What are the benefits of GLOBIS Part-time MBA?

  • A global network in the heart of Tokyo
    You don't need to go abroad to tap into a diverse community of professionals. GLOBIS offers you Japan's largest business network made of like-minded students of different nationalities, backgrounds, and cultures.
  • A highly practical approach
    GLOBIS stands out from other business schools by incorporating practicality at all levels. All courses are based on the case method and are taught by industry experts within their fields. In addition, we provide the latest business knowledge, through our curriculum that is constantly being updated based on our many corporate relationships.
  • A flexible studying experience
    Classes are held on weeknights and weekends, with the schedule for each three-month term decided by the student. Classes can be taken on-campus, online, or a combination of both according to each person's needs and schedule. In addition, you can catch up on missed classes through our class substitution system.

What our Part-time MBA students say

"My favorite aspect of GLOBIS is the energy of the faculty and of my classmates. It is a very diverse community and, though everyone is busy, we share the workload and a lot of laughs. The on-campus classes are filled with a lot of very good discussions. On a daily basis I have learned a lot not only through the program, but also from my fellow students."
Ilja Dorsch
Part-time MBA
Operations, Transportation
"GLOBIS is not only a graduate school but, as the faculty like to say, it is also a risk-free environment. It is a place where you are free to experiment, ask questions, and test various strategies or concepts. In the best way, you are free, even encouraged, to fail and make mistakes."
Norio Tashiro
Part-time MBA
IT, Marketing
"The best aspect of GLOBIS is the people. The leaders with their great vision for our education, the lecturers who guide us through our MBA journey, the students who are always friendly and ready to meet up for study groups, and the people in student services and other departments who make everything run behind the scenes."

Two ways to start your MBA journey

Are you interested in joining the Part-time MBA, but not quite ready to commit? With the Pre-MBA program, you have the opportunity to take a limited number of for-credit MBA courses before officially enrolling into an MBA program. Start with as little as one course in your area of interest, on-campus or online. See if our classes suit your learning style, learn some practical business skills, and earn some credits that you can use to reduce your MBA workload.

If you are ready to start your MBA journey right-away, you can also apply directly to the Part-time MBA program.
