Personal Mission

Reconnect with yourself to find the leader within

To initiate change, you need conviction that comes from within. Our curriculum is centered around the Japanese concept of kokorozashi, which denotes that everyone has a unique personal mission in life. But your kokorozashi won’t just appear–you have to find and develop it.

GLOBIS courses, reflection sessions, and extracurricular activities allow you to explore your life story in search of your kokorozashi. All the while, you’ll be coached by faculty and encouraged by peers. Learn to reconnect with yourself and recognize how you can use your unique strengths and passions to make a meaningful impact on society.

Your journey to your kokorozashi is lifelong. Well past graduation, your experience at GLOBIS will serve as a solid foundation for a clearer, purpose-driven path forward.

    “During the kokorozashi-related courses, you read and reflect on global leaders and their personal missions. Reading about their journeys and hearing the collective wisdom of your classmates from countries all around the globe helps you better understand yourself and refine your own mission.”
