Message to Potential Candidates to Ogawa Seminar
In Professor Ogawa’s seminar, there are numbers of students who have extensive knowledge in education development, education economics, and international experiences. Currently, I am in GSICS receiving valuable knowledge from Professor Ogawa and other students. In Professor Ogawa’s seminar, you will not only learn education development from perspective of economics but also increase opportunities to gain experience in various international fields. I highly recommend joining this seminar if you are interested in the field of education development and jobs in international organizations.
