Scholarships and Loans

GLOBIS Scholarships

GLOBIS Scholarships can cover up to 50% of tuition and are available to students who demonstrate the potential to contribute to the GLOBIS community through strong academic performance and exceptional leadership qualities. To further demonstrate academic capabilities we recommend scholarship applicants to submit a GMAT or GRE score during the application process.

The application for the GLOBIS Scholarship is submitted together with the MBA application. See the Admission Guide for full details.

The scholarship amount does not cover the following fees and expenses: enrollment fee, additional tuition for long-term enrollment, non-GLOBIS textbooks, extra-curricular expenses (ex. off-site elective courses), and living expenses.

GLOBIS University provides financial assistance to non-Japanese students who are expected to hold a student visa. If you are granted a loan, you are able to postpone up to 50% of the tuition until six months after graduation, while paying a small handling fee during the one year program. You will have a maximum of five years to complete repayment of the loan.
