Career Options for Graduates

In the past, those who have completed the doctoral program (or dropped out at midterm) have become successfully employed at universities, including Okayama University, Shiga University, Hirosaki University, Hiroshima University, Yamaguchi University, Yokohama National University, Wakayama University, Osaka City University, Osaka Prefecture University, Kobe University, University of Hyogo, Kobe City University of Foreign Studies, Nagoya City University, Osaka Gakuin University, Otemon Gakuin University, Kansai University, Konan University, Tezukayama University, Doshisha University, Nanzan University, and Fukuyama University. Quite a few students have secured jobs with research institutes, such as the Nomura Research Institute, the Japan Research Institute, and the Japan Securities Research Institute. Many others have become certified public accountants, while others have traveled abroad to study. As evidence of international recognition of our graduate program, recruitment teams from the World Bank in Washington D.C. (U.S.A.) and International Monetary Fund (IMF) have visited us regularly in recent years. In fact, several graduate students have been working for the World Bank as interns. If a graduate student is proficient in English with the high possibility of earning a degree, then he or she will have the opportunity to attend an orientation given by faculty members who formerly worked at the World Bank or IMF.
