A flexible, modern MBA curriculum, customized for tomorrow’s visionary leaders


Curriculum Structure

Each course falls into one of three categories: Fundamental, Applied, and Specialized. You’ll start by acquiring core knowledge with Fundamental courses, and then hone your skills with Applied courses. From there, Specialized courses focus on areas specific to your future careers.

Curriculum Disciplines

The GLOBIS curriculum covers essential MBA knowledge for all business settings. But it also builds on that knowledge with entrepreneurial, technological, and global insights that will help you stay ahead of the curve in an ever-changing world. 

Your business foundation will start with basic disciplines such as  Organizational Behavior and Human Resource Management, Marketing and Strategy, and Accounting and Finance. From there, you’ll begin to explore unique skill sets in disciplines such as Creation and Innovation, Technovate,  Japan/Asia/Global, and Management Philosophy.
