Education and Training Benefits System

Specialized Practice Education and Training Benefits for the Full-time MBA Program

The MBA Programs under GLOBIS University (‘University’) have been designated as an education and training facility by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare. If certain conditions are satisfied, the maximum benefits of 560,000 yen* can be granted to the MBA students over 1 year. For full details, please click here.
* The maximum benefits of 560,000 yen is applicable for those who enter the MBA in September 2018. (The maximum benefits remain at 480,000 yen for those who entered in 2017 and before.)

What are Specialized Practice Education and Training Benefits?

The purpose of the benefits is to support the mid- and long-term career development of workers and to promote employment stability and re-employment. When a general insured worker (employee or former employee) under employment insurance has satisfied certain conditions and completed the Specialized Practice Education and Training that is designated by the Minister of Health, Labour and Welfare, a part of the education and training expenses will be reimbursed to the worker by HelloWork (with an upper limit).

Specialized Practice Education and Training Support
(Basic Daily Allowance)

If you are eligible to apply for the Specialized Practice Education and Training Benefits and meet some conditions (e.g., being unemployed and under the age of 45), you also may be able to apply for the Specialized Practice Education and Training Support. You will receive half of "the basic daily allowance*" every two months for the period of your study. Please contact the HelloWork for more details.

There is an upper limit for the basic daily allowance.

FAQ

Can anyone apply for the benefits?

Please refer to "Eligible Persons" as above. In order to confirm your eligibility, please contact the HelloWork office that has jurisdiction over the location of your home address.

Can I receive the benefits when I have taken Pre-MBA courses?

Yes, as a general rule. Since the Pre-MBA Program period is not factored into your enrollment period as an MBA student, you can apply for the benefits irrespective of your Pre-MBA Program period.

The offset of your Pre-MBA tuition payments will not affect the amount of the benefits to be paid if you do not receive any scholarships. If you receive a scholarship, this reduction combined with Pre-MBA tuition fee deductions may reduce your benefits available.

Can I receive the benefits when I plan for a long-term enrollment beyond one year?

No, as a general rule. However, we are happy to assist you by reviewing your credits earned through the Pre-MBA courses and suggesting an appropriate pace and period of your study.

Can I receive the benefits when I receive scholarships and/or education loans?

In principle, the benefits will be applied to the amount of tuition after your scholarship is taken into account. You need to file the application by subtracting future payments that you expect from any scholarship. On the other hand, education loans from general financial institutions or the like should not affect the amount of the benefits to be paid.

Can I receive these benefits even when my employer is paying for a part of the tuition?

The benefits are applied only for the tuition payments made by you as an individual, excluding the portion paid by your employer. Please note that the benefits are not applicable at all in cases when your employer is paying the entire amount of the tuition or for applications that are made under a corporate name and corporate address.
