Explore the GLOBIS MBA through a Trial Class, learn practical business skills, and take the first step towards a life-changing experience.

At GLOBIS University, we develop leaders who have practical business skills, an understanding of technology, an entrepreneurial spirit, and a strong sense of mission.

At this event, you will learn what makes the GLOBIS MBA unique and how we go beyond business. You will have the opportunity to join an interactive MBA Trial Class taught by one of our experienced lecturers. You will also hear first-hand from one of  our students or alumni about their experiences. Moreover, our Admissions Advisors can share information on the application process, financing options, and answer your questions. 

The topic of the Trial Class will be Social Venture. 

Can business solve social issues? Can social impact and financial returns be compatible? If so, how? We go through these questions in the social venture field where markets have failed and government aid has fallen short for the most part. There is no absolute answer on how, and it’s up to you to figure out how you tackle the social issues you’d like to resolve.
