Program Description:

The International Development Program (IDP) at the International University of Japan (IUJ) was created in 1995 as one of the pioneer programs in the field of international development in Japan. It is designed to educate future leaders in formulating and implementing economic as well as public policies geared for social and economic development. This program is public policy oriented and has earned its high reputation through rigorous academic training. Since its launch, several hundred civil servants and policy makers from more than 30 countries in the world have been registered as students of the IDP. While most of our alumni work in important economic and public policy formulating agencies (e.g. central bank, ministry of finance, and ministry of trade), some have joined major international development agencies such as the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the World Bank, and the Asian Development Bank (ADB), where they play vital roles in formulating development polices leading to improving the welfare of the developing world.
