KODAMA Masahiro

I am an alumnus of GSICS as well as being on the teaching staff. I learned economics from scratch in this program. After working for a research institute for some years, I returned to this school as an associate professor. As can be observed from my experience, students can study economics in GSICS from a basic level to the researcher level. The teaching staff of our program understand not only economic theories but also actual developing economies. Thus, students can learn about both. The provision of knowledge of both economics and actual developing economies is one of our program's distinct features.
