Tadahisa Saito
Creation
"A good manager need to have extensive management experiences and accurate understanding of various principles and frameworks of management which are effectively and organically integrated in order to tackle with various management problems he or she faces day to day. MBA education aims to first disassemble student’s practical knowledge and experiences, and then to integrate them with fundamental theories and frameworks underlying them so that he or she may make appropriate judgment and decisions on difficult and complicated management problems. I would like to emphasize that you should not leave what you have learned in each discipline or course stand alone but try to integrate them into one big ecosystem of management. Through your study at GLOBIS, I really look forward to seeing you metamorphose into really visionary leaders who create and innovate the societies by creating and renovating businesses with enhanced social corporate value."

"Throughout history, in conflict and peace, humans have faced, dealt with, and learned often from different countries, cultures, and peoples. Added to that, we now have an increasing number of organizations operating beyond national borders, helped in part by new technologies and improvements in existing ones. The world is becoming more complicated and even more complex than ever."

Toshimasa Mori
Marketing and Strategy, Organizational Behavior and HRM
"Why are a few service organizations better in and year out at what they do than their competitors? Outstanding service organizations are managed differently from their merely good competitors. Missions are stated differently. Managers act differently. Actions are based on totally different assumptions about the way success is achieved. Heskett J, et al. at HBS have developed and tested with quantifiable measures of a set of these relationships that they have come to call the service profit chain. Acquiring this concept through case discussion definitely help you mobilize your organization. The more you express your thoughts, the deeper you understand the concept."
Trond Varlid

Various skills and knowledge are required to be successful in business. Arguably one of the most difficult skills to master, however, is managing and dealing with people.Are leaders born or made? Why do people and organizations tend to resist change? How can you bring about change in your team or organization when it is needed? How do you empower and motivate your team to be successful and achieve their best performance?These are some of the key themes we will cover in our Organizational Behavior and Leadership class—and I look forward to your active participation.See you in class!
