Internships (Integrated Learning Program)

Internships provide critical, first-hand experience for those seeking to understand Japan’s corporate world. Translate your classroom knowledge into practical skills and show potential employers your strengths.

But you’re not just there to show your potential–you’re there to add value.

Our sponsor organizations will determine the scope of your projects as an intern. To achieve your course objectives, you must take initiative and communicate.

What’s unique about a GLOBIS internship?

At GLOBIS, we don’t call them internships. We call them the Integrated Learning Experience (ILP), which is an integral course of our MBA curriculum. ILP combines actual work experience with ongoing academic support from faculty and credits for graduation.

Here’s how it works:

  • One week after the start of ILP, you’ll be asked to submit a pre-assignment, such as market research of your host company or a business development pitch. Faculty will mentor you one-on-one to drill down into operations, market research, business plan development, etc.

  • After a month, you will share your progress with your faculty advisor

  • Finally, at the end of ILP, you will present your final project to GLOBIS.
