Naoko SHINKAI Associate Professor
Department: Graduate School of International Development
|Class Time:||2011 Fall Thursday|
|Recommended for:||Graduate School of International Development|
This course will cover various topics of development finance. The first part of this course is dedicated to policy issues of development finance and related theories. In the second part, we will discuss country or region-specific issues of development finance and consider policy recommendations based on macroeconomic situations and MDGs. Having a good understanding of all the core courses of the EDP&M program would be preferable. Especially, Development Macroeconomics is prerequisite for this course.
Most of the students entering our Economic Development Policy and Management program have not received their undergraduate degrees in economics. Therefore, we provide the coursework in the first semester for all the students to learn the principles of development economics and statistics. Subsequently, in the second semester, we offer several applied courses. This course is one of those applied ones and, in this course, one of the main objectives is the development of good presentation skills. Students are asked to organize the information available regarding Development Finance of one country and project the information rebuilt as an economist. Discussions following their presentations give students some opportunities to learn each other as well.
All the courses are provided in English in our program so presentations and discussions in this course are conducted in English.
This course will be given in English.
