  • Can I do an internship?
    Yes, GLOBIS provides students with a range of intensive internship opportunities. Students can put their knowledge into practice, while getting on-the-job training in a variety of industries. Applying skills in a Japanese context provides immeasurable benefits to students and may even lead to an offer of employment after graduation.
  • How long does it take to find a job after graduation?
    Six months after graduation, more than 90% of our students are fully employed. Those who wish to continue to search for job opportunities after graduation will need to apply for permission to stay in Japan, but this is generally not a problem.
  • Can I work in Japan?
    In most cases, business-level Japanese is required to work in Japan. The requirements regarding Japanese language ability and other skills differ from one industry to another. As globalization is a big issue for most Japanese companies, there is a need for talented workers who understand multiple languages, have knowledge of overseas markets, and can offer new perspectives on current business practices. Sponsoring a work visa in Japan is usually not a problem once you have been offered a full-time position.
  • Can you introduce me to companies located outside of Japan?
    Yes, to a certain extent we are able to introduce you to companies located outside of Japan. Some of our Corporate Mentors have been able to place graduates in their overseas subsidiaries, and we are actively looking into forming partnerships with companies abroad.
  • Where do graduates work?
    Although many of our graduates find work in Japan, we have witnessed an increasing number of graduates who found opportunities in overseas countries such as the US, Europe, and Singapore. Our graduates work in various industries and can be found in many layers of an organization. Some graduates returned to previous companies, and others started their own companies upon graduation.
  • What salary can I expect after graduation?
    Compensation packages will depend largely on your previous experience, position, and industry. Our graduates have had salary packages ranging from a few million yen to over ten million yen. At first sight, Japan might not seem as competitive as other MBA regions in terms of salary packages, but our graduates were able to see considerable increases in terms of post-MBA salary. Furthermore, some were able to make complete career switches in terms of industry and position.
  • Can I stay in Japan to look for a job after graduation?
    Yes, you may stay in Japan after graduation to look for a job. You will need to apply for permission from the Japanese immigration bureau to do so, but this is generally not a problem. Six months after graduation, more than 90% of our students are fully employed, and once employed the process to get a work visa is fairly straight forward.

Part-time MBA and Online MBA

  • How can the part-time MBA help me improve my career?
    The majority of our part-time students have felt a positive impact on their career during and after their MBA studies. Many gained additional responsibilities at work, were able to switch companies, move to different industries, and enjoy increases in both salaries and bonuses.
  • What kind of career services do you provide?
    Since most our part-time students are already employed and living in Japan upon joining the program, the services we provide are more limited compared to those we provide to our job-seeking full-time students. We do however provide personal consultations, and information regarding available positions through posts on our job board.

    The skills and network gained at GLOBIS generally lead to new career opportunities during and after the MBA.
  • Can I do an internship?
    Internships are only available to full-time students as part of their MBA studies. Part-time students who wish to do internships are encouraged to apply directly to the companies of their choice.
  • Where do graduates work?
    Although many of our graduates stayed with their current employers, we have witnessed an increasing number of graduates who switched jobs during their studies and also those who found opportunities in overseas countries such as the US, Europe, and Singapore. Our graduates work in various industries and can be found in many layers of an organization. Certain graduates also started their own companies during or after their MBA studies at GLOBIS.

Pre-MBA

  • How can the Pre-MBA help me improve my career?
    From our past Pre-MBA students we’ve been able to witness that their Pre-MBA studies have had a positive impact on their career. Some enjoyed promotions, higher responsibilities at work, and the skills and network provided in the Pre-MBA also allowed some to successfully switch careers during their study period.
  • What kind of career services do you provide?
    Since the Pre-MBA program is a non-degree program, we do not offer any career services.

  • What is the Corporate Mentorship Program (CMP)?

  • Do I need to hire your students as a condition?
    Partners entering the CMP have the freedom to offer our students and graduates employment and internships at their discretion.

    We do, however, urge those partners offering internships to consider hiring students upon completing a successful internship period.
  • How long is the internship?
    The internship period is from early June to mid August. Companies willing to offer internships are requested to present their company in advance, preferably in November during an information session held at our campus.
  • What is the Japanese level of your students?
    Many students have JLPT N2 level or above. Since most students are studying Japanese, we recommend companies to have an English-speaking environment for internships and full-time positions.
