Events and Activities
With a GLOBIS MBA you can enjoy a range of events and activities specially designed to complement and enhance your studies. From trips within Japan, to trips abroad, seminars, forums, competitions and much more.
JMEx — The Japan MBA Experience Program
Discover Japan, its culture and business community through JMEx. This intensive three-day Tokyo-based program includes cultural tours, company visits and lectures by guest speakers. JMEx has been created to welcome overseas students joining our Full-time MBA and Online MBA programs.
Entrepreneurship plays a crucial role in any community and nowhere more so than disaster-affected areas. On this special study trip, you will visit locations affected by the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake, seeing firsthand how entrepreneurs contribute to society.
