With over 7,000 individuals studying each year, the Graduate School of Management at GLOBIS has cemented its place as Japan’s largest and fastest-growing business school.
As we have witnessed an increased interest from Malaysian students in joining our unique business school, we have decided to once again visit Malaysia's capital Kuala Lumpur to meet the future global leaders who wish to join our program.
At this unique event, we would like to inform potential MBA students of our program, and create an opportunity for students to meet GLOBIS' President Yoshito Hori. During the event President Hori will talk about his own MBA experience and how it has been useful in establishing GLOBIS and developing it into the No.1 MBA program in Japan.
He will also talk about his vision of making GLOBIS the No. 1 business school in Asia.
If you are considering applying for an MBA or wish to learn about the GLOBIS MBA Program from President Hori, do not miss this opportunity!

Mr. Yoshito Hori established GLOBIS Management School in 1992 and GLOBIS Capital Partners in 1996. In 2003, GLOBIS started its original MBA program which, in 2006, received accreditation from the Japanese Ministry of Education to issue the MBA degree (awarded university status). GLOBIS started a part-time MBA program in English in 2009 and will launch a full-time MBA program in English in 2012. Prior to GLOBIS, Mr. Hori worked for Sumitomo Corporation.
Mr. Hori founded the Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) Japan Chapter and became the first board member from Asia in charge of the EO Asia Pacific region. He also served on the World Economic Forum’s New Asian Leaders Executive Committee, as well as the Harvard Business School Alumni Board from 2005–2008. Currently, Mr. Hori is a member of the board of the Keizai Doyukai (Japan Association of Corporate Executives), and the Japan Private Equity Association.
In 2008, he launched the G1 summit, hoping to serve as the Japanese version of the Davos conference. After the earthquake of March 2011 he introduced the Project Kibow, an organization to support the rebuilding of the affected areas. The following year he established the Kibow Foundation, which he serves as chairman.
Above all, he enjoys spending time with his family, especially his five sons.
Mr. Hori has authored several books including Visionary Leaders who Create and Innovate Societies, Six Dimensions of Life, and My Personal Mission Statement.
