Graduate - Division of Economics - Department of Studies of Contemporary Economy

Economic research requires not only thorough knowledge of theoretical models and statistical tools but also deep understanding of institutional structures and historical facts specific to each problem. The aim of this department is to train researchers and specialists to be capable of applying current economic theories to practical issues and policy designs in various aspects of contemporary economies. The diversity of subject matters constitutes the very distinct characteristic of this department. In deed, it deals with a wide variety of special fields, such as fiscal policy and public economics, financial institutions and monetary policy, industrial organization and economics of law, international trade and global finance, labor economics and social policy, urban studies and transportation economics, economic development and area studies. Students in this department are, however, expected to choose a few of these special fields and work on them intensively after having mastered the basics of economic theory and statistical analysis.
