GLOBIS MBA TOP Faculty
“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!”

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.
