The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

International University of Japan
Campus Full time September 2017 Japan Niigata

The objective of this one-year intensive master’s program is to equip scholars with fundamental knowledge and practical skills in the fields of international relations, international development, and public management. [+]

Top Masters in Economics and Administration in Japan. The objective of this one-year intensive master’s program is to equip scholars with fundamental knowledge and practical skills in the fields of international relations, international development, and public management. The main target includes employees who have more than 2 years of work experience in private enterprises and public institutions who intend to obtain a master’s degree at the professional level with a lighter academic research activity workload. Students who complete all requirements are awarded a professional master’s degree, the Master of Public Policy. Curriculum The curriculum of the one-year master’s program consists of a combination of required courses and elective courses: the former provides analytical and empirical skills and knowledge that are applicable to policy-oriented issues; the latter focuses more on specific aspects of practical and policy-oriented issues and expands the theoretical capability and descriptive knowledge obtained from the required courses. This combination allows the scholars to facilitate problem identification and problem solving in regional and international agendas. Policy Paper Different from the two-year master’s programs, scholars are not required to write a solid master’s thesis. Instead, they are required to write a policy paper on an important policy-related topic under the supervision of faculty members. This gives the scholars an opportunity to learn how to discuss their policy topic by integrating the concepts and methods that have been acquired during the entire one-year program as well as knowledge developed in their previous professional careers.
