Message to Potential Candidates to Ogawa Seminar

Through the experience of study abroad in Cambodia, I have developed interest in educational issues in developing countries, and I have started thinking that I would like to work in jobs involved in the field of Education Development and Economics of Education. In this year, I have developed knowledge and skills of education development and economics of education by taking Ogawa seminar and Human Capital Development’s class. I also conducted an internship at the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport (MoEYS) in Cambodia from September 4th to 30th, 2017. During the internship, I was placed in the Department of Policy and Planning under the supervision of His Excellency Sothea Lim. Throughout the internship in the MoEYS in Cambodia, I was able to explore the real world settings in the Cambodia primary education, and was able to learn the current situation on educational issues in Cambodia. in the next year, I am planning to obtain a double degree at Korea University, Graduate School of International Studies (GSIS) in the Campus Asia program to further develop my expertise. My goal is to pursuit a career in an international organization as an educational specialist, in particular the World Bank. However, it is a challenging task to be equipped with knowledge, experiences, skills and linguistic ability which would be necessary to work for international organizations or in developing countries in the area of international cooperation. In Ogawa seminar, through Prof. Ogawa’s plentiful experiences, knowledge and skills, we are able to improve and acquire the ability necessary for what we would like to achieve, and abundant opportunities where we can utilize technical knowledge and skills acquired in the seminar such as internships that are being provided. Besides, since the seminar is held in English, we are able to discuss in English with foreign students and seniors who have varieties of specialties, which would contribute to improving student’s English ability up to international level

I highly recommend those who are interested in Education Development and Economics of Education or would like to work for international organizations to participate in Ogawa seminar. I am looking forward to seeing you here
