Health Economics Program
Hitotsubashi University Health Economics Advanced Professional Education Program
The Health Economics Program is one of the Advanced Professional Education Programs provided by Hitotsubashi University Graduate School of Economics to develop professionals with advanced knowledge and capabilities. Students who have fulfilled the requirements for completion will be granted a certificate of completion of the program upon conclusion of coursework.
The Health Economics Program provides an interdisciplinary curriculum including courses not only in economics but also management, sociology, medicine, technology and other subjects. Some of the courses are taught by the faculty of Tokyo Medical and Dental University and Tokyo Institute of Technology. Systematic professional education based on theory and practice is provided to cultivate academic knowledge of the healthcare-related social sciences and an understanding of medical settings as well as the ability to develop a vision for a sustainable society from a broad perspective.
It is hoped that students aspiring to become professionals in healthcare-related fields such as policy-making at government institutions and problem-solving in medical settings as well as students who are members of society working at medical or nursing care institutions, pharmaceutical companies, medical device manufacturers, government offices, local governments or in other fields related to healthcare and social welfare will join the program.
