, business, and political fields.

The school consists of two divisions: Division of Economics and Division of Management. Division of Economics features the following four departments: Economics, Statistics, Area Studies, and Economic History. Meanwhile, Division of Management features the following two departments: Management and Quantitative Finance. These departments provide students with a more advanced and specialized level of education. In order to promote positive interaction between theoretical investigation, and empirical applications, and between studies of the present and learning from the past, the school offers a wide array of courses ranging from Advanced Microeconomics to Economic Analysis of the WTO, and from Internet and Market Science to Asian Economic History. Each department is open to one another and students are able to find their optimal mix of these diverse courses.

The faculty members of the Graduate School of Economics are leaders in each of their academic fields. The school is also the center of economic research within Japan and in Asia. In addition to researchers from Asian regions, many researchers from foreign countries come and collaborate with our faculty members through joint projects, research seminars, lectures, and also international conferences. These activities are conducted with close coordination between the six centers of Graduate School of Economics: Center for International Research on the Japanese Economy (CIRJE), Center for Advanced Research in Finance (CARF), Management Education and Research Center (MERC), Center for Research and Education in Program Evaluation (CREPE), Center for Real Estate Innovation (CREI), and The University of Tokyo Market Design Center (UTMD).

Also, the Graduate School of Economics offers a degree-granting program for English-speaking students called UTIPE (the University of Tokyo International Program in Economics).

There is, in addition to the graduate school program, a special non-degree program called the International Research Student Program. This program is designed for international students who are already enrolled in a doctoral program outside of Japan and working on thesis topics that require residence in Japan. The International Research Student Program is not a preparatory program for our master's or doctoral programs.
