项目名称：English PhD Program in Economics
The Department of Economics, Yokohama National University will launch a Data Analytics path in the International PhD Program in Economics in October 2023, to offer an integrated education in modern empirical economics and data science. All lectures are given in English in the program.
We are currently applying for the continued designation as an International Priority Graduate Program by the Ministry of Education, Sports and Culture (MEXT). If approved by MEXT, we will be able to continue offering MEXT scholarships (University Recommendation) to a few incoming students we select from among those who pass the entrance exam. Compared to the Embassy Recommendation MEXT scholarship, the University Recommendation MEXT scholarship is less known, and hence, few apply. In fact, we often have had some MEXT scholarships left over because too few applied in the past. For those who are interested, we make the admission and scholarship facts available on the following page.https://www.economics.ynu.ac.jp/igp/admissions/pdf/Admissions_and_Scholarship_Facts_2013_2022.pdf
In order to encourage more to apply, we have established a new policy of giving preferential treatment to graduates of YNU's academic exchange partner universities, the university-wide or the departmental, in selecting candidates for the MEXT scholarship from among those who pass the entrance exam.
The graduate school individually assesses the eligibility of some applicants before accepting application fees and formal applications. The eligibility assessment period for these applicants is September 26 to 30, 2022. For other applicants, the application period is October 18 to November 7, 2022.
