Learn More

Critical Thinking is the ability to anaylize a situation objectively, factoring in all evidence and differing perspectives in order to reach a strong, logical conclusion.

It is a teachable skill, as most people naturally make decisions based on their personal biases and emotions, without utilizing all available facts or considering different perspectives. Training yourself to be a good critical thinker is a vital skill for business leaders and is applicable across all facets of business.

After taking the Critical Thinking course, you will gain:

  • Better Decision Making
  • Sharper Analysis
  • Effective Communication
  • Stronger Persuasive Power

Full details of course dates can be found on the Course Schedule page.

How pre-MBA will help your MBA journey

Taking a pre-MBA course can provide a jumpstart to your MBA and allows you to see if GLOBIS' s style is a good fit for you.

Upon entering a GLOBIS MBA program, credits earned in the pre-MBA courses are automatically transferred and any tuition paid is deducted from the overall tuition, resulting in a lighter workload and reduced costs.
