GLOBIS Scholarship Recipient
“As a foreigner living in Japan it’s sometimes hard to be able to receive a bank loan or scholarship. The scholarship provided by GLOBIS helped tremendously and allowed me to begin my MBA journey at Japan’s largest business school. I’m really thankful that they considered me as one of their scholarship recipients.”
