Testimonials from recent YNU graduates

“My three year experience at YNU (October 2016 to September 2019) was certainly the best experience I could hope for in a Ph.D. experience. Not only was the coursework rich with both theoretical and applied knowledge, but the support system of the university staff and faculty also enabled an excellent learning environment. The seminars developed our research presentation and skills and also developed our skills as future reviewers, providing peer-to-peer comments. I achieved more than my doctorate at YNU, because I also leant how to continuously sharpen my research and analytical skills constantly beyond the expertise acquired. I am certainly a much better economist and person for it.”

“YNU was undoubtedly the best place for me to achieve a Ph.D. qualification that certifies my aptitude as a practitioner in my own field of expertise. I learned a lot during my three years of study. The coursework provided strengthened my theoretical knowledge, and the seminar that encompassed considerable research discussion with colleagues and professors expanded my research view. In addition, the good relationship with colleagues and professors made me a better person. All these are the most valuable assets that I gained from YNU while achieving my doctorate.”

“My two years in International M.A. Program at YNU was one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had. Academically, I learned a lot to help further my expertise in Economics, which will also help me in my career now working as an assistant dealer in Bank of China, Tokyo Branch. Moreover, professors not only helped me with theoretical knowledge, but care about my daily life and work plan as well. I really appreciate every story and experience professors shared with me, which helped to broaden my way of thinking. The people I met is another aspect of good fortune to treasure. Everything I experienced and everyone I met had value. I am confident that YNU is a good place to help further expertise and nurture an inclusive way of thinking.”
