However, students majoring in economics or management and business (Business Research) who have obtained a certain grade point average and who have passed successfully both the evaluation of the thesis and the oral examination are allowed to advance to the graduate school's doctoral program without taking the admission examination.
There may be certain cases in which people who are judged to have sufficient experience in research without master's degrees may be allowed to enter the doctoral program. In such cases, special treatment may be granted to those who have already performed remarkably in any research institute or organization, and they may be allowed to finish the doctoral program in a shorter period.
Along with the internationalization of knowledge, the Economics program of Osaka University ensures licensing for researchers and professionals not only in academia but also in the business community. With this in mind, we have promoted clarification and transparency regarding the conditions concerning awards of doctoral degrees, while further strengthening the guidelines for the preparation of academic theses, timelines for completion of doctoral dissertations, and required academic standards.
