Global/Asia/Japan, Innovation
We all have experiences, perspectives, insights and ideas that are germane to the study of business strategy. While the quality and originality of these ideas often have very little to do with the number of years a person has spent on the job it is by looking at the experiences and insights of those who have gone before us (i.e., the business leaders that you will meet in our case studies) that we gain the means by which to test the viability of these ideas.
Reiji Yamanaka
Creation, Specialization
Entrepreneurship is the critical component for us to 'create and innovate the society.' Then, how can we brush it up? We provide technical skills and knowledge, but that is not enough. I believe it is the 'virtual' experience of real startup that trains your entrepreneurship.Please enjoy our venture-related courses, and virtually experience your entrepreneurial journey, through case discussion, role-playing, and business planning.
Ryoko Takei
Marketing and Strategy
I personally believe marketing is fun as it is basically related to organizational growth -- the positive side of organizations. However, it is a professional process. When you conduct it, you need to know many theories and logical concepts and be accustomed to harmonizing these with the real world.Is it art or science? This is a common question in the marketing world. As a person who also has a pure art profession, my belief is that any profession has both aspects. I think marketing is 80 per cent science with a 20-per cent sense of art, and I need 20 per cent of science for my artistic profession. What do you think? I would love to hear your thoughts in my class.
Satoshi Hirose
Innovation, Management Philosophy
"Sound management would create competitive organization, while loose management would guide company to difficulties in long-run, and make stakeholders, including employees and their families, facing unexpected tough environment. Finance is an excellent tool to examine current situation with fact and logic, and also to evaluate impact and feasibility of strategic options.Everybody need NOT to become financial specialist, at all. However understanding how to use finance would be indispensible to become good management officer.My class is designed to create good management officer, instead of financial specialist."

During your studies at GLOBIS, it is important to keep clear goals in mind at all times. What you should aim to learn is not just academic knowledge, but practical skills and a mindset which can be used in real business situations. This is one of the core benefits of the GLOBIS MBA.
Shigeo Kashijuku
Accounting and Finance
“How do you unleash your full potential? In my class, I aim for everyone to learn new things through intensive discussions with high caliber classmates and put them to practical use from tomorrow. Your goal is to be a professional manager or entrepreneur, not just a finance expert. You and I will invest a lot of time in the class and so aim to maximize positive NPV for everyone. I will do my best to make the class bright, fun and meaningful. See you at a class of Day 1.”
Stefan Sacre
Marketing and Strategy
Reporter interviews highly successful CEOReporter: “How did you become a successful CEO?” CEO : “Two words : good decisions.” Reporter: “How do you make good decisions?” CEO : “One word : experience.” Reporter: “Where do you get experience from ?” CEO : “Two words : bad decisions.”Although wrapped as a joke, there is some wisdom in it as well. But how is this story linked with your MBA course ?The class room can provide a safe environment to exactly make that type of experience - including good and bad decions. I want to provide the environment to allow experienced-based learning and look forward to welcoming you in my class.
Suzuka Kobayakawa
Creation, Critical and Analytical Skills
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.
Sven Van Stichel
Marketing and Strategy
"With new technologies disrupting almost every industry today, preparing for the future has never been this challenging. To cope with this kind of change, there is a strong need to rethink how we develop and execute business strategies. Throughout our journey together, you will learn how to scan surrounding environments and detect new threats and opportunities, which we will leverage to create sound strategies. At the same time, we take a closer look at our current and future customers, aiming to deliver new value and distinguish ourselves from our competitors. My end goal is to equip you with practical business skills, speed up and enhance your decision-making processes, and prepare you for the changes to come. Of course, you will do this together with a network of passionate classmates who will provide a variety of new perspectives and insights to help you on your way. No matter what the future brings, I will ensure you have a solid foundation to take action!"
