Experience an MBA Trial Class, learn valuable business skills, and take your first step into Japan's leading international network.

What is your image of strategy? Is it decided at the beginning of a company's  fiscal year? Or is it an action plan that is implemented in reaction to unexpected events? Or is it a combination of both?

Regardless of one's approach, strategy is an essential function in business. Understanding the theoretical frameworks and how to apply them can help managers make better decisions to achieve the organization's goals.

During this interactive Trial Class, GLOBIS lecturer Karl O'Callaghan will use a real business case study involving a low-cost  carrier (LCC) Airline. Participants will:

  • Be introduced to basic strategy frameworks and analytical methods such as Value Chain Analysis (Procurement, Marketing & Sales, Operations, Customer Service)
  • Practice applying these frameworks by putting themselves in the seat of the Airline's Management and solving a real business problem
  • Be encouraged to think from a broader perspective involving customers, competitors and suppliers
  • Receive information about GLOBIS, our MBA programs and the admissions  process and requirements

Who should attend: This class is recommended for those who don’t have practical experience in strategy and want to become familiar with the frameworks, or those with experience that wish to build on their existing knowledge.
