Keiei Dojo

For part-time students, we strongly recommend taking this course in the second year of studies, in order to gain a deeper understanding of its contents.

Message from the President

GLOBIS University aims at developing visionary leaders who create and innovate societies. We believe that future leaders need to strengthen their interpersonal skills, the so called “human skills” such as strong will and motivation, responsibility and accountability, and courage on top of management knowledge.

Keiei Dojo focuses on developing “human skills,” and the course has been founded on principles of Shoin Yoshida’s teachings at Shoka-Sonjuku (a famous historic private school) that became a driving force behind the Meiji Restoration in Japan.

The books that you are asked to read in Keiei Dojo are the books that have had an impact on me. Upon reading them and discussing them with your classmates, I would like you to find out what the implications are for visionary leaders, what you may be missing, and where you may need to challenge yourself.

I hope that you will gain a deep understanding about people’s emotions and about how to influence people, develop strong beliefs and take actions toward what you believe is right, become conscious about developing yourself by modestly devoting yourself to daily practice and studies, and finally become a visionary leader who creates and innovates societies.

Satoshi Hirose
Innovation, Management Philosophy
"Sound management would create competitive organization, while loose management would guide company to difficulties in long-run, and make stakeholders, including employees and their families, facing unexpected tough environment. Finance is an excellent tool to examine current situation with fact and logic, and also to evaluate impact and feasibility of strategic options. Everybody need NOT to become financial specialist, at all. However understanding how to use finance would be indispensible to become good management officer. My class is designed to create good management officer, instead of financial specialist."

Critical and Analytical Skills, Management Philosophy, Organizational Behavior and HRM
"Why do we live? This simple question is what I want you to think in my course. This world is full of possibilities, but the "time"(one of our most precious resource) is limited. Therefore, we have to choose in which aspect we would like to focus. Being able to answer the above question gives you a clear criteria on where to focus. Maybe no one can answer the question with 100% certainty, but it is important that we keep searching for the answer. I am looking forward to discuss with you in this never ending quest."
