Creation, Specialization
Entrepreneurship is the critical component for us to 'create and innovate the society.' Then, how can we brush it up? We provide technical skills and knowledge, but that is not enough. I believe it is the 'virtual' experience of real startup that trains your entrepreneurship. Please enjoy our venture-related courses, and virtually experience your entrepreneurial journey, through case discussion, role-playing, and business planning.

"A good manager need to have extensive management experiences and accurate understanding of various principles and frameworks of management which are effectively and organically integrated in order to tackle with various management problems he or she faces day to day. MBA education aims to first disassemble student’s practical knowledge and experiences, and then to integrate them with fundamental theories and frameworks underlying them so that he or she may make appropriate judgment and decisions on difficult and complicated management problems. I would like to emphasize that you should not leave what you have learned in each discipline or course stand alone but try to integrate them into one big ecosystem of management. Through your study at GLOBIS, I really look forward to seeing you metamorphose into really visionary leaders who create and innovate the societies by creating and renovating businesses with enhanced social corporate value."
