International Graduate Programs (Doctoral)

We currently offer the three English-taught programs:

- The International Program in Public Economics (IPPE)
- The International Program in Financial and Business Economics (IPFBE)
- The International Program in Management and Accounting (IPMA)

IPPE targets students who want to learn the latest economic theories and analyses of economic and public issues. It covers various important topics in modern society such as economic policy, public finance, industrial structure, labor relations, the environment, social welfare, and so on. IPPE also offers lessons on mathematical and computational analyses on these issues.

IPFBE and IPMA are suitable for students who want to study business-related issues. IPFBE focuses on financial and economic analyses of business issues, while IPMA mainly involves management and accounting studies. Students of IPFBE are required to take IPMA subjects, and vice versa, to achieve a multidisciplinary understanding of business issues. IPFBE and IPMA students also have the privilege to take classes at Kyushu University Business School (QBS).
