Words from International Relations Faculty

Samuel Amponsah | Associate Professor of Economics

Poverty and underdevelopment in my country led me to pursue further education in Japan. Upon arriving in Japan, I had the opportunity to study at TIU's Graduate School of Economics, where I obtained my MA and PhD in Economics. The knowledge that I acquired helped me to understand why some countries are underdeveloped and others are developed. It is exciting and fascinating to be teaching in TIU because you always can engage students from diverse backgrounds who provide real-life experiences illustrating the theories and issues that we learn in class. IR in TIU offers students the opportunity to study a wide range of problems and issues that have a global impact. In my teaching, I want my students to master the dynamics of globalization and become knowledgeable in economic theories that will help them to be creative and skillful in domestic and international negotiations. I also motivate my students to acquire practical skills in data handling and empirical analysis, which can sometimes be challenging for some IR students but important for their future careers.
