MPP and PhD

Opportunities for further studies leading to PhD in Economic

In response to demand for more advanced degrees, APPP in collaboration with the Graduate School of Economics (GSE) of Hitotsubashi University, offers a route for graduates to proceed directly, or return after going back to their home countries and working for a while, to a three-year PhD program offered by GSE. Students who demonstrate exceptional academic ability and strong research capacity may, with the recommendation from APPP faculty and subject to screening by GSE, be accepted into the GSE Doctoral Program. Majority of courses at GSE are given in English, and students will be able to pursue further research while taking advanced courses in Economics offered by GSE.
