2. Purpose of the Program

The EDP&M program deals with the issues and theories pertaining to Economic Development that constitute the core of Socio-Economic Development. This program trains students to become career Development Economists or otherwise experts in economic development who can contribute to poverty reduction through economic growth via increased income and/ or employment creation. Facing the multi-dimensional development problems of the 21st century, development economists who are well versed in New Political Economy―a fusion of politics, economics, and culture―are needed. Economists should consider both traditional and new agents in development, socio-economic institutions, and embedded culture in a comprehensive manner so as to effectively situate economic development in a broad context of socio-economic development.

This program deals with the issues related to 1) 'International Development Economics' such as trade and development, strategic industrial policies under globalization, FDI induction and management, capital account liberalization, regional economic cooperation, multi-lateral negotiations, etc., and the matching domestic 2) 'Economic Development Policies & Management' such as domestic economic/institutional reforms, growth-oriented macroeconomic policies (monetary and fiscal) and management, macro strategies and macro-micro-linkage strategies for poverty reduction, coordination
for center-region policies under decentralization, and so forth. The program trains development economists who are capable of managing the cycle of problem identification, policy planning, and execution/coordination. Tools of quantitative analyses such as econometric/empirical analyses and policy simulation models are taught as an integral part of this program.

1) In the Master's Degree Course, students will develop a strong capacity to analyze a country's macroeconomic situation in a development context given a set of statistics (S-T analyses). Concurrently, building upon the existing theories of economic growth/development, students also gain knowledge and understanding about medium- to long-term development strategies and supporting quantitative planning tools (L-T analyses). In conjunction with other development professional programs offered at GSID, the rich curriculum enables students to familiarize themselves with newer participants in development, socio-economic institutions, and culture that were previously outside the scope of traditional development economics. In writing the thesis, students are expected to develop the capacity to carry out comprehensive development planning and execution/management, at an entry level.

2) In the Ph.D. Course, building upon the foundation created in the Master's Degree Course, the program trains students for professional careers as development economists in institutions such as the ADB and the World Bank, and research/teaching careers in universities and other research institutions. Students are expected to acquire a broad knowledge of economic science and develop one (or two) area(s) of professional expertise. Field survey/research in developing countries and internships in development organizations are highly encouraged.
