KOKOROZASHI: The Pursuit of Meaning in Business

20:00 - 21:30 (Japan Standard Time)
with Tomoya Nakamura Register Now Details

Join GLOBIS University Dean Tomoya Nakamura for a live Online Seminar about how finding your Kokorozashi can change your perspective on business and enrich your overall life.

The Japanese concept of 志 (Kokorozashi) can be interpreted in many ways: will, motivation, ambition, a sense of purpose, or personal mission. It provides direction for both your career and personal life. We at GLOBIS feel it is vital for thriving business leaders to have this sense of purpose that goes beyond business.

Attend our special Kokorozashi Panel discussion facilitated by GLOBIS Dean, Tomoya Nakamura. In this live, online interactive event, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Hear from alumni about:
    •  how they developed their Kokorozashi
    • how finding their Kokorozashi changed their lives
    • how an MBA helped them to proceed with their Kokorozashi
  • Learn more about GLOBIS and how our emphasis  on kokorozashi makes us different from other business schools 

Who should attend:  Anyone who wants to lead a more meaningful life, especially those still finding their personal mission, or those who have already discovered their passion and want to connect their values to their career.  Regardless of where you are in your kokorozashi journey, this event will help you draw inspiration from those who have already done so. This event is also recommended for those who are considering an MBA, but want to know if it’s right for them and what makes GLOBIS different.
